I love everything about this movie. I am a Jet and Jason fan, and to have both men in one movie is a treat for me. Rarely, in martial arts movies, you either get to see a sword fight, hand to hand combat, gun fight, or like David Carradine's kung fu version. This movie had it all! Jet plays an assassin seeks revenge on a FBI agent played by Jason. There is a cat and mouse chasing experience thru out the movie between Jet and Jason. In between the chaos, Jet managed to get rid of Japanese ninjas and Chinese triads at the same time while at the end he finally got a chance to battle his most wanted man, Jason. The only part that I didn't like was that Jet and Jason had too quick of a fight and also lacking much of the martial arts skills that the two men had. However, the director explains why he make them fight that way. I understood then after I watched the MAKING of the movie. I decided to buy this movie several times because I really enjoyed it. So, I bought a few for my friends and co workers. If you're a fan of both men or just one man, buy it. I don't recommend this film for kids tho, too violent!
I at first wasn't sure about this film..but now that I have seen it I am a HUGE fan of Jason Stratham and Jet Li..Film opens with two Agents doing battle with the baddies, very impressive scenes..Fast forward a pleasant sunny day for a BBQ..in walks a a masked assassin..when the guests arrive they find the house burned nearly down, three bodies one man, a woman and a little Girl..a vendetta is formed between the assassin and the remaining Partner...the Partner wants revenge, but it's not what you think. What viewers will see is a non stop action packed thrill ride of a movie..twists and turns galore..no one will see the ending coming..I do love that in a film!
When I first saw the preview for a movie starring Jason Statham and Jet Li, my first reaction was that it was too good to be true.
...Then I saw the movie.
Not only does War deliver in action (though more Statham-Li fight scenes would have been nice), but War also sports a surprisingly well-written script and plot line. For the nay-sayers of "dumb action movies", this is not one of those!
Ironically, one of my favorite parts of the movie are the subtitles. The subtitles that switch from Japanese or Chinese characters into English as they are spoken are just simply cool.
The DVD offers a very good picture, audio, etc. and is an excellent DVD. There is not much more that I can say about this film, but I think you need to see it.
This movie is everything a street war should be, with a little twist. Yakuza and Triads have always been at war, and to put an insider (Jet Li) in between both gangs to cause even more mayhem is just crazy. Jason Statham is a pretty good fighter in his own rank. Can't compare to Jet Li but he can still hold his ground. These two did good in the ONE. WAR tops that movie by a long shot. A definite movie to watch if you are into the street war or gang war type of flick. You have deception, guns and of course martial arts. I own all Jet Li movies and this is at the top of my list so far.
Jason Statham is a police detective caught in the middle of the worst
tong-yakuza war in the city's history. Trying to put an end to the killing,
he is foiled at every opportunity by this shadowy assassin (played by Li, in
probably his first starring role as the villain). The killing soon turns towards the wives and children of the gangsters, and Statham is in a race against time to save the innocent from this heartless killer. The acting is excellent all around, the Blu-ray shines in pic quality. DO NOT see this movie
if extreme violence (especially against children) is repugnant to you.
This is an excellent movie action packed all the way through it fast cars, muscle cars, bikes street chases, foot chases, and more! good music from the start and the special effects were brilliant, id rate this movie from 1-10 a 10! one of the best movies of 2008 i have seen, although I wouldn't recommend it for kids under 18 there is a little nudity in it and a lot of violence overall 2 thumbs up! especially the full screen dvd
If you like Jason Statham as an actor, you'll like this one. I enjoyed his movie Chaos, Crank, and Italian Job, and the Transporter series. Jet Li does a good job as well playing the role of the bad guy. This movie is full of twists and turns, and suspense as well as plenty of action. Great movie. I had to own it. Highly recommended to fans of Jason Statham or Jet Li. Or just fans of Action movies in general.
Couldn't wait to see this movie. I am a huge Jason Statham fan and this was definately one of his best movies so far. Jason and Jet Li have amazing fight scenes together and separately. The movie line got right to the point, there was no lingering around for 20 minutes until something started to happen, it got right to why we were watching. The fight sequences were awesome, very real. Story line was good with a great ending...which most movies don't have anymore. Highly recommended!!!
I bought this DVD to add to my collection of Jason Statham movies, I have followed this actor from Lock Stock 2 Smoking Barrels until this is latest work to date. This movie is also one oF Jet Li's better films and the 2 actors work very well together.
THIS MOVIE IS FULL OF ACTION.I LIKE THIS MOVIE BECAUSE JET LI IS A GOOD ACTION ACTOR.THE REVENGE FACTOR KEEPS YOU IN YOUR SEAT AND GLUED TO THE SET.MOVIES LIKE THIS I KEEP IN MY LIBRARY FOREVER.WILL WATCH OVER AND OVER FOR YEARS TO COME.
I BOUGHT THIS DVD BECAUSE I WANTED TO ADD IT TO MY COLLECTION. THE PRICE WAS RIGHT AND DID RESEARCH ON THE SELLER GOOD TO GO.SHOULD HAVE DONE IT SOONER. THIS MOVIE IS AWSOME.
