Review byMatthew Turner18/10/2000

Hip Hop meets kung fu in this non-stop action thriller.

Jet Li plays Han Sing who breaks out of prison and hikes over to SanFrancisco after he discovers his trouble-attracting brother has been killed in a gang war.

There he falls for the daughter of the rival gang leader (but that’s as far as any Shakespeare comparisons should go) and gets embroiled in various unbelievable, but wickedly executed, fight scenes after he gets caught up in a battle for ‘turf’.

Fast, furious fun, worth a viewing.
