Review: Rogue Assassin

Also known as the US title War, it pitches Jet Li against Jason Statham, in a pretty ordinary action flick. If you expect nothing from it (as in martial arts extravaganza a la Jet Li), it’s pretty okay. That’s mainly because the martial arts section wasn’t in an overly innovative mood for this movie. And even then, video clip director Philip G. Atwell would have ruined those anyway with faster cut sequences I’ve ever seen. I’m actually thinking he cut away 75% of those scenes, literally flashing our eyes with epilepsy inducing cuts, thereby effectively reducing eye candy to nigh zero.
We can skip the acting part, nothing to say there. That leaves the story, being pretty basic, but having still a twist at the end I found enjoyable.6½.
