Danny is a very strong and emotional man, but he has not been given any kind of proper education, and perhaps he knows only one thing and he is fighting only. Danny is accompanied by Bart, the man who treats him like a guard dog without any proper human interest. Danny becomes the only man who uses the differences and quarrels that earn Bart a lot of money. After a while, Bart is injured in a car accident. After that, Danny does not want to be like a human assault dog, but he wants to escape from his captors trying to start over in a life that looks completely different.
This is by far Jet Li's best English language film, and one of the finest of his career, not because of the thrillingly choreographed fight sequences but because of its well constructed story and Li's riveting performance.
The film contains enough quiet, reflective moments for us to become aware how preposterous the central conceit is, and that keeps us at arm's length. For a movie that strives to be in-your-face, that's too far away.
