Now, he must risk everything to take down the organization and reclaim the life he lost when he took on this perilous assignment.
I really liked the plot of this movie. It was clear why they were fighting. But the fight scenes in this movie seemed to be very stretched out. One fight scene took 10 minutes which lost my attention halfway.If they had shorter fight scenes and developed the ending a bit more it would have been a good movie. Another complaint I also had was that in the movie they were using Mandarin,Cantonese,and English randomly. I would have enjoyed the movie a lot more if they actually planned out what to say in Cantonese and what to say in Mandarin. In the beginning I asummed this "whole" movie was going to be in Cantonese but only 1/3 part of movie was in Cantonese and 2/3 of it
was in Mandarin. Either make this movie in "mainly" in Cantonese or "mainly" in Mandarin so it is easier to follow>:( But I really like how they did the stunts though.
