THIS ac­tion-packed movie star­ring Louis Koo sounds a lit­tle bit like Liam Nee­son’s Koo plays Hong Kong po­lice of­fi­cer Lee whose daugh­ter Chi (Hanna Chan) is kid­napped. His search takes him to Thai­land, where he gets the help of a Thai-Chi­nese po­lice of­fi­cer Chui Kit (Wu Yue) and his part­ner Tak (Tony Jaa). Th­ese men fi­nally get a break when a short clip of Chi’s kid­nap­ping is up­loaded onto the In­ter­net. As they get closer to un­cov­er­ing the truth, the men re­alise the case is more com­pli­cated than a straight­for­ward kid­nap­ping as it in­volves an or­gan traf­fick­ing ring.

not only fea­tures Jaa and Wu Yue – both mar­tial arts ex­perts – but also Chris Collins, a for­mer mem­ber of the US Marine Corps who has mas­tered sev­eral styles of mar­tial arts including wing chun and jiu jitsu.

is di­rected by Wil­son Yip and with fight scenes chore­ographed by Sammo Hung. – opens in cin­e­mas na­tion­wide on Aug 24.

Two knives are al­ways bet­ter than one.

Don’t know about you, but we’d rather run than fight with Jaa.

Cut­ting veg­eta­bles might go faster with big­ger knives.
