Jet Li and Jason Stathan are two very charismatic actors (particularly in action movies) but never been able to achieve a big success in the American market. It seems the only reason (very stupid really) is they do not speak "American English" (Stathan is British and Jet Li Chinese); something never bothered Arnold .
In any case, this time are both back and together in a thriller full cruel and bloody violent scene and several unexpected twists that completely change the movie.
Those expecting over the top martial arts fights will be disappointed. Most of the action is gun based however extremely realistic (and violent) and the good guys do not hesitate on killing in cold blood.
War is about people trying to avenge killings, fights for power and honor between Japanese Yakuza, Chinese Triads and ambition. By the end of the movie, everybody has betrayed somebody else.
Compared to other action movies, WAR requires more brains, has little humor and could be consider a little slow but it is really worth your time.
