[Kogan is stalking Meg]
I'm gonna find you. But you could save me time and put a bullet in your head. If the positions were reversed, I'd do the same for you.
[he becomes distracted, then she appears behind him]
Gonna put a bullet in your head, now that our positions are reversed?
[attempts to laugh]
Meg, it doesn't...
[he wheels around, she shoots him dead]
I didn't think so.

Tarance Wei son is killed by a detective, so he decides to hire John Lee to kill the detective's son. John can't do the job and figures his family will be in danger. He attempts to get to China and meets up with Meg. The two become partners in this action packed movie. The movie has a lot of style but there isn't real strong substance. The action scenes are quite good and there are funny scenes throughout the movie and the final action scene was done quite well. I give this movie 3/5. Rated PA
