Jackie is and will always be my favorite actor/human being. The man nails this performance like none other. People want to talk about this not being a "Chan" movie. That was the point. He was tired of doing action/comedy and this movie did it for him. He has always been known as a martial artist who could act. When in fact he is an actor who happens to know martial arts. I throughly enjoyed this movie and for anyone who loves Jackie for his acting and not just his martial arts...Watch this movie!
Much more than an action film or drama. It’s my favorite of anything he has ever done.
I was expecting the whole usual plot but was I ever surprised. The storyline & plot takes you way off the beaten path. Lots of unexpected twists here.
Absolutely great movie and plot. Cinematically well done.
Don't believe the bad reviews or the low Rotten Tomato score. Unless you're a simple-minded idiot who only likes "action" films for the explosions, then you will likely find the film to be quite good.
It smacks a little of a Liam Neeson reboot, but the story is good and the characters make smart decisions to deepen the drama instead of opting for an opportunity for a headshot. It was entertaining.
First I really upset about that happen But end of it is finishing nice i like it
Love Jackie, but not here. For a supposed thriller it's weirdly tepid and monotonous. Aggrieved vengeance-seeking father is not a good role for Jackie. And the whole business with the IRA feels out of date, like it was a script sitting around for 30 years. (Not a very good one, either.)
My favorite Jackie Chan Movie! It’s well made. Good plot.
I loved this movie. Great story that’s relevant to the times. While the movie starts with a bang, I wouldn’t say it’s action packed because there are slow points, but the story really draws you in and makes you feel for Jackie Chan’s character. They show what’s happening now and what has happened in the past to help you feel the pain he has gone through in his life. And while Pierce Brosnan does kind of play the bad guy in a way, he does it well. And his Irish brogue was great. This a definite watch for anyone who likes an emotionally-charged action movie.
