Jackie Chan is out to avenge his daughter's murder in this action thriller co-starring Pierce Brosnan and directed by Kiwi Martin Campbell (Casino Royale).

Quan (Chan) is a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love - his teenage daughter - dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. His relentless search to find the terrorists leads to a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan) whose own past may hold the clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

It's good to see Chan swapping his happy-go-lucky persona for two hours for some gravitas as a tragic rogue with a marked past.

Campbell's unfussy style works well with Chan's choreography. The star's willingness to look his 63 years makes the falls look like they really hurt and creates a sense of jeopardy when Quan finds himself outnumbered. Hide
