Reviewer Ed Farolan

.For those who are into action pictures, especially Asian ones, this film is for you, just as it is for me. Starring action stars from three countries who pose the "the triple threat" -- Tony Jaa (Thailand), Iko Iwais (Indonesia), Tiger Chen (China), this movie is about a hit contract taken out on a Chinese billionaire's daughter (Celina Jade) who is intent on bringing down a major crime syndicate. This "triple threat" team of mercenaries takes on a group of professional assassins and have to stop them before they kill their target.

Supporting actors who play the bad guys (Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Michael Bisping) have incredible fight scenes with the three heroes. Critics have acclaimed this film as an "action epic", and I totally agree with them.
