Martial arts superstar Jet Li delivers a break-out performance in the gripping, action-packed story about a man raised from childhood by a ruthless crime boss (Academy Award® nominee Bob Hoskins) and becomes a violent killing machine. When a blind piano tuner (Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman) takes him in, Danny (Li) tries to start a new life, but his brutal past follows him, forcing him to fight back. Featuring breath-taking fight choreography by Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix and Kill Bill: Vols. 1 & 2).

    I heard the soundtrack music by Massive Attack on Pandora and it was so good that I got curious about the movie. The movie was excellent. Jet Li was perfect in the roll of Danny. What a great find.

    This movie is most def in my top 10 the action is great and the story line is pretty good. Jet Li is a brianwashed dog of sorts who is under the control of a chubby lil small time mob boss. How u might ask? well in the words of the boss "My mum always said if u can get em' young the possabilitys are endless" so basically hes totally beaten down and brainwashed. the Boss uses him as an attack dog for people who dont pay up. after a rival gang shoots up jets masters car with him in side he wanders off critacly wounded and stumbles apon morgan freeman who plays a blind piano tuner. Great fight seens and slow motion sequences. the plots not overly coplex and they get the moral of the movie across well. Its never to late to start a new beginning
  • Very enjoyable movie
