Jet Li plays a martial arts expert who breaks out of his Japanese jail when he learns his brother in America has been killed. Arriving in America, he discovers that his brother was murdered, and sets out to avenge the death.
Li learns that his father's gang was at war with another gang - and they apparently killed his brother. He also meets Aaliyah, the daughter of the other gang's leader. They start a romance in the midst of this uncomfortable gang war - to their families' great dismay, of course.
The plot dragged and I wasn't too impressed by any of these characters, but the martial arts action scenes were fun and impressive. The actors were well cast and convincing; they just didn't have the best characters to play.
