We gave it a B-

With a kidnapped daughter and a load of stolen gemstones that he doesn’t want, Tony Fait (DMX), a no-nonsense gangsta-preneur samurai, runs the gauntlet of action cliches with earnest abandon. He’s assisted by a Taiwanese superagent (Jet Li, refreshingly unfettered by computer effects), and they turn in a businesslike action thriller — which is fine, because business is actually pretty good.
