This is by far the worst film that Jet Li has appeared in. The story moves along terribly slow, and the action sequences lack energy. I had hoped to see some good martial arts from Li like those depicted in his films “The One” and “Kiss of the Dragon,” but these scenes were derisory. The film did not transition very well between his life as a dog and his life with his new family. It seemed like in one scene he would be an uncivilized killing machine and then five minutes later he would be a soft family man. This movie was extremely disappointing.
As expected, there was plenty of violence in this film, especially since Li’s character was a hardcore killer. Also, it should be no surprise that there was a good amount of vulgar language in a movie such as this. Also, for whatever reason, it was necessary for this film to include several scenes with sexual content that had no bearing on the story at all. Unleash your right to free will and avoid this flick.
