These Hong Kong actors are like Hollywood's Rat Pack, a group likes to stay together not just on the screen but also off it. These guys are the mid older generation actors, but none of them is actually talented enough to be called "great actor". Now, they are becoming older, even past their prime, but together, they have the powerful influence in Hong Kong's movie business.
By the over-the-top settings covering Europe and Japan, lot of exotic cars smashing, crashing lot of buildings, interrupting the traffic wherever they shot those car chasing and gun fighting scenes, the production budget obviously was so big, but sadly, it was developed on a weak, loose, and ridiculous messy screenplay, scenarios and plots, extremely cliche'd. Typical Hong Kong style but like these actors, it's not a good enough, matured enough movie, so formulaic and one-way predictable, no matter how much they spent on the special effects, CGI graphic and stunt coordination.
The worst part in this movie is their Cantonese dialog, a quite ugly dialect that simply lack the seriousness what a suspenseful action thriller should be even with the good English or Chinese subtitles.
