Summary: Take the two toughies from Charlie's Angels and Desperado, mix...
This movie has great shoot'em-up scenes, although the one near the end is kinda goofy by having the good and bad guys separated by a rail yard. First the bad guys blow up some trains, then the good guys blow up some trains-- incredible explosions! Oh yeah, then they finally get around to shooting at EACH OTHER. Like explosions just for the sake of having explosions. Aside from that though, the movie is excellent-- great soundtrack, great fight scenes, decent martial arts.

The storyline is a little confusing and doesn't really hold water, so try to ignore and just watch the heroes blow up the bad guys. Had they actually had a storyline to follow that made more sense, they could have challenged the Matrix! But they didn't! Actually, some of the backstory is only explained in the trailer-- if you can believe that.
