WAR (Jet Li, Jason Statham)

US release: august 24 2007.

(I’m quite sure that there was a post about this movie, but searched for all important names and it didn’t show up. Maybe it got deleted when the board was down).

From wiki:

War is an action/thriller film, directed by Phillip Atwell with Corey Yuen as the martial arts choreographer. The film is due for release in 2007 and will be rated ‘R’.

The film stars Jet Li, Jason Statham, Devon Aoki, Kane Kosugi and Steph Song.


After his partner Tom Lone (Terry Chen) and family are killed apparently by the infamous and elusive assassin Rogue (Jet Li), FBI agent Jack Crawford (Jason Statham) becomes obsessed with revenge as his world unravels into a vortex of guilt and betrayal.

Rogue eventually resurfaces to settle a score of his own, igniting a bloody crime war between Asian mob rivals Chang (John Lone) of the Triad’s and Yakuza boss Shiro (Ryo Ishibashi).

When Jack and Rogue finally come face to face, the ultimate truth of their pasts will be revealed.

Saw the trailer some time ago, looked good.

This film used to be called Rogue

Yes, but another Rogue movie is released in august, also R-rated, featuring Michael Vartan from ALIAS.

Which would explain the name change…
