Agree that this is one of the better Seagal films of late, not because of any originality in plot, cinematography, characters or what not but a predictable action film without silly twists: a tough big guy highly skilled in aikido and good with guns but a softie who couldn’t help himself to annihilate criminals who preyed on the weak. Fun watch.

This Steven Seagal movie was better than some of his last few movies. I especially liked his co-star, Byron Mann. Byron has been in several of Steven's movies and his martial arts add to the action. This was a pretty good action movie.

If you have liked Steven Seagal's movies in the past you will like this one. I liked this one better that the past 2 or 3.

I'm gonna tell you something. I been a bad man. I've been a very bad man, most of my life. I learned to not trust anybody. I lost my faith in mankind. I decided I wanna do one thing... in my life. One good thing, in my life, before I die. Even if I die in the process. I need to do that for my own absolution.
===

Remember the Macau job?
-I do.
Well, you saved my life, on that one.
- That's what we do.
That's what we do. From that point on, this was no longer about repaying a debt. OK? You became my 'hintai.' My brother. Where I come from, there's a saying. It means, when the knives come out, if you're my brother, I'll be there for you. No words need to be spoken. As the tong's enforcer, the Red Pope, I'll do whatever it takes to honor them. That's how we do, man. We live together, we die together. We walk together, we fight together.

There's a big difference between... a real warrior and a wannabe. Wannabes are always talkin'. And that's the deal with you, Van Horn, you're always talkin', you always give your position away. Real warriors, they don't really say much. They just do what they gotta do.
===

I think you're saying you set me up?
-This is kind of what we call, in the old school, a reversal. If I were you, man, you have to start lookin', really quick. Be careful, man, you have to watch your six, now.
===
- When the knives come out...
- No words need to be spoken.
