Movie Review: Rogue Assassin

Rogue Assassin was a pretty interesting show to watch. Starring my two favorite actors, Jet Li( Wong Fei Hung series) and Jason Statham (The Transporter), this was a sure watch for me.

The movie is basically about Jack Crawford(Jason) trying to investigate his friend's murder, Tom Lone. Tom was murdered by an assassin they called the Rogue, which was suppose to be a mythical person. The story then later sets off 3 years after Tom's death, and Jack finally found that Rogue was working for the Triads.

This story has so many plot twists(hint : * Double Agent) that it made the show very interesting. Music was done by Brian Tyler( did the FnF: Tokyo Drift). The car chase scene was very Tokyo Drift-esque; revving engines and gear shifts( and some drifts too). Also, there were easter eggs, especially the pistol that they used in this show. Rogue's pistol seems to be able to shoot silently without a silencer attachment, and sometimes it goes with a loud bang. This seems to apply to every guns Rogue used, even the enemies.

All in all, I think one should give show a watch. I give it an 8 out 10 rating.
