Details Release Date: Feb 28, 2003; Rated: R; Length: 100 Minutes; Genres: Action/Adventure, Mystery and Thriller; With: DMX and Jet Li; Distributor: Warner Bros.

With a kidnapped daughter and a load of stolen gemstones that he doesn't want, Tony Fait (DMX), a no-nonsense gangsta-preneur samurai, runs the gauntlet of action cliches with earnest abandon. He's assisted by a Taiwanese superagent (Jet Li, refreshingly unfettered by computer effects), and they turn in a businesslike action thriller -- which is fine, because business is actually pretty good.
