Mei (Catherine Chan) has a string of memorized numbers that the Chinese and Russian mafias want. Cage fighter Luke (Jason Statham) won a match the mob needed him to throw. After the mob kills his pregnant wife in retaliation, Luke finds a purpose in Mei: keeping her “safe.” The rest is a flurry of quick-cut beat-downs and crackling one-liners. Writer-director Boaz Yakin does well, and even though it’s nothing new, Statham is about as safe a bet as it gets in B-movie action.
