  1. 1
    An African American mafia hit man who models himself after the samurai of old finds himself targeted for death by the mob.(from imdb).
    Part mob film, part art film, this movie redefines the action genre & put it in another level.

    The stunt work & action here would make the Expendables cry. You'll be screaming "Oh SH*T" the whole time.
  7. 7
    The heroine archetype for all of Luc Besson's films. Love the short hair & boots. An early "Leon" played by Jean Reno also appeared in the film.
  8. 8

    I always have dreams of me being chased by someone or thing or Akuma, so when I saw this film I can immediately relate to Jet Li running around & hiding & running & fighting.
