Action icon Donnie Yen stars in this gripping martial arts thriller about a reformed gang lord on the run and a ruthless detective determined to bring him to justice. Liu Jin–xi (Yen) is a village craftsman whose quiet life is shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters. When Liu single–handedly saves the shopkeeper’s life, he comes under investigation by detective Xu Bai–jiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro). Convinced that Liu's martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region's vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero — and draws the attention of China's criminal underworld in the process.
