War/The Forbidden Kingdom, Blu-ray



Double bill of martial arts action starring Jet Li.

Li and Jason Statham star in 'War' (2007). After his partner is brutally murdered by the infamous assassin Rogue (Li), FBI agent Jack Crawford (Statham) vows to find the elusive killer and personally avenge his partner's death.

But Rogue proves untraceable until three years later when he resurfaces to ignite a bloody turf war between Chinese mob leader Chang (John Lone) and Japanese Yakuza boss Shiro (Ryo Ishibashi).

Eager to capture Rogue once and for all, Crawford leads his team of crime specialists headlong into the conflict.

But Crawford's thirst for vengeance jeopardises his professional judgement, and as the violence escalates, he finally comes face to face with his enemy only to discover that nothing about Rogue or his plan is quite what it seems.

The fantasy martial arts tale 'The Forbidden Kingdom' (2008) brings together legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li for the first time.

Rummaging through a New York junk shop, American teen Jason (Michael Angarano), a martial arts obsessive, can't believe his eyes when he finds the legendary Monkey King (Jet Li)'s fighting staff.

But no sooner does he have it in his hands, than he's transported back to ancient China, joining forces with a group of warriors led by kung fu master Lu Yan (Jackie Chan), pledged to free their king from his 500 years imprisonment by the evil Jade Warlord (Collin Chou).

As the mission draws him ever-nearer to his goal of returning the staff to its master, Jason is instructed in ancient kung-fu techniques, and begins to learn about the ages-old warrior codes of loyalty, honour and trust from his companions, in readiness for the epic final battle to come.
