    War ties itself in knots trying to bring something new to a stale formula. It's never painful to watch, but that's only because it provokes no feeling at all.
  2. A kind of dumbed-down, souped-up action thriller in a quasi-"Lethal Weapon" mode.
  3. If you want to see Li and Statham in an underwhelming martial arts film, rent "The One" instead. Li talks considerably more in that movie, but at least he punches a lot of people out.

    What is it good for? Absolutely nothing. Offering neither the enjoyably preposterous auto-heroics of the Transporter movies nor the lithe, legible athleticism of even second-tier Hong Kong thrillers.

    Reasons to see WAR

    WAR kicks ass, and you should see it a lot of times, for these reasons:

    Jason Statham yelling at people, and then kicking ass. In other

    words, being himself.

    Jet Li killing a guy by kicking him in the face....and that's not his

    best kill.

    Random girls getting nude for no reason.

    Ninjas. Just when you think this movie couldn't rock any harder, they

    put Ninjas in the movie.

    A twist ending that would make M. Night Shawhocares *beep* himself.

    A car chase every 10 minutes. There's even one with motorcycles.

    Violence. Lots of it. Guns, blades, blood, kungfu, decapitations, the

    bases are covered.

    -Jet Li and Jason Statham fighting each other. It's as epic as you might think.

    So, in conclusion, if you, 1. Like things that are awesome. 2. Have a pair of testicles. 3. Need to see a movie that rocks for a change. 4. Are a human being.

    ...than WAR is for you.
