Jason Statham plays another ex-something who's out of the business when an injustice galvanises him back into trachea-crushing mode. Here he plays a cage fighter whose family were killed by Russian mobsters when he failed to throw a fight. Now destitute on the streets of the Big Apple (which is handy as broad Noo Yawk is the only accent Statham can do), he's trying to keep a low profile when he witnesses those same mobsters terrorising a young Chinese girl named Mei. She's only twelve but has been forced into working as a counter for the Triads. They need a code that she has in her head, but the Russians and corrupt NYPD are on the case as well. So Statham puts that combat training to righteous use to protect his new friend.
