Consensus: Jet Li and Jason Statham find themselves on opposing sides in the immensely boring War, which is full of clichés but short on action.

In spite of a late-game adrenaline surge, the hoped-for fireworks between Li and Statham never quite materialize.

A needlessly elaborate plot somewhat spoils the pairing of these martial-arts icons, but this sturdy B-movie thriller has enough style to overcome its formulaic trappings.

Not so much a narrative as a barrage of violent images designed to beat the brain into abject surrender.
