A full-throttle, martial arts thriller, Lionsgate's WAR stars Jet Li (FEARLESS, UNLEASHED, THE ONE) and Jason Statham (CRANK, THE ITALIAN JOB) as two adversaries set on a violent collision course in the Asian mob underground. Produced by Steven Chasman, Jim Thompson and Christopher Petzel, WAR is directed by Philip G Atwell from a script by Lee Anthony Smith and Gregory J Bradley.
After his partner Tom Lone (Terry Chen) and family are killed apparently by the infamous assassin Rogue (Jet Li), FBI agent Jack Crawford (Jason Statham) vows to find the elusive killer and personally avenge his partner's death. He becomes obsessed with revenge as his world unravels into a vortex of guilt and betrayal.
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.
Crawford's thirst for vengeance jeopardizes his professional judgment, and as the violence escalates, Crawford finally comes face to face with his enemy to discover that nothing about Rogue or his plan is quite what it seems. As Rogue and Crawford have their final face off, the ultimate truth of their pasts will be revealed.
