Ivan Sadler quote iconAlthough it is far from terrible, Rogue Assassin is a mediocre film at best, lacking the sharp wit of amusing actioners like Snatch and spectacular visceral action that Li is famous for.
10
BBC
Paul Arendt quote iconFor all the bloodletting, this is more of a gangster procedural than a martial arts slugfest.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconLi and the fight scenes are the reasons to see War. Everything else, including the surprisingly convoluted plot, is superfluous.
