Quan (Jackie Chan), a restaurant owner with a complicated past, is living in London with his 15-year-old daughter, Fan. He drops her off at a boutique in order to buy a dress for school, while he goes to park. A bomb goes off in the street, killing Fan and several other people. Desperate to know the names of each person responsible for Fan's death, Quan seeks out Irish Deputy Minister Liam Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan), who refuses to help him.

A group calling themselves The Authentic IRA claims responsibility for the bombing and Quan is certain Hennessy knows their identities. He begins to hound Hennessy, using all the knowledge and skills from his past life in order to get revenge for his daughter's death.

  • 3 stars "The movie was slow in parts, but Jackie Chan is so great in his movies. There was lots of violence and not recommended for children ... making bombs, lots of guns. He's still in great shape for his age and no plastic surgery for him."
  • 5 stars "Jackie is the realist big homie of 2017. Best movie by far.... they didn't take him serious until it was too late. P.S. to whom this may concern"
  • 4 stars "Well it is about time Jackie put his chops so to speak to good use. Kicking terrorist's assess. 30 years ago would have been better. A great story with some great acting by everyone. I will see again"
