Reasons to see WAR

Reasons to see WAR

WAR kicks ass, and you should see it a lot of times, for these reasons:

- Jason Statham yelling at people, and then kicking ass. In other words, being himself.

- Jet Li killing a guy by kicking him in the face....and that's not his best kill.

- Random girls getting nude for no reason.

- Ninjas. Just when you think this movie couldn't rock any harder, they put Ninjas in the movie.

- A twist ending that would make M. Night Shawhocares *beep* himself.

- A car chase every 10 minutes. There's even one with motorcycles.

- Violence. Lots of it. Guns, blades, blood, kungfu, decapitations, the bases are covered.

-Jet Li and Jason Statham fighting each other. It's as epic as you might think.

So, in conclusion, if you, 1. Like things that are awesome. 2. Have a pair of testicles. 3. Need to see a movie that rocks for a change. 4. Are a human being.

...than WAR is for you.
