And Wo knows.
Wong a Hong Kong superstar who's slated to appear in the next Mummy film, forebodingly subtitled Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, alongside Brendan Fraser and Jet Li gives a subtle performance that's Exiled's heart. Though much screen time is given to Ho's anxious wife, Wong's quietly resigned hit man carries more power. His greatest moment of emotion comes when he realizes that the gang, seemingly on the brink of freedom, is obligated to follow through on a promise made to a fallen partner in crime. It's a dilemma fit for any good pistol opera and Exiled just happens to be a great one.<\!s>*
