An earnest gang-warfare melodrama that may make some Chan fans long for "Rush Hour 4."

Though hyped as a rare straight dramatic outing by Chan, the picture still has him displaying his action skills, if less sensationally than usual.
Despite its Hong Kong pedigree (veteran Derek Yee directs), Shinjuku Incident forgoes flashy action scenes in favor of old-fashioned moralism. Warner Bros. could have made it in the 1930s, and that's a compliment.
Overall, the film is somber, gripping and at times achieves an epic sweep as a dark chapter on the Chinese diaspora.
