Just to make his point, Shelton blew up a dozen District Attorneys and kills a judge. And that’s just for starters. Talked about one pissed off dad!

    You have one pairing of Jet Li with Xie Mao (the badass little boy) but you don't have their first team up as father and son “The Legend of The Red Dragon.” Xie Mao was even younger.

    And why hasn't there been a remake of “Lone Wolf and Cub?” I'd love to see that remade with like Ken Watanabe, Chow Yun Fat or even Jet Li, or Donnie Yen. Or hell a re-imagining of it in like a post apocalyptic setting.
