This time, a precocious 12 year-old math prodigy named Mei (Catherine Chan) is abducted from Beijing and forced to work as a ‘counter’ for the Chinese Triads in New York, remembering coded numbers, charting ledgers and keeping account balances. The wary Chinese, headed by Han Jiao (James Hong), don’t trust computer documentation because they can get hacked. Then Mei is kidnapped by the Russians, run by mobster Vassily Docheski (Joseph Sikora), because her photographic memory contains the combinations to two safes. Miraculously, she escapes from her brutal captors on a Brooklyn subway platform, where she’s found, frightened and alone, by brawny Luke Wright (Statham), an ex-cop turned cage-fighter who is destitute and grieving, living in a homeless shelter and contemplating suicide after his pregnant wife was murdered by the Russians because he didn’t take a dive in a rigged Mixed Martial Arts match. Then there are more complications when it’s revealed that Luke was hired by crooked New York City Mayor Tremello (Chris Sarandon) and corrupt Captain Wolf (Robert John Burke) to control and extort from local mafia groups after 9/11.
