Wei is pissed that Lee could not complete the contract, and not only seeks to kill him, but hires replacement killers in order to finish the job that Lee could not. Worse, he also has his men in China start looking for Lee's family to take revenge upon them as well. Lee seeks to ensure his family's safety by having them moved to a secure location, and for this purpose enlists the help of forger Meg Coburn (MiraSorvino) to forge a passport for him to China. The two soon have to deal with not only the assassins out to end Lee, but the replacement killers out to kill the cop and his son
