After being set up and drugged, a hit man known only as the Sniper, awakes in prison with one thing on his mind, revenge. Once free from his cell, a John Woo-esque blood bath ensues as our "hero," the Sniper, shoots his way out of prison and scours the city for those responsible. Prison guards, crooked cops, Chinese crime bosses and the mob, are added to the ever-growing trail of dead. Sniper has no alliances, only those who stand in the way of his ultimate goal: VENGEANCE.
