Ngoc Minh Quan (Jackie Chan), a former Vietnam War special operations forces soldier, runs a Chinese restaurant called Happy Peacock in London with his business partner Lam (Tao Liu). When his teenage daughter Fan (Katie Leung) is killed in a clothing store bombing, he seeks revenge. The bombing is claimed by a group calling itself the "Authentic IRA". Failing to get the names of the bombers from Scotland Yard, Quan next focuses on the Northern Ireland deputy First Minister Liam Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan), who speaks publicly about his status as a former IRA leader while condemning the bombing. Quan eventually leaves for Belfast and seeks out Hennessy, who claims to have no knowledge of the bombing or its perpetrators. Quan does not believe him, and sets off a homemade bomb in Hennessy's building as a warning unless he gets the bombers' names.
Hennessy tries to identify the bombers with help from his contacts, but the rogue members catch on and outwit him. Quan observes Hennessy seeing his mistress, Maggie (Charlie Murphy), and photographs them. Quan then brings the fight to Hennessy, hiding in the woods outside his Belfast farmhouse and attacking it with more explosives. As Hennessy's men attempt to track him in the woods, Quan uses traps to disable them but is shot in the shoulder and flees. After Quan ambushes Hennessy in his house, the latter sends his nephew Sean Morrison (Rory Fleck-Byrne), a former Royal Irish Regiment soldier, after Quan in hopes that his tracking skills can be used to stop him. Later Hugh McGrath (Dermot Crowley), one of Liam's old IRA commanders during The Troubles arrives and asks Liam why his weapon dumps are being searched. Liam tells Hugh that the explosives used in the bombing came from one of his dumps. When questioned about the missing explosives, McGrath denies knowing anything and claims that everything was in order. McGrath, then tells Liam that he believes the bombings should continue rather than stop and tries to persuade Liam to think the same. Liam refuses, stating that his violent days are over. Angry, McGrath then berates Liam, claiming that politics has made him soft. Hugh then leaves, but not before Liam threatens him saying if the bombers aren't caught, then he's going after him next.
