Rogue Assassin (also known as War)Directed by: Phillip Atwell. Scriptwriters: Lee Smith & Gregory Bradley

In “Rogue Assassin,”Jet Li dons the villain suit for the second time since“Lethal Weapon 4,”with Hollywood superstar Mel Gibson in the title role. But in Rogue, Li is of course the lead, alongside Jason Statham of “The Transporter” series. The film follows FBI agent Jack Crawford’s (Statham) vindictive search for the dangerously elusive Rogue (Li), responsible for the murder of Crawford's partner. When Rogue resurfaced, Crawford didn’t only have his nemesis to think of but also the escalating “turf war between Chinese mob leader Chang (John Lone) and Japanese Yakuza boss Shiro (Ryo Ishibashi)."


The film feasted on the three G's linked with organized crime: girls, guns and gore! Characters shouted profanities and insults at every twist and turn, with a brutal detail: decapitation—an unusual form of punishment as far back as the time of the Samurai, the military nobility of pre-industrial Japan.


Rogue Assassin's theme is reminiscent of the 2000 blockbuster "Romeo Must Die"which launched Li as a bankable Hollywood leading man.He pursued a similar thematic vein in "Kiss of the Dragon" (2001) and “Cradle 2 the Grave" (2003).
Unlike in these 3 films, Li's superlative Wushu skills were displayed on a bare minimum and an hour 15 minutes late. Yes, Li’s moves on screen are not called "Kung Fu," but are actually borrowed from "Wushu," an elegant, dance-like and almost hypnotic form of Martial arts. Whatever name you want to call Li’s style, it’s a far cry from his brand of fighting found in earlier works such as “Hero,” “The One” and “Fearless."


But Jet Li still managed to shine in the film with his powerful bearing and magnetic character. A disciple of method acting first taught by the great Constantin Stanislavski, Li plunges into the role so effectively that you’ve actually started to believe that he is Rogue. Or is he who he really says he is?


Nadie Como Tú (Spanish version of There is None Like You) by Danilo Montero

Thanks to my brother-in-law's endless fascination with anything Español, I got introduced to the Spanish version of There Is None Like You which I consider to be one of my favorite worship songs of all time.  I remember that I fell in love with it the first time I heard it and the same thing happened when I first listened to its Spanish version, Nadie Como Tú.  I found the translation mellifluous and incredibly successful in retaining the mood, tone and message of its English counterpart. 


Here's the Spanish version complete with lyrics followed by the English original. May our hearts and minds be joined as one in the belief that there is really no one else in this world who loves you and me more than our God.

Nadie como tú
Nadie mas llena mi ser como tú
Por la eternidad podría buscar
Mas no hay Nadie como tú.

Tu misericordia es como un río
Tus manos traen sanidad
Los niños hayan en ti su refugio
Nadie como tu

Nadie como tu
Nadie mas llena mi ser como tu
Por la eternidad podría buscar
mas no hay Nadie mas como tu.
Nadie como tu

Nadie como tu
Por la eternidad podría buscar
Mas no hay nadie como tu.

There is none like You
No one else can touch my heart like You do
I could search for all eternity long and find
There is none like You
Your mercy flows like a river wide
And healing comes from
Your hands

 Suffering childen are safe in Your arms
There is none like You
I could search for all eternity long and find
There is none
There is none
There is none like You.

El Poder De Tu Amor (Spanish Version of The Power of Your Love)

If you feel like your daily devotion has lost its luster, try singing your favorite praise and worship song in a different tongue.

 Ever since I've begun learning the Spanish equivalent of “The Power of Your Love,” my devotionals have become more meaningful.

The song helped me realize that I could bare my soul to God devoid of any judgment. And in an amazing display of affection, He embraces and keeps me safe "por el poder de tu amor."





El Poder De Tu Amor
by Ingrid Rosario 

Vengo a ti Señor
cambiame renuevame
Por la gracia que encontre en
ti.
Ahora se que las
debilidades que hay en mi
Desvanecerán por el Poder de
tu amor.

CORO:
Cúbreme
con tu amor rodeame
Tómame
cerca quiero estar
Y al esperar
nuevas fuerzas yo tendré
Y me levantaré
como las aguilas
Por el poder de tu amor.

Yo te quiero ver
cara a cara oh Señor,
y conocer así más
de ti en mi.
Preparame Señor
para hacer tu voluntad
viviendo cada día
por el poder de tu amor.

CORO:
Cúbreme
con tu amor rodeame
Tómame
cerca quiero estar
Y al esperar, nuevas fuerzas yo tendré
Y me levantaré como las aguilas
Por el poder de tu amor.
Y me levantaré como las aguilas
Por el poder de tu amor.

Here's the English translation to make it easier for all of us to understand the beauty of the song.

The Power of Your love Lyrics
Words and Music by Geoff Bullock
Artist: Maranatha Singers

Lord I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I've found in You.
Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see
In me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love.

Chorus:
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me
Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
By the power of Your love.

Thanks U for sharing these songs with us.
