Jackie Chan is NOT the star. Leave this movie in obscurity where it belongs
1 January 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

(Credit IMDb) Superkicker Dorian Tan Tao-liang plays a Shaolin student who must find a Manchu traitor responsible for the murder of the abbot. Jackie Chan is a spear fighting expert who decides to help Tan because the traitor killed his brother. Part of their mission is to help a scholar make it safely across the river without getting killed from the Manchus.

I've been checking out Jackie's older works as of late. He's made a few gems, but a lot of stinkers as well. When I saw the cast and that this was directed by John Woo, my expectations raised significantly. This one comes with a heavy plot. It throws in some fight scenes, but in all honesty I was rather bored. The fights aren't terrible, but none of them are exciting enough to get you into the movie like you should be doing. Jackie Chan has a mere supporting role. Sammo Hung plays a cop with these laughable buck teeth. It's a waste of talent in my opinion. I had trouble paying attention to this movie because it was so boring. You may think differently.

3/10
