Filler: The Movie
6 December 2014 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I'm torn on this movie because I found that it was enjoyable, containing some of the silly moments and a lot of the great martial arts action we've come to expect of Jackie Chan, but it's also overlong. The greatest fight in this movie is making it to the ninety minute mark, and that begins with an overlong football sequence that goes nowhere and doesn't establish much of anything. Then the story kicks in, Jackie plays Dragon, who lives with his father and winds up losing his best friend over girl troubles, only to regain him later when they discover a plot to smuggle all of China's greatest treasures. Then, the film puts in an overlong shuttlecock match to pad things out before moving toward the finale.

What tore me was that the football match was needlessly long but the shuttlecock match was actually kind of entertaining. It showed off some of Jackie's athletic prowess and was shot well enough to keep me interested. Filler is filler and good filler is still filler, but I don't think that the match took away from anything.

The final battle between Jackie and the half-blind smuggler is what you're here to see and it is a glorious fight, one of Jackie's best.

I think Dragon Lord is a pretty good film and manages to cover all the Jackie Chan bases while not falling into the "typical" category most Jackie movies tend to. It stands out as a good, entertaining movie.
