Boring
24 March 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This film tries to be more than just an action movie but fails because of this. The plot is complex with a lot of main characters and a lot of relationships. But the story itself is absolutely boring. Another "bad Japan, good China" blabla from the Hongkong studios. After the "historical" introduction, which is as correct as the propaganda of the third Reich, you know everything about the plot you need to know. The rest is only added to make the plot more than a side-dish in a action movie. But the try to make a mixture of a action movie and a kind of a Drama or Thriller fails. The plot is boring and unnecessary and the Action is cut for the plot.

So in the end there is neither a classical Actionmovie than a Thriller.

Long story short i end: Boring movie, even for (eastern)Actionmovie fans.
