When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An teams up his army with an elite Legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius to protect his country and his new friends.
This film reunites Director Renny Harlin and Jackie Chan after shelving Nosebleed, which would have been the only Hollywood film to allow Chan to use his signature 1-2 "Super Stunts". See more »
When Samantha tries to evade capture, she used a taser to temporarily incapacitate three persons by using it on the pool of water. Not only is the charge on taser not strong enough to pass through a large surface of water to achieve that effect, the method would not work at all as all three of them are wearing thick leather shoes.

I never would have figured you for an Adele fan.
"Rolling In The Deep" is a classic.

Look, I am a huge Jackie Chan fan and I have seen quite a few of his films that were accessible to American audiences. He has done some remarkable movies in his day. Anyone the hasn't seen Police Story 1 or 2 is missing some of the most hardcore action ever put to film. Legend of the Drunken Master is a classic film. Project A, Armour of the Gods, Rumble in the Bronx, Rush Hour, and on and on and on. I love Jackie Chan.
This film however is bad. I mean capital B A D. The action sequences are poorly filmed. The dialogue is terrible. The story progression is horrendous. The acting is atrocious. I wanted to like this movie...I really did. Jackie Chan has broken down so many barriers. His comedic style is something that has given me laughs upon laughs for years. But it just doesn't work this time.
I chalk it up to a poor script, the fact that he is probably slowing down some in his older age, and just bad direction, bad writing, and horrible editing.
Watch at your own risk.
