A good Jackie Chan movie is about the slapstick action scene and the death defying stunt works and this movie have some of it but the rest is pretty disappointed.Directed by Ding Sheng who you may familiar with movie like:Little Big Solder(his best works yet) and Police Story Lockdown.Railroad Tigers is one again a action war comedy movie staring Jackie Chan as the leader of a bunch of railroad worker fighting again The Japanese in China 1941.With a plot sound very historic and epic the movie we got is a slow pacing movie over 2 hours full of dull character when they make unfunny jokes and bad decision left to right both from the good guys to bad guys.The horrible CGI train robbery to weird movie jump cut scene through out the movie almost make this unwatchable but thank to Jackie Chan movie charm on screen,a couple of good stunt work and a epic shootout scene in the finale saving this this movie from becoming a disaster
