Storyline

Chinese archeology professor Jack (Jackie Chan) teams up with beautiful Indian professor Ashmita and assistant Kyra to locate lost Magadha treasure. In a Tibetan ice cave, they find the remains of the royal army that had vanished together with the treasure, only to be ambushed by Randall (Sonu Sood), the descendent of a rebel army leader. When they free themselves, their next stop is Dubai where a diamond from the ice cave is to be auctioned. After a series of double-crosses and revelations about their past, Jack and his team travel to a mountain temple in India, using the diamond as a key to unlock the real treasure. Written by Official

Multicultural Family Film (No Spoilers)
29 August 2017 | by dishlady69See all my reviews

The overall plot is that Chan teams up with an Indian archaeologist who is interested in a historical legacy that is shared by India and China. Chan's team is devoted to the respect and preservation of this joint history and its ancient roots. (No Spoilers, but things are not quite what they seem.)

Another great action film featuring Jackie Chan, here a modern version of Indiana Jones with the added touch of his classic kung fu moves. (In fact, Indiana Jones is referenced directly at one point in this movie. (No spoilers!)) Several humorous scenes mixed in with the usual combination of action scenes that are typical in Chan's movies, and as usual kung fu saves the day. It's refreshing to have a family-friendly film. Choreography is great throughout, but most especially in the closing scene, which is meant to emphasize the unity Chan's team strives to discover.

Great use of costumes and technology throughout the film. Intricate set designs and a few scenes showcasing the beauty of modern India and classic artifacts from both cultures. (Whether the "artifacts" are authentic or fictional, I can't say for sure, but the effects are brilliant.)

(It would have been great to have cleaner subtitles, though, which is really the only negative about the film.)
