Jackie Chan's son Jaycee appeared in this movie (though not as his son). At one point, both are arrested by the Japanese, who note how much they look alike, prompting a comic argument disputing this. See more »

User Reviews

 
I like comedy, but there's too much comedy.
13 June 2018 | by avidcritic23See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of the goofy, slapstick comedy Hong Kong movies use to be funny. The first half hour of the movie delivers a lot of funny moments that keep me cracking up. But later into the movie, the whole comedic tone was too much to the point where the vibe wasn't set right, like there needed to be dramatic scenes or any serious moment to strengthen the story.

Also, I love that this isn't a usual Jackie Chan movie that presents Jackie Chan punching and kicking like almost all of his movies. Instead, Railroad Tigers is presented as an actual action movie with stunts and shootouts. It's great to take a break from Jackie Chan's fighting scenes once in a while.

For those who want endless laughter, go ahead and watch this movie. For those who want the story to be more emphasized, this isn't the movie to watch.
