Why so bad ?
6 November 2018 | by demetrius11See all my reviews

This is an impressively bad film! However, as the CGI airplane fights are fun, I gave it a 2 instead of a well deserving 1. I never expected to see Bruce Willis in such a low standards film, but I guess the international economic crisis is forcing stars of old, to become more "flexible". This movie is about the fight of the Chinese against the evil Japanese. The true crime though is the terrible acting, direction and script. In my humble opinion one can make a great movie with only one cheap camera as long as there are a few good actors and a good solid script. Bruce Willis can not make up for the luck of script guys. Next time pay for better writers instead.
