Que Chinese-styled Indiana Jones music here...
11 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

A Chinese delve in an "Indiana Jones" and "Tomb Raider" similar universe. An entertaining enough movie for what it turned out to be, surely, but it just wasn't a particularly memorable movie.

I gobble up almost all Asian movies I get the chance to watch, and having read the synopsis for "Time Raiders", then I must admit that my interest was stirred and I was somewhat anxious to sit down and watch it.

However, while the movie does boast some pretty nice special effects and CGI effects, it just suffers from having a generic script and some equally generic characters. The storyline was rather simple, yet easy to follow; you just watch the action, and you're up to speed. However, "Time Raiders" didn't turn out to be anywhere near "Indiana Jones", nor "Tomb Raider" for that matter.

Boran Jing and Lu Han do perform well and manage to keep the movie being somewhat entertaining and watchable. But they alone just couldn't manage to lift up the movie from being less than mediocre.

"Time Raiders" is adequate enough entertainment for a single viewing if you have nothing better at hand to watch. However, don't get your hopes up too high, because this wasn't really much of a memorable experience. The movie does have some good enough action and some good enough adventure, but you are just left with sort of a hollow feeling in your gut once the movie is over. There was just something missing from the movie; that one all-important spice. There are far better Chinese movies available.

My rating of "Time Raiders" is a less than mediocre four out of ten stars.
