I am a Jackie Chan fan. Having an actor I like in a movie doesn't always save a bad movie, but I still finf myself wanting to like the movie sometimes because of the actor. That's not necessary in Railroad Tigers. I had to read all the subtitles, and I still thoroughly enjoyed a fast paced action packed movie with an intersting story that held my attention from beginning to end. Mr Chan is a joy to watch perform.
Jackie Chan continues to impress with this period thriller that builds to a great finish. This is a fun film that gives Jackie a lot of things to do on a train and he explores every option. The film feels a little long but the last 45 minutes are pretty brilliant. He's not as physical as he used to be... but honestly who is? Good times.
This is a good return for Jackie Chan to the released movies realm. Good action and firefights, but Jackie only barely uses his martial arts. Mostly they are used for stealth strikes and hiding. This is a good Jackie style comedy action film. It highlights the underground style movement of China vs ww2 Japan.
Jackie Chan is still a number one rated martial artist in his movies and he always bring the action with him. This was a good movie to watch and I have seen it three times since my purchase just so I could watch Jackie in action. The story line was good and I liked some of the stunts.
