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.
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.
