One of the Best films I have seen from Jackie Chan in a long time (by tigdrgn01)
Allow me to start by saying if you are expecting a non stop action fight film....Don't. This film is one build on story not action. The fight scenes are good but not the best for modern day film goers. The film depicts events on the Silk Road involving Chinese, Roman, and other countries who travel and protect this region. I have read other reviews on here concerning this film and give it a low rating due to non-action scenes. This film is not a blow them up and add more dynamite type of film. It makes one think.Jackie Chan has begun a long line of historical films, that have been ranked <more>
low on his career but its these films that he is most proud of. They show a history of China and its surrounding regions that most people in the west would never hear of.
Epic War and Heartwarming Story (by fatemaster2003)
Probably to almost anyone, seeing the trailer of Dragon Blade for a couple of times might piqued your interest, especially when you see a couple of A-list actors and actresses in it. Most notably are Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Adrien Brody and Choi Si Won one of ex-member from K-Pop band, Super Junior .While most of the review I've seen here is pretty much saying this one is an utter disappointment, I for myself personally don't think so.To me, Jackie Chan along with Daniel Lee has managed to pull this out quite remarkably. Their choices for the actors are good, because each one of <more>
'em could play the role nicely. They could get into their role so deep, you would think they were re-enacting a piece of story from their personal life.Maybe there is a couple of flaws here and there, like the ruin in the very beginning of the show that's not old enough and for another keen eyes, this might kill the mood, because basically, we were promised a story that might happened thousand years ago. But truth be told, it was not really a problem, since the ruin itself is just a fake one, created to fit into the real story of Silk Road.Story-wise, some of you might find it cheesy and predictable. Some of you might even say that the character Chan played Huo An , was unbelievably too kind, like he was just character from a fairytale. Is it really like that? If you follow the story and try to delve into the character of Huo An, to every tragedy ever happened to him told in the story , you might understand why he always talk about peace.Or maybe how Cusack was not cut out for the role of Roman Empire general, Lucius? Don't think so. He actually played the role real good, he could showed how it feels to be betrayed, to hate and to trust. Brody as the villain Tiberius, has also done a very great job. You could see his character in a whole new way, the way he lust for power and ambitions. The twisted way of a mad man ready to betray and kill, as already told in the trailer his own family.How about the fight and the war scenes or any other details? I won't go into more detail about those topics and it's best if you go watch it yourself. You should, because as predictable as it was, the morale of the story is very touching and heartwarming.It's true, peace between races and nations might be a naive topic these days, but I honestly think, it is actually very nice. I think, this is how Chan convey his own ideal to the real world, about how all nations should be united and not be in conflict with each other.All in all, I give this movie 10/10. A must watch!
Heart Warming Story about Friendship, Loyalty and Sacrifice (by uyguyo12)
It's not everyday that you see movies like these coming out of Hollywood or mainstream media. This was actually a well thought out, written and directed movie. Granted there were some mistakes and plot holes like how in the heck did a Roman Legion on the run from the very center of the empire make its way all the way through the Silk Road? Or the lousy background of keeping a fragile sense of peace among the 48 nations contesting the route. Or even the Romans enlisting the help of its lifelong enemies the Parthians.Suspension of belief and historical inaccuracies aside, it was a <more>
heartwarming story of loyalty, sacrifice, rising against all odds and true friendship that encompasses all nations and creeds that everyone will understand. It's a portrayal of what it means to truly be a friend and a man who sticks by his principles. Maybe that's why this film gets flack, because our standards today have become so dulled that it's now a sin to be a man and to act like a man. It seems sacrifice, loyalty and protecting the weak and innocent has been shelved aside in this rat race of ours in our modern world and has it praising selfishness, greed and ambition.In a feminized society like in the west, this might not be for you but those still encapsulating traditional and yes, masculine culture, it's truly a spectacle to see. Would watch again if a DVD copy came out.
It caught me by surprise! Not really a favorable film for critics but I did really enjoyed this film! That was really surprising. Romans, Chinese, Arabs, and Indians in this one historical epic. I mean how cool is that? I really thought this is just one of those straight to DVD kind of crap were Chan, Cusack and Brody is teaming up for an Chinese Historical Epic just for pure marketing type of sh*t. At first, OK I see JC doing his own thing making this epic into comedy or whatever, but then the tone gets too serious dramatically. I love films with good bonds and brotherhood. This is one of <more>
those films even with the most cheesiest screenplay and awkward moments, I still enjoyed watching it. And the fight scenes are very well choreographed with less shaky cams which is a good thing to me I hate shaky cams . Heard this is the most expensive film ever made in China, well I never doubt of that. I can see the high production value in this. And kill me but I love the performances on this one. Cusack is okay, I know he is a really good actor, but I was surprised how great Brody in here as a villain. He is really good in this film. And Chan, he still got it! I was thinking this is the best JC comeback film yet. Overall this is a great watch for all Jackie Chan fanatics and for everyone who loves action films and historical epics with great action sequences. The good thing is, I was not bored and the pacing keeps me into it. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with it, and a must watch guilty pleasure.
Except for some details, the movie is very entertaining. The story is fascinating. The battles are awesome. But the story could be told better. Jackie's story are usually coarse in some details. In this movie, for example, the pillars and tablets in the first few minutes from the ruins seem too new without much signs of age erosion. There also is much development of the feelings and mentalities. The Chinese writing on the letters and the monument can be more realistic if enough history study is done. The officer ranking seems not so correct. All in all, I think it is still a fantastic <more>
movie for the holiday and offers much to talk about.
First, I am a big fan of Jackie Chan. I love him very much but not very familiar about Brody and Cusack. But I loved their acting. I love the story of this movie. I you really have the passion for movies, you'll love this one. It's very entertaining made me smile on their working together to build the Wild Geese with the new guys and almost made me cry at some point. It was not disappointing like what some racist critics said. So sad I missed this one in theater because I'm not aware that it was showing already here. but overall i give this a 9.5/10 this movie is so great that I <more>
might be watching this three more times this week. Highly recommend this one.
Absolutely wonderful and refreshing film about War, Peace, Philosophy, Morals and so much more. (by angiris)
This kind of film truly reminds me why I enjoy Asian cinema. This take here...the mix of martial arts and Jackie Chan, Jet Li kind of sword play typical Chinese which as awesome , mixed cast from various nations to throw in so many nations and trifles in just 2 hours and actually not make it feel rushed nor boring at ANY time whatsoever. Now that is something I find truly impressive and extremely refreshing. Jackie Chan as this peaceful and helpful man who seeks to create peace and assist others. "Turn foes into friends" as the movie so eloquently states in the end. John Cusack as <more>
the Roman General on the run with the young brother of another roman general adrien Brody who's the bad guy here which he does a wonderful job portraying Various other people ending up to join the fray of power, greed, jealousy and so much more. It's all great, people! It's great entertainment and it keeps you interested and captivated through each step of the film. It makes you pumped up during the fight sequences which are very well done, effects, costumes and basically the visuals of this are astounding. Its a beautiful and yet raw looking film. Gritty...which really allows you to immersive yourself into this epic...and I stress that word...EPIC film. I personally see this as a definitive 8 out of 10. Its more than good. Its more than great. It's in my opinion flat out fantastic and most of all so because it has GREAT replay value. Its entertaining, captivating, got great action, ambitious and passionate story, great cast and it is filmed very very well.Definitely worth a watch AT LEAST once. Wonderful film. I'm very happy I decided to watch this one. There are so many big budget films nowadays that simply are so heavy and dragged out in their story telling and basically you'll watch it once...walk away without air in your lungs not because you're blown away...but because you are literally exhausted just watching the same...old...boring...cliché story. THIS... strays from all of that! And thus I'm rating it 8. Damn good film, people. Another thing is also you never get the weird feeling that Jackie Chan who's quite the comedy actor is here as the action hero. Quite the contrary he makes it work extremely well. Sure he has some funny scenes and he makes the action super good like you'd expect. But overall...he's doing damn good in this kind of film. Daniel Lee. Thank you so much for making this film. And thanks to all who helped and participated.
One of the best and yet underrated Jackie Chan film of this decade! (by www-afzala1)
I manage to watch this on an airplane while I was on my way to Qatar, anyways I was a bit worried of what the outcome might be e.g. Flops like tuxedo, the medallion and the spy next door, but it turns out that it was so brilliant guess the critics are wrong about this film. Here are some of my pros I manage to break down: *The most redeeming thingwas the fight scenes, as Jackie stated in behind the scenes promo he wanted the fight scenes to be realistic instead of a wuxia-type fight scene and he absolutely delivers it well, he's in his 60's so he's not a young lad anymore that <more>
can make fight scenes look fancy or perform stunts and tbh it fits well with his age, also it was great contrast with eastern vs western styles of fighting. *diverse location/cast-I was so surprised of how many groups were involved including Uighur, Huns, White Indians etc and also the Romans, also filmed in a beautiful desert and with no cgi what so ever. *Prop design-the scorpion sword attaching wrist rope to sword was pretty original and artistic at the same time, also the costume design was also artistic as well as it wasn't very typical .Here are my cons: *acting-it wasn't bad nor great, it was alright but could've done a bit better. *story dragging too long-my only complaint is when it tries to get into the action, there were some boring dialogue but nothing that puts me off from the film.Verdict: It was very interesting to see Adrien Brody to play the antagonist as he seemed to always play protagonists in previous roles. As for Jackie, he did say he wants to be a better actor so I think he should make film like this in the future minus the historical era lol.
Grand Scale, Lavish Production, Rich Narrative, Gorgeous Visuals – Truly Epic in Every Sense (by DareDevilKid)
Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid DDK Rating: 3.9/5 starsOne of the most expensive films ever produced in China, the historical action epic, "Dragon Blade", takes place during the Han Dynasty. The story centers on the commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions Jackie Chan , better known as the Silk Route Guard, who joins forces with Roman general Lucius John Cusack to protect China's sovereignty as power-crazed Tiberius Adrien Brody seeks to defeat Lucius, deviously plot to usurp the throne of Rome, and also gain a major foothold on the Silk Road trade <more>
route."Dragon Blade" delivers on its promise of sprawling battle scenes, meticulously crafted sword fights, intriguing culture clashes, and budding bromances, where its giddily high concept and unlikely casting may so easily have seen it fail. It's an unparalleled meeting of Eastern and Western talent. A few of the portions serenading Roman and Chinese cultures, and their union do feel somewhat frothy and indulgent, but those are minor niggles in an otherwise fantastic period action film. Director-writer Daniel Lee's historical blockbuster is entertainment on a grand scale backed up by engaging performances from Chan, Cusack, and Brody.
