Despite what the critics say I really enjoyed this film. It's not super deep or loaded with thoughtful multi-layered dialogue but it wasn't designed to be like that. It was made to be a fresh, slick, enjoyable film where the good guys win the day. And sometimes that is OK! I've had my fill of movies that leave you empty at the end because they killed off the main character or put too many violent scenes in it. This is the sort of film you can watch, after having a bad day at the office, sit back, enjoy listen to the funky music and enjoy the good hearted characters succeed on <more>
their mission. And to be honest, I think Orlando's hair looks pretty cool dyed blond! More films like this please :
Orlando Bloom in Shanghai, one of my favourite actors in my home city. What's not to like? The plot actually. A little dull to care. Other than that, everything else very decent.👍
Well worth a watch. (by zoiee)
The Shanghai Job didn't drag out and start slow. Within the first 5 minute there was an edge of your seat scene that hooks you into the story line. Yes there are subtitles but it doesn't detract from the film in the least. Anyone who enjoys a good action movie is willing to read a few lines of script. There are also a few good laughs throughout as well. Orlando did a great job and his stunt skills have only improved over the years. It's well worth a watch.
