This recent Chan film takes place both in a familiar modern day setting, with Chan's usually acrobatic prop using fight style, and in a mystical past reminiscent Zhang Zimous films (Hero, House of Flying Daggers). The towo plots interplay with some skillfully done visual transitions. Its the modern setting that most reminds me of Chans heyday, a short battle in a tomb could be straight out of the Armour of God films, and a glue factory battle which is pretty clever. The fun of these parts dont fit too well with the legendary epic feel of the ancient scenes, but these show a glimpse of Chans acting potential. The feel is of two halfs of different movies unfortunately. These too styles come together fairly vaguely at the climax, in an enjoyable film that you should like if youre expectations are not too massive. Its far better than the Medallion and Ruch Hour 3, I rate it at about Forbidden Kingdom.

The DVD is pretty good and cine asia has the look of quality seen in the incredible and sadly defunct Hong Kong Legends products. My major gripe is that the film is in Chinese but with a fairly hefty chunk of English, one good ten minutes sectipn at least, and the DVD subtitles the English rather than being blank during these parts. I found this highly distracting and a little sloppy in the DVD makers part.

When i first heard about this, i was expecting an alright movie, but what i saw was a great movie complete with great stunt work. Movie is worth seeing for both the glue scene and the fight scenes at the end.

The extras at the end include the music video(s) to the movie, one of them is in Cantonese and the other is the "International" version which is the version of the song that is used in the movie.

This movie is well worth seeing.

OK. What is so good about it? I like Chinese films. I grew up in the 60s in the era of Bruce Lee. So I like Chinese. Now JC makes films that are immeasurably superior to the movie making of those Golden harvest films. Although BL remains the finest Chinese martial artist that I know of within living or historical memory.
This film is EPIC. Its on the scale of Dances with Wolves. Some abs terrific Landscapes. In terms of numbers employed in the war scenes its almost on the scale of Cecil B. De Mille. Actual EXTRAS playing soldiers, not CGI. Probably about a couple of thousand in India and the same in China. But the CGI where its used is impressive. The film makers got permission to film actually inside the site of the Terracotta Army. Itself impressive. The stunts are really good. The fight scenes are good. The English subs are very well done. I wouldn't dream of watching a Chinese film dubbed - that to my mind would be culturally insulting. I love the original languages (Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, and an Indian language) with subs.
JC is his usual wonderful humourous, slapstick self. he is a Great Entertainer. Yet on the ‘Behind the scenes’ you see him as Director but also doing menial chores. I like the guy a lot.
The story itself is slightly convoluted. I'll have to watch it twice to get it all. But for me that's the enjoyment of foreign movies; the more you watch them you more you learn. At my age (60) its more important to enjoy, understand and be well entertained by the story than just to watch 'action, chop-sockey with bad American English dubbing'.
Both this and Little Big Soldier are Chinese stories based on Chinese history. So they are told and acted differently his more westernised offerings. I enjoy them both.

As a fan of Jackie Chan from his early classics ( Snake in Eagles Shadow and Drunken Master ) through some of his more lamentable attempts ( The Tuxedo and The Medallion ) i can say that this film is up there with some of his best work. The story jumps from ancient times to the present as Jackie's character is an archaeologist in the present but a great General in a past life and tells the tale of a love across the ages. No i am not going soft in my old age but this is a great film, subtitles aside, some of the action from the Qin Dynasty is outstanding and although the present day part of the story is a bit hard to follow the fight scenes from ancient china are superb. A must see film for any Jackie Chan enthusiast.

Worth seeing the movie just even for the rat glue factory scene. It's a wonderful Jackie Chan physical comedy combined with a really nice striptease from the super hot Indian actress, Mallika Sherawat. Sure to become a classic scene.

The rest of the movie constitutes of a historical "Hero" like war martial art action with some modern Jackie Chan slapstick. The plot is very tenuous and was probably written after someone wanted a story with Chinese history combined with a modern drive towards the nascent Chinese scientific and technological resurgence.

Jackie Chan plays an Indiana Jones like archaeologist which spirals into a Lara Croft style adventure of finding very strange but mindbogglingly powerful things. Meanwhile a very hazy parallel story runs of a concubine who falls for a general played by Jackie Chan a few hundreds years in the past. There is anti-gravity devices and immortality pills thrown in as well.

Though it does get really cheesy and maudlin at times, it's a really fun movie to watch.
