Après une première rencontre qui s'est soldée par un affrontement, il reçoit l'aide du soldat romain Lucius et de ses hommes de main qui semblent être sur la route de la soie. Their intertwined character relationship is a dud, explained with a fleeting backstory suffocated between chunky bouts of slow motion cinematography and bunched together flashbacks.

As eager to educate in the world of film as I am to learn. Chan stars as Huo An, the captain of the Silk Road Protection Squad, fictional do-gooders who patrol the transcontinental trade route at the behest of the Han Emperor.

Certain scenes are just stumps. Again it just isn't plausible or the story as it is told is just really poorly done. What's left is decent enough to recommend to regular movie audiences and even disillusioned Jackie Chan fans. Night sequences are blasted with deep blues, a relief from the rest. Choppy storytelling does match the pitiful performances of its named cast, if nothing else.

Given the fact that the Han Prefecture Chief has decreed that the gate must be completed under penalty of death, it's weird that everyone takes a break for the ancient China version of karaoke, but it's all good. Between grunting and sweating, the men spar, sing and do other manly and totally not homoerotic things. English speaking bit parts are worse still. There is a grand attempt to impress. The first General with troops from various walks of life.
Reds, golds and the like feel boldened and full. Witnessing his parents murder and accidentally killing his sister started a domino effect that set this characters life in motion to become the Hero of this war. Nothing is ever fully explained. Surround Sound Presentation : Rear speakers mainly promote ambiance, but there are some moments where its allowed its own contributions. Blooming is employed to accentuate brightness.
