Movie Review of Dragon Blade 天将雄师

Fancy an action packed movie that have to do with war and has some historical significance to it? Then you should check out Dragon Blade. Here's the trailer:

Cast: Jackie Chan, Adrien Brody, John Cusack and Choi Siwon 
Director: Daniel Lee
Release Date: 19/2/2015
Running Time: 127 minutes

The main cast of Dragon Blade were here in Singapore to attend the gala premiere and for movie promotion activities. The cast included Jackie Chan, John Cusack, Adrien Brody, Choi Siwon, Lin Peng and Wang Ruo Xin. Word has it that they were flown over in Jackie Chan's private planes.

Thanks to Hong Peng, I was able to catch them live in person at the cinema.

One of the cast who everyone can't wait to see, Choi Siwon. As handsome as ever.


That's Huo An (Jackie Chan) and his team, the Silk Road Protection Squad

When Jackie Chan introduced his movie, he explained how there were many challenges faced in the filming, especially that of getting the Caucasian children (cast) to cooperate. I can imagine the language barriers and the difficulty faced as I have been involved in filming before. I asked myself why did he choose such a setting then? 明知道不容易,何必自找麻烦?

As I watched the plot unveil in front of me, I understood why. It had to do with the geographical location of the Silk Road. The storyline was a very heartwarming one that involved the aspiration of Huo An and how he wanted to maintain the peace between 36 warring nations. In some ways he reminded me of a self sacrificial person who placed the importance of his ideology before his life. To him, power, authority and riches were not important but unfortunately for him, others valued all the above highly. 

The movie has the typical traits of a Jackie Chan movie. You can expect all the action, the dodging and funny movements that Jackie Chan is well known for. It will definitely be a good watch, expect nothing but the best, be it the visuals, the music or the action. If there is something more about this one, you can expect yourself to feel involved in the show as it reaches out to your emotions. The beauty of harmony and teamwork is one that is understated and never ceases to amaze. Watch it, you have to!
