An old soldier (Jackie Chan) takes prisoner a young general (Wang Leehom) who fought for an opposing state–in vain, however, since almost the entire army has fallen in battle. The soldier plans to take the general back to his homeland to collect the customary reward.
Part Bruce Lee, part Charlie Chaplin, Jackie Chan has been delighting us for years. But if you only know his Hollywood work, you’re missing out—he’s kept plenty busy at home. This twist on the action epic is a joy, laced with slapstick combat and capped with surprisingly tragic heft.
