Too much slapstick and too little character work turns this celebration of wartime heroism into a farcical war comedy - and renders Jackie Chan largely inconsequential
 

If you've seen 'Little Big Soldier' or 'Police Story 2013', you'll know better than to expect Jackie Chan's third collaboration with Mainland filmmaker Ding Sheng to be a martial arts showcase of the former's acrobatic stunts. And sure enough, despite being billed as 'a Jackie Chan action-comedy blockbuster', 'Railroad Tigers' is really an ensemble piece set against the backdrop of the Japanese invasion of East China in the early 1940s. Based upon true events, Chan plays a humble railroad worker named Ma Yuan who leads a ragtag team from his village to blow up a critical transportation route across the Hanzhuang bridge for the Japanese to send supplies to their troops at the frontlines. ..

Prepare to be disappointed if you expect action and comedy
 

First of all, this is just a china propaganda movie. They want to "educate" viewers some battle fought by the communist Eighth Route Army (八路军) on a fictional bridge. The plot is rather empty and no reason was given why that bridge has to be destroyed... (maybe i missed it in the dialog but it should be trivial for the war). Next is how they portray the Japanese soldiers. All of them act without much intellect, and this make the movie one-sided and extremely boring for a action movie. Not much for comedy part, maybe the cowardice of the Japaneses might capture a few laugh....

Patriotic and Funny
 

I went to see RAILROAD TIGERS because Jackie Chan is in it... and found a nice mix of comedy and drama as an inept group of railroad thieves during the Second World War discovered they were Chinese first and out for themselves second. I have been watching a goodly number of Chinese movies in the theaters over the last few years and have been impressed by the manner in which those movies mix and match elements from genres that, for more other national cinemas, seem impossible; a movie might start as a Noir caper, turn into a coming-of-age romance and mutate into a time-travel story. So, looking at RAILROAD TIGERS, I don't see much stretching. Service comedies began to penetrate the cinema with WHAT PRICE GLORY? in the 1920s; comedies in which thieves and con men discover a love of country so fierce that they are willing to die for it were handled well n the 1940s with MR. LUCKY; so this movie, which starts off as slapstick and ends in a desperate, deadly battle, is neither disrespectful nor unprecedented. It is simply well done, thanks to Mr. Chan and and a cast and crew that includes a fine performance by Kai Wang as the former warlord's soldier who finds his commitment to China in the face of Japanese oppression.
