The action isn't nearly sufficient to carry all the mumbo-jumbo, and the cast doesn't have enough charisma to keep the script afloat on their own.
Audience Reviews for Jade Warrior
I watched this on Netflix streaming, and I have to express my great appreciation for Netflix here for enabling me to view a Finnish movie and moreover one that combines Finnish myth and Chinese martial arts. While not a great movie, I thought it was entertaining and, considering its tiny budget, three and a half million dollars, a rather amazing one with a decent story and good acting. If, like me, you're a fan of martial arts movies, believe a country's cinema reflects its popular psyche and are curious about the worldviews of others, you might want to give this one a viewing.
Jade Warrior plays on many a mans fantasy of finding and falling in love with a beautiful Asian woman(Jingchu Zhang looks AMAZING in this film) who happens to be a Kung Fu master. That concept was diluted by bringing in a parallel story, from the present time period, that was hard to connect with. The fight scenes looked excellent considering this movie was supposedly made with only 3.5 million. But they were not enough to save Jade Warrior from it's bland characters.
