Critic Reviews for Little Big Soldier

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (3)

  • There is epic action and adventure in this film, to be sure, and some humour too - but it is all directed towards a conclusion whose devastating impact is not even undone by the touches of mawkishness that get us there.

    November 2, 2010
  • A better screenplay, tougher editing and less commercial direction might have made the tale more substantial and even funnier -- as it is, Chan keeps it all going.

  • Jackie Chan has made plenty of cracking films in his native tongue, but Little Big Soldier, a rambunctiously tragicomic martial epic set during China's Warring States period, is regrettably not one of them.

  • Now 56, having broken pretty much every bone in his body, [Chan] sits out some of the rough stuff, and there is a noticeable twilight mood in the air.

  • Genre-benders who like their Leone-esque historical slapstick buddy-action epics with a side order of political tragedy will find much to enjoy here.

Audience Reviews for Little Big Soldier

    Excellent. This is Chan's best work. Epic adventure, spectacular fights, some humor that seems natural, an unexpected ending. I loved it.

    A typical Jackie Chan film, but set in ancient China. Little Big Soldier is a buddy martial arts comedy that is interesting and well written.

    A cowardly conscript kidnaps the general of an opposing army and attempts the long journey back to his homeland to claim a reward and leave the life soldiering behind. Little Big Soldier is one of those "two characters from each end of the social spectrum learn life lessons from one another" type films and is essentially a martial arts road movie containing Jackie Chan's usual blend of high kicking Kung Fu and slapstick comedy. It's a little more serious than most and spends a little too long in places staring at its own navel although some quality fight sequences embellished by attractive photography and production design stave off boredom for the most part. Unfortunately its meandering script is both contrived and uneven and the dialogue (at least the English translation anyway) is stilted and clumsy. Chan is always watchable but the anti-war message the film seems so desperate to convey is unfocussed and the comic relief just doesn't work. As a whole Little Big Soldier is very nice to look at but ultimately feels sloppy and lacking in the kind of narrative momentum required to maintain the interest.

    Comedic, fun, entertaining, and sad all at the same time. Very well done!!
