These shifts in tone could have been interesting if deliberately used to throw us off balance, but Sheng seems to be hoping we won't notice anything amiss.

With little to grab onto-and despite all that it offers-Railroad Tigers is far slower than a goofy action movie that mostly takes place on a locomotive should ever be.

Beyond Mr. Chan's deft work here, "Railroad Tigers," directed by Ding Sheng, is kind of a mess.

Instead of a grand lark of fast fists and derring-do, we get a lumbering, choppy voyage of minimal excitement.

It's only the first week of January, but it will be hard to beat Hong Kong director Ding Sheng's "Railroad Tigers" for the best opening credit sequence of the year.

It takes a special anti-talent to make a movie that's hard to follow out of material this broad.

These "Tigers" claw their way into a frivolous lather but whether or not Chan's latest spectacle deserves a boarding pass to enjoy the same blueprint thrills . . . well, hey . . . would you rather see the sequel "Skiptrace 2"? I rest my case . . .

This is a film that shovels a lot of coal and blows a lot more smoke but that doesn't mean it's comfy or worthwhile trip.

To be honest, I never really enjoyed movies with Jackie Chan, but this really won me over.

At times it's a blast but the rest of it is sustained largely by the power of Chan's charm and the grace of the clown prince of kung-fu comedy.

This is a movie that does not want you to think too much, lest you notice all its faults. It is a silly caper with the emphasis on action choreography and big set pieces -- which would be fine if the choreography and CGI were not so lacklustre.

The train heist scenes are carefully choreographed, no doubt to give Chan more leeway and CG boost, and the abundant use of explosives takes time away from real break-a-leg stunts.

Ding has taken one of the darkest chapter's in China's history and created an adventure story that will entertain viewers of all ages.

Chan is economical instead of eruptive, gracefully setting up gags and often sidestepping the frenetic movements of his co-stars (who include his son Jaycee).

While it's nice to see Jackie Chan return to his familiar role as the scrappy underdog hero, this incoherent action comedy doesn't provide much else besides nostalgic appeal for his fans.

Railroad Tigers is overflowing with absurd comedy. Slapstick and physical comedy take precedence over character development and a coherent story. Railroad Tigers is Jackie Chan's Monument's Men.

The movie is fatally glib in tone.
January 12, 2017
Railroad Tigers is an old-school, moderately campy adventure movie, something American directors were focused on making in the '90s (think 1995's Jumanji) but audiences have mostly relegated today to the realm of nostalgia.

[Jackie] Chan's familiar blend of action comedy is undercut by a persistent line in wince-inducing pro-China rhetoric.

Railroad Tigers is a treat.
