Ringo Lam returns to his roots with a rehash of elements from '80s Hong Kong action cinema.

The worst kind of bad action movie: the kind that half-assedly purports to be uplifting, but is actually only convincing when it's about explosions, car chases, and amorally spectacular violence.

This is a Hong Kong action picture in the classical mode, balancing mayhem with sentimentality, offering up bone-crunching and jaw-dropping set pieces, and pulling out all the stops ...

"Sky on Fire" is certainly an adrenaline dose, but hardly a remedy for the action blahs.

From any random filmmaker, this movie would be barely worth mentioning. It's fine, it's mostly painless, it would immediately depart from the memory. But from Ringo Lam, it's a crushing disappointment.

... would seem to suggest a return to that style of action but this is bigger, more lavish, a mix of action movie and conspiracy thriller with CGI expanding his scope, and not always to the benefit of his strengths.
