[It] has quite a lot to recommend it. But it also has a few glaring flaws that detract from it being stellar action fare.
With its fanfare score, the movie has a nationalistic, didactic flavor and a tiresome devotion to spectacle. Even the climax is staged two ways.
Its slow-going opening stretch and assorted mawkish subplots might just be the price a viewer has to pay for the sight of Yang and Hawk slugging it out in a biplane as it careens down a seemingly endless escape tunnel ...
This lavish period piece contains enough thrills, spills and moments of cinematic grace that not only manage to push it through the rough spots but allow it to put most American action films of recent vintage to shame.
This account of the People's Liberation Army's strategic ambush of a bandits' lair delivers sinewy battles and twisty espionage with a husky northern flavor.
So when Tsui revises and redoes the climactic showdown for the sake of entertainment value, you wonder if the Hong Kong-based filmmaker writes off the whole thing as revisionist history written by victors.
The film never lingers too heavily, and for all the story contrivances Tsui manages to quite deftly balance his impulses. Moments of tension or fear dissipate into the spectacle, only to reemerge again.
It doesn't matter if said story is preposterous patriotic grandstanding-the film is a work of proud cultural myth-making. See it. And when you do, make sure it's in 3D.
In Tsui's hands, the communist propaganda classic becomes a handy platform to showcase his craftsmanship.
a thrill-packed adventure with soldiers on skis, murderous plot twists, precipitous zip-lining, and cut-throat mah jong
Tsui fulfills his primary goal here of making a classic newly relevant-not just to younger Chinese viewers, but to anyone who likes action.
In an ironic twist worthy of an opera, the very same young people who are being criticized are the ones who have bought the tickets that made this film a hit.
