It was surprisingly watchable. It could have been a great movie if the final act was thought out better, but it starts to fall apart towards the end as sense leaves the building and silliness takes over. It was funny, entertaining, with good action until midway through the final forest fight and then the film just goes a bit mental and it is hard to stay on board.
This film is a mess. It varies in quality between B Movie and top notch effects, as if several scenes were tacked on at the end of filming when the budget was spent. The director attempts to distract the viewer from the absence of any sense of realism in the strategy of the action by making it as chaotic as possible, with the only pauses in the action inserted almost nonsensically in order to throw a bit of dramatic acting in the mix. The scenes change so rapidly that it can be confusing to follow just whom is supposed to be where or what the dangers are, and at times it becomes a Call of Duty simulation as the main antagonists put James Bond to shame in terms of their ability to avoid bullets... until it's time to wrap up the plot in which case all of a sudden the stubborn Chinese soldiers become human again.
It feels like a film that started out with a big budget and high expectations but then was pushed out to salvage whatever funds were thrown at it. It feels like it needs another few months on the cutting room floor.
there's a potentially good film hiding in this mess, but it is very well hidden. The lead actor does a good enough job with what she is given but the script is dreadful and the effects are occasionally good but more often high school project in quality.
