Amnesia (2015/Jackie Chan Presents/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B Extras: D Film: C+

A bike courier, Li Zwei, finds himself framed for murder and with facial amnesia, the only clue he has was the package he was delivering. Joined by a spunky female hitchhiker Tong Xin, Li must not only give her a ride, deliver the package, solve the murder case and clear his name in Yinxi Song's Amnesia (2015).

Li Zwei is actually an ordinary biker courier, that was until he stepped into a murder scene and he realized his package contained the critical information that two assassins wanted. After barely escaping and being injured he ends up with a facial amnesia, he could no long recognize people's faces. He (unwillingly) picks up a hitchhiker Tong Xin and together they end up going on a cross country chase (with two assassins hot on their tails) in order deliver the package. Li and Tong just wants to deliver and get rid of the package (and each other), but when they discover a child's life is at stake they must protect the package at all cost in order to save the child's life.

This was an action filled movie filled with drama and a dash of comedy. You could really feel Jackie Chan's influence in making this movie, a rogue with a heart of gold and a bit comical action/drama/romance thrown into the mix. It felt like Jackie Chan was getting back to his roots in entertainment industry, either he is looking for the next Asian superstar or he was helping young actors and actresses make a break into Hollywood.

The anamorphically enhanced image is softer than one would like, but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is surprisingly active and effective. Extras include trailers.
