group of Chinese railroad workers secretly struggle against the
Japanese Imperial Army that has occupied their town and railroad
station. As the railroad is the life blood to bring supplies and
ammunition to the army, the workers have so called 'accidents' to
slow down the train and it's shipments. But when they get a chance
to destroy the train bridge, they will have to use all their wits and
skills to become unlikely heroes in Sheng Ding's Railroad Tigers
Yuan (Jackie Chan) and his men are simple railroad workers who are
forced work for the Japanese Imperial Army to load/unload their
supply trains, but secretly, they sabotage their supplies and steal
from them. Through quick wit, kung-fu and unorthodox methods they do
what they can, but at best they are only a minor irritation to the
Imperial Army. When a wounded soldier comes to them with a mission,
they have a chance to completely stop the Japanese supply train.
Without weapons and outnumbered they will have to use all their
tricks stop the army that protects and guards the train.
was another funny action filled Jackie Chan movie, set during WWI
with Chinese as they were occupied by the Japanese Army. While full
of action, both friends and enemy get into hilarious situations with
and against one another, but in the end, it is about the heroic
sacrifices of those in the war to help bring an end to the war.
1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image is an HD shoot that
looks really good and is very consistent throughout, more than
matched by the DTS: X 11.1 mix (the film was a Auro 11.1 theatrical
release) that often takes advantage of all the tracks available. The
anamorphically enhanced DVD is more on that soft side than it should
be, with the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix about as weak too. Extras
include Dangers of the Shooting, a Making If the film, VFX
featurette, the characters and trailers.
