Railroad Tigers

It’s been years since I’ve watched a Jackie Chan movie (I think the last one was his Karate Kid movie), and I hadn’t heard anything about Railroad Tigers (that came out last year), but it popped up on Netflix and I decided to give it a try. I ended up enjoying this. I liked the setting — Japan occupied China (although it always feels a bit weird seeing Japan as villains) with the same actor who played the villain in the first Ip Man movie playing a similar role here — and it was kinda fun seeing Jackie’s son in this. Nothing amazing or groundbreaking, just a good old fashioned HK movie ride. Oh, and the best part of the movie is still the bloopers reel at the end.
