BLEEDING STEEL (Theater Release China 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Bleeding Steel, despite great concepts like mechanical hearts and biogenetic blood, suffers from subpar acting and amateurish special effects. The movie fails to match the high quality that other Jackie Chan films (Drunken Masters, Police Story 4: First Strike, Shanghai Noon, Shanghai Knights, the Rush Hour series, and the remake of the Karate Kid) have.

Storyline

A special agent believes his daughter has died while he was fighting crime, but discovers that someone resurrected her by implanting a mechanical heart and replacing her blood with biogenetic blood.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Leo Zhang for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Jackie Chan, Ellen Eliasoph, Alex Guan, Alee Li, Kailuo Liu, Rong Liu, Jason Sun, Bozhao Wang, Peng Wang, Ziquan Xu, Weidong Yang, Da Ying, and John Zeng for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Lin Dong (Jackie Chan), Leeson (Show Lo), Nancy (Na-Na OuYang), Susan (Erica Xia-Hou), Andre (Callan Mulvey), Woman in Black (Tess Haubrich), Dr. James (Kim Gyngell), Rick Rogers (Damien Garvey), and Dr. Wu (Bowie Lam).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s always wonderful to see Jackie Chan onscreen, but Rumble in the Bronx is a much better choice for your time and money than this film.
