AIR STRIKE * (Theatrical Release China 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Starsììì

Air Strike, not the usual high-quality film one expects from Bruce Willis, has air fights that are executed well. The individual scenes and/or combination of scenes are good, but the movie is difficult to follow. The continuity is not in place so that the viewer can connect the scenes. It makes major switches to other parts of the story so that confusion reigns as to how to connect one scene to another scene. The script needs to be re-written to make sense and give each character development so that an audience cares about what happens to the characters. Read a plotline before going to understand the film while viewing.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. This movie, despite its production in English, is not a good pick for a Chinese/Japanese war movie.
