DRAGON BLADE (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Stars

Dragon Blade—Jackie Chan movie—is a good film with good presentation and good acting, but what shines here is the story. The fight scenes are good to suitable and then get kind of impressive as the movie moves along toward the middle and concluding scenes. Jackie Chan plays a more hardened, seasoned, and serious character in his role of a Chinese military officer protecting the Silk Road. It is interesting to see John Cusack as a Roman military officer This movie has English mixed with Mandrin Chinese and has incorporated great English subtitles for the Mandarin Chinese dialogue.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a historical film and should be watched for that reason. It is a little snippet of Chinese history and Roman history that needs to be brought to the forefront of understanding of Rome’s involvement in international affairs.
