While action legend Jackie Chan's career continues to wane in the United States, he has in recent years enjoyed a revival in his native Hong Kong, and the period-action comedy Little Big Soldier is perhaps the best of those efforts. Set during China's Era of Warring States (roughly 475-221 BC), the story centers on Chan as a farmer-turned-soldier who survives a bloody battle with a valuable prize--a wounded general (Wang Leehom) from the opposing army. The personality clash between the savvy, scrappy Chan and Wang's initially aloof warrior makes for some amusing comic moments before the pair are forced to bond in order to save each other's lives; what follows is a traditional buddy/road comedy, enlivened by the chemistry between the leads and a handful of fight sequences that show Chan still nimble and physically adept after three decades of martial arts movies, most notably in a sequence where Chan brawls while using only one leg. Director Ding Sheng's eye for period detail and grime is also a plus, but the key appeal to Little Big Soldier is seeing an invigorated Chan in his classic underdog role and clearly enjoying the opportunity to bring this long-gestating personal project to life. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack includes the film's domestic and international trailers, as well as a standard-issue behind-the-scenes featurette and a music video featuring Chan in a recording studio. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Set during China s war period, Little Big Soldier is the story of a soldier (Jackie Chan) and a general (Wang Leehom) who come from opposing states and also have very much opposing views on the war and the world. Jackie Chan in one of his finest performances plays a soldier from Liang, who ultimately survives the war by playing dead. Lee Hom Wang plays a general from Wei, who is wounded fighting for his country. A painful yet comical journey commences when the soldier decides to kidnap the general and bring him back to his state in the high hopes of collecting a reward. When the unlikely duo is confronted by danger, they quickly learn that they must join forces in order to survive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Film! June 9, 2010
Format:DVD Audio
I caught this film just last night at a local film festival and had to go online to see when the blu-ray would be available. Alas, it isn't available yet, but I will be the first in line to buy it when it is available. This was a fantastic movie overall and, in my opinion, one of Jackie Chan's best. I'd rate this up there with Drunken Master and for a recent Hong Kong film I'd say it was better than Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, but not quite as good as Hero. Jackie Chan's physical comedy is perhaps the best in the business and is definitely showcased here, but there are so many more layers to this film. The story line is fantastic and the cinematography is top notch. My two cents is that this is a must-see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jackie Gem! August 22, 2011
By Dee J.
Format:DVD
After watching a portion of an earlier version of this film with NO subtitles and no dubbing, I ordered this new DVD version which DOES have the English dub audio, but will probably listen to the Chinese with the English subtitles, admittedly.

Jackie may be getting older, but shows no slowing down in his directing, acting and comic relief! I highly recommend "Little Big Soldier" to everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching March 30, 2012
Format:DVD
Far from playing the clown and other trade mark antic , this Jackie Chan film is acually touching , and ends on a melancholic existentialist human condition sequence not unlike Kurosawa's endings

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie. March 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Others will review this deeper so I'll keep mine short. Some people used to nonstop Chan action and comedy throughout and up to the end credits may be a little taken aback by this film (which is why I gave it four instead of five stars) but if you look at the ending bringing a resolution to the early charge of disgrace regarding Chan's character, the ending makes sense. The two leads work fantastic against and with one another. As I am only acquainted with Chan's previous work, I will write this is the best acting I've seen from him. There's none of Crime Story's solemness and none of the (for a better word) mugging of Chan's early comedies (though I also love that Chan as well). Add to that an excellent script, fantastic cinematography and music and this movie is a winner. Comparing this with Chan's last American movie "The Spy Next Door" is like night and day. I wish THIS movie would have gotten a wide theatrical release in the States. It surely deserves it.

I've seen most of Chan's ouvre and, as I was watching this enjoyable little film, I kept thinking to myself, "Wow, a JC film that feels modern." Of course Chan has other films that "feel modern", like some of his recent American fare, but even those play for wide audiences and are conventional. "Little Big Soldier" feels more like a major Hong Kong release that appeals to regular joes and an artier crowd; think "Hero" or "The House of Flying Daggers" only far less dramatic and with far less fanfare. The story, while fairly conventional, employs some storytelling touches that are more prevalent in modern films (the surprise situations that come about only because the main character is dreaming; the red-herrings that set you up to believe the story is about to go one way or will head one way only to go the other; the seemingly upside-down ending). The shooting locales and the visuals (while rarely expansive) are all stunning and expertly filmed. All of these things elevate "Little Big Soldier" and make it more than it probably ought to be. The movie is about Jackie Chan's seemingly deserting soldier who is not about being a soldier at all but about being a survivor. This is actually quite deceptive because Chan's soldier, while unorthodox, is a man of his army through-and-through but he is imbued with a mind of his own and a trickster spirit. The movie focuses heavily on Chan's character who ends up catching the general from the opposing army and he takes him, despite much trial and tribulation, back to his city. This movie is supposedly set at a time in China's history when there were several ruling (and warring) dynasties. It is about one man's take on life and how he passes this along to another, but both soldiers have some things to learn from each other. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Big Soldier October 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I still remember a time, not long ago, when Jackie Chan was the flavor-of-the-month in Hollywood. He was hot, and it seemed that he was going stay that way for a while. But his popularity, for many reasons, began to decrease in the USA, and his movies did not succeed as before. It doesn't matter, though: Jackie Chan is a marketable star all over the world and he keeps doing quite entertaining films, the majestic and absorbing "Little Big Soldier" being the latest, an effort that should not be missed.

The film is very ambitious, with an impressive production design. It is a period piece set when China was divided into several states fighting with each other, some looking for an eventual unification. It was at one of these battles between two different states, that we meet the soldier (Jackie Chan), the sole Liang survivor between hundreds that fought a battle between the Wei and the Liang. He is not alone: among the Wei, he finds out that The General (Leehom Wang) is still alive, although badly wounded. The Soldier "captures" the General, and takes care of him, eventually curing him. He is planning to take his prisoner to the Liang State as some sort of valuable trophy of war. However, the soldier is not the only one that values the General. They are followed by a little, strong group led by Prince Wen (Steve Yoo). In addition, on the way to Liang, the soldier and the general will face and fight with bandits and others, including a treacherous, beautiful woman.

"Little Big Soldier" is about an important period in Chinese history, when brothers were fighting brothers, apparently for the same reason. Jackie Chan plays a serious role, but being, well, the funny and acrobatic Jackie Chan that we know. He plays a simple and honorable peasant that had to go to war.
