Editorial Reviews

Fans of The Mummy need hunt no further for edge-of-your-seat thrills! Hong Kong Film Award winners, Jay Chou (The Green Hornet) and Eric Tsang, star in this blazing adventure packed with action and stunning special effects.

Qiaofei (Jay Chou) is a relic expert with a gritty past. When his mentor’s daughter is held hostage over a map with a deadly history, the rugged warrior whips into action! Chaos erupts as he swoops in to the rescue and scours the sands for legendary riches buried deep in China’s northwest desert. Chased down by the shadowy Sandstorm Legion and challenged by countless greedy, bloodthirsty foes, Qiaofei faces danger at every turn to find the tomb—but some treasures aren’t meant to be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action packed treasure hunting - martial arts style! December 5, 2011
By H.H.X.
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
When it comes to action packed, big budget adventure movies, the things that really stick out are the things you see in the previews - action, adventure, peril, stunts, treasure! This movie has all of these and more.

The first thing I noticed when watching this Blu-Ray is that the picture was outstanding. Sharp, clean and the colors are great.

It opens with crazy martial arts action and special effects, which immediately hooked me. The stunts in the movie were great, and like other reviewers have stated it definitely has more than a hint of The Mummy trilogy. But, I didn't feel that is was ripping it off. Action and adventure flicks will always be compared to Indiana Jones and The Mummy because for this generation, those films really set the bar for blockbuster adventure. I didn't feel that this movie stole anything from either movie, just gave off the same fun vibe.

Yeah, the story was a teensy bit rocky, and I never felt "stressed" over the possible fate of any character (except Lan's father, he seemed nice!). Sometimes that is a bummer, but I don't like letting my sappy emotions take over in this kind of film. I just want fun!

The dialogue could have been a little better, but when translating Mandarin to English there is always the chance that some words will get muddled in the process. I take it with a grain of salt; I understood what was going on and that was good enough for me.

Basically - I can more than deal with minor plot and dialogue imperfections when it comes to watching a fun movie like this.

I also appreciate the fact that this isn't your typical Indy/Mummy type of adventure. It adds in the silliness that I love about Asian cinema and anime and mixes it well with the allure of treasure!

1.0 out of 5 stars Kiosk Rating <1 March 23, 2012
Format:DVD
A nothing creative ripoff of "The Scorpion King", "Indiana Jones", "Masters of the Universe" with Skeletor plastic masks for the bad people and horses. Badly fragmented storyline and editing where props and people suddenly appear on screen, out of the blue, as if the director forgot what he had just filmed. My favorite scene was the bad people on horseback trying to pull down a building by suddenly pulling a hundred feet of heavy steel chain and hooks out of their pockets. Most scenes made no sense such as the single dilapidated "Rango" style bar and inn located in the midst of a vast sand dune desert with telephone poles that go nowhere and with no road. A few moments later our heroes were in mountainous sheep grazing country and the back to the Sahara type desert. The English subtitle dialogue was so bad that what was being said made no sense relative to it's scene or in response to what someone else had said. Acting was robotic, martial art sword play was child like. The boringly usual wire suspended spinning kicks are just old, overused and were poorly executed in this case.

I'm a fan of Jay Chou & I like watching his movies. This is a great action adventure to watch. The chases are good & the fights are even better. I really liked this movie.
