Dexterous martial arts legend Jackie Chan reaches his 100th film milestone with this historical drama set in the year 1911, as the Chinese public begins to revolt against the Qing Dynasty that has ruled the country for 250 years. As the child emperor takes the throne and his mother, Empress Dowager Longyu (Joan Chen), clings to power, famine sweeps the land and warring factions clash in battle. Meanwhile, the "New Army" beings targeting rebels and the desperate leaders of the Qing Dynasty begin putting the country's future at risk through rampant trading with foreign countries. When Huang Xing (Jackie Chan) returns home from studying modern warfare in Japan, he finds his homeland consumed by strife. Realizing that the only hope for the future is for China to take up arms and topple the Qing Dynasty, Huang enters into an epic battle that threatens devastating consequences for the common people. Bing Bing Lee, Jaycee Chan, and Winston Chao co-star.

This film is made more for two audiences: a Chinese audience in order to connect them to a cultural history that many of them may not be very familiar with; and an audience who enjoys historical epics/ war dramas. It’s not for the typical Jackie fan. For what it is (not for what I wanted it to be) it should probably earn 4 stars. My actual enjoyment of it would place it at 2 stars (and my wife, who loves some Chantastic magic too, wouldn’t finish watching it).
