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.

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!

I am a huge fan for anything that has to do with treasure hunting- Indiana Jones, Fools Gold, National Treasure, you get the idea. I was so excited to get this movie I could not wait. It is a good movie- just not what I thought it would be. The action is not fantastic and there are lags in the movie that make it hard to keep focused. That being said it wasn't terrible and I will definitely be watching it again but it was not the action packed treasure hunting movie I like to normally add to my collection.

Jay Chou is a talented, chart-topping singer/musician from Taiwan.

Known in America for his role as Kato in the 2011 film "The Green Hornet", most of Jay Chou's previous films were films that I guess many people can call them "growth" films. A musician turned actor who grows with each film. Beginning with his starring role in "Initial D", starring with two powerhouse talent in "Curse of the Golden Flower" with Chow Yun Fat and Gong Li but to create more "growth" films with "Kung Fu Dunk" (2008), followed by "The Treasure Hunter" (2009).

And now, "The Treasure Hunter" receives its Blu-ray and DVD release in America courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment.

VIDEO:

"The Treasure Hunter" is presented in 1080p High Definition (2:35:1). The picture quality is quite warm and sports plenty of detail during the daytime, cooler colors during the night time. Detail is very well-done as we can see the detail around the treasure relics, to the detail of the cool special effects featured in the film. Black levels are deep and overall, picture quality for the film is very good.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"The Treasure Hunter" is presented in Dolby TrueHD 2.0 Mandarin and English. I was surprised that this film was only a 2.0 mix but for the most part, the front channels definitely get a lot of work in showcasing the many sound effects during the intense action sequences of the film. From windstorms, to shrieks by possessed characters and more!

It's important to note that I did not listen to the English dub track as I prefer to watch Asian films in their original language.

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.
