Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi) (2015)



Critic Consensus: Dragon Blade is beautifully staged and choreographed, but between the battles, its talented cast is overwhelmed by a dull story and choppy editing.

Critic Reviews for Dragon Blade (Tian jiang xiong shi)

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (20)

Handsome production design and sweeping battle vistas lend a touch of class, with Chan directing the action scenes with trademark brio.

There are nice moments, but this is pure bombast, and Chan's natural action flair is not given free rein.

January 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

For those who ever wondered what it would be like to see John Cusack and Jackie Chan engage in a swordfight (both of you), here is "Dragon Blade."

September 4, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Just about everyone seems to get slashed, carved up or skewered, and vengeance rains down upon all. Except, of course, the one villain who truly deserved it. The filmmaker.

September 4, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

In Dragon Blade, East meets West in a murky, mediocre muddle.

September 4, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's kind of a mess. That more than 20 minutes have been trimmed for the stateside release may have hurt the film's coherence, but viewers will be thankful for the shorter sit.
