Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.19.15] China action drama adventure

You can't make this shit up. You just can't.

The latest bit of weirdness: Dragon Blade; a Chinese produced enormous action epic starring Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody.

It actually doesn't sound terrible. It's the story of a group of lost Roman soldiers who have wondered into China and need to find their way home. It just looks bad.

It's like a Uwe Boll directed period epic with a ginormous budget. It looks terrible and I can only reason that Cusack and Brody took the job because the money was too good to pass up. I guess at this point, the pair are past caring about their careers. As for Chan, he's also listed as a producer so he has vested interest. Plus, his career has weathered worse.

Dragon Blade has already opened in China and a number of other Asian. It opens in North America September 4.

Recommended Release: Drunken Master

I must admit that's surprising. Wasn't expecting much from this based on the trailer.

Lost, huh? Even the Romans knew how to determine direction. Don't keep heading East, you morons!
