An attempt to imitate Indiana Jones unfortunately failed. Also in this case (as in Jiu ceng yao ta), the cues are many but instead of enriching the plot they end up complicating the development. On the other hand in some moments the thread of the narration is lost, everything becomes possible but without any connection or logic, the flashbacks sometimes seem put a little at random, more for narrative needs than for concrete reasons of development. It's a pity because it is a product that for the West really introduces so many new narrative inventions and possible paths never crossed but it all translates into a terrible mess.

A terrible messReviewed bydircpittVote: 5/10
I actually created an IMDb account just to write this short review.This movie is terrible. Not only does it make absolutely no sense,there isn't one character who is even remotely likable. The maincharacters fight and work at cross purposes for no apparent reason. Themotivations for characters are unclear. I was hoping this movie wasgoing to end with every character dying and an on-screen apology fromthe production company. Sadly, I was disappointed again. Avoid thisfilm if you are planning on following dialogue or enjoying a plot. Ifyou want to see some stuff explode and some sub-par comic relief, byall means watch.
In all fairness, it is a far better production than I've seen manytimes, a good plot, good actors, script, director, overall, a movie toentertain, maybe even to recommend.
I must say, a lot of the lines were quite funny, they got me laughing,and not just one or twice. Visually, it is beautiful, peaceful andcalming effects, that got you focused only on them when they were on,good use of CGI, plenty of Asian culture references, a little of theAmerican view towards it too. I had fun watching it, the end is asalways over stretched but lucky for me, I got used to it by now.
I graded it 6 stars out of 10, it succeeded on many levels, but therewas room for better.
