Jackie Chan creates the migration-educational genre?Reviewed bylaszlo-05700Vote: 7/10

As a child I grew up watching tons of Jackie Chan movies, which very much made my generation addicted to his kind of karate. We liked Bruce Lee for sure - but he was often too serious for us Western kids. His martial arts movies were really "art", whilst Jackie Chan just made fun of everything - he was the perfect entertainer for child and adult alike.

Now as an "old" man he not just plays a rather passive (compared to his former roles) main character, but also does it seriously. And honestly his work just blew my mind. I hope I won't spoiler anything, but while he may not do any funny karate moves, there are enormous amount of razor sharp blades, blood and raw violence. Yet, the story is centered around one of the biggest social problems of our days: migration. Migration brings happiness, fear, success, illegal jobs, family reunion, crime and organized crime. And Jackie Chan is no shy man to show both the bright and dark side of this topic. However, at some points the direction insterted parts of the script as rather silly sounding conversations, which might seem even more comic to those not familiar with Asian culture. In these scenes the movie wants to draw some moral or ethical conclusion out of what the characters have done so far. It is a bit pointless unless the goal was to educate the viewers about what a Chineese immigrant can do in Japan - which actually pretty much makes sense in this context. But it interrupts the movie's rhytm so heavily, that it's like an intermission cut in from some low score movie. Still, I'm quiet sure Jackie and director Tung-Shing Yee had good intentions with these scenes (as with the whole movie), so I'm just noting it for those who might think it will be 2 hours of endless killing. No, it won't - sit down, it's the perfect opportunity to learn your lesson about migration's challenges and grow some emotional intelligence if you are only in for the missing body parts.

As for the actors - I'm proud of myself that I could always differentiate between Japanese and Chineese characters. Though I probably shouldn't be - it's likely the result of good casting and costume design. So a big thanks for the film crew for this - some of us just don't have the ability to tell the differences. Character development is also a strong point, couldn't really say there were "bad" roles - even minor actors did OK with Western standards, which is actually a bit of a surprise if you know how much the Chineese movies were about overreacting some years ago. So yeah - even though it has it's strange habits, Jackie Chan did not let his fans down. He just tried something different this time - but he excels just as well in this dark criminal movie, as in his own realm.

Its a great movieReviewed byshawnboyce-27089Vote: 7/10

HK Neo Reviews: Shinjuku IncidentReviewed bywebmaster-3017Vote: 6/10

Tagline: A trying effort from director Derek Yee that falls short of his usual flair?

Review by Neo: There is good news and bad news. The good news is that Shinjuku Incident is by no means a bad movie and the bad news is that, the film fails to continue director Derek Yee's run of great movies (i.e. Lost in Time, Protégé, 2 Young, One Nite in Mongkok). The real problem of this film is the unevenness, incoherent events and the relentless of lacking in acting chops of its two leads, namely the aging Jackie Chan and the emerging Daniel Wu. Wu have always been a wooden face, but he has tried to extend himself in Yee's films like Protégé and One Nite in Mongkok. Here, his character requires more range and like Jackie Chan, both are unable to deliver the goods. The pacing of the film is also a crucial problem, everything seems to be going along at a slow pace, then all of a sudden, things goes to a 360 degree turn around and when this includes sudden personalities changes for nearly all the main characters, the film is prime to become, more unbelievable than believable.

The movie goes like this: It's all about a group of Chinese illegal immigrant trying to survive and make a living in the country of Japan. The group includes our favourite stars, in Daniel Wu and Jackie Chan and together, they go through one obstacle after another. While Chan strikes luck and becomes associated with the Japanese Mafia, Wu gets his hand chopped off and his face disfigured in some local triad disputes. Then one day, Chan becomes the head of a gang.

I think I kind understand what Derek Yee is trying to say, is that all society, no matter how big and small, requires a certain amount of leadership or else it will collapse eventually. After-all, as William Golding used to say, it is human nature to be born selfish and the tendency to become evil or bad depends on the context that the person is living in. Sure, the Chinese Immigrants went to Japan, in seeking of a better life style, only to find them living within the tatters and shatters. When an opportunity do arises to possess so degree of power and wealth, their attitude to life changes, the things they do, the things they strive for and the desire for more power is evermore in existence.

Super icon Jackie Chan once claims that he wanted to become the next Robert De Niro and while you can say that Chan have been trying and trying to strive for more dramatic roles. It is already safe to claim that talent and persistence is two very different things. Chan have been an action star for a larger part of last four decades, his face is fixed, his experience of stunts is second to no one, but when it comes to drama, he lacks the presence, the facial expressions required and the body language that combines with the eyes to touch the audience. Chan have none of that ability and in turn, his role here is a true departure from his action grace, but he is unable to give his character any of this attributes that can one day make him, the next De Niro. It is a shame that Chan may not be able to achieve that lofty goal, or even the smooth transition fellow action superstar Jet Li have been able to make in the past 5 years. However, Chan shows guts and determination and most certainly cannot be blamed for not trying.

Moving on to Daniel Wu, there is no question that Wu have improved dramatically since his debut in a little over a decade ago. I thought he performed quite well in previous Derek Yee's endeavours like A Nite in Mongkok and Protégé, but in this film, Wu does not fit the character and when he is required to be menacing, he is simply not menacing enough. Buy me a lunch or whatever, Wu has plenty to work with in this well written character, but he simply fails to deliver the food to the table. However, Wu like Chan should be complimented for trying and I am not prepared to dismiss him for the future as yet. In other stories, Fan Bing Bing is stunning beaut in a flower glass role and did exactly as the role required. Likewise, the Japanese guy (played by Naoto Takenaka) shows some good presence, without adding layers to the film. As for Xu Jinglei of the Warlords fame, is adequate without standing out.

All in all, Shinjuku Incident is certainly a decent and above average Hong Kong thriller/drama, but when the best scene and most memorable scene remains, the chopping of Daniel Wu's hand. It is probably a matter of fact that there are numerous problem associated with the pacing and film-making approach. Yes, the film is uneven, and unemotional, but the blame cannot be totally allocated to the actors. It is ultimately a Derek Yee's film, a name where everyone who is associated to the Hong Kong industry has grown to know as quality. Therefore, anything, other than an 8/10 film is certainly a failure in the eyes of Hong Kong cinema fans. Needless to say, Shinjuku Incident certainly does disappoint, but it is still better than a whole lot of other Hong Kong films around nowadays ? (Neo 2009)

I rate it 6.75/10
