who is in charge of handling protection for Dr. James (Kim Gyngell), a scientist specializing in “bioroid” soldiers, who is on the run from one of these hybrid mercenaries, Andre (Callan Mulvey), one of his experiments gone wrong. Lover of film. Other than Show Lo, the supporting cast are nothing to write about. Despite proving to have solid comedic chops in Stephen Chow films like Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons and The Mermaid, in Bleeding Steel he is an incredibly annoying presence that you just want Jackie to break his neck. And now we get to the comedy. The world's first super bio-warrior. Speaking of disappointing, what was the last good science-fiction film from the Chinese market that was actually good?

( Log Out / If you think Australians were portrayed horribly in Jackie Chan films like First Strike and Mr. Nice Guy, you should see Bleeding Steel. Apparently, every Australian in the film is either a rapist (every man in the slum Nancy visits wants to rape her), a racist (a Uni student claims she doesn’t understand Chinglish [sic]), a bully, an idiot, an insane person, (a TV reporter sounds like she’s having a stroke) a killer, a thief or even Australians playing foreigners, badly.
With Jackie Chan, Show Lo, Na-Na OuYang, Erica Xia-Hou. Nana Ouyang (known as a talented cellist) has a charming presence but she isn’t much of an actress due to her wooden delivery while Erica Xia-hou gives a bland performance as the superfluous cop partner of Lin Dong, who presumably is in the film because she’s a co-writer of the script. Some have said this is a goof, but it's obviously a joke, as he's under cover.
Director: Leo Zhang Directed by Leo Zhang. EXPECTATIONS: More Jackie Chan China-market garbage. | There’s even a scene where Nancy punches out a uni girl (that’s exactly how the actress is credited, no joke) for saying racist things and Lo praises her as a credit to the Chinese. To get the jist of where this review is going, Jackie Chan is credited as “Excetutive Producer” [sic] in the opening credits of Bleeding Steel.
To think that the best thing in the film is the end credits (and no, not because the film ended) because Jackie sings the Police Story theme song in Mandarin. This includes the bloopers at the end of the movie as well as the closing song, sung by Jackie Chan. There’s a scene in the film where Chan fights opponents with props from a magic show that is quite amusing, but unfortunately, there is too little of it and it just fades away. The opening action scene is actually well-executed. Will it look like a well-executed sci-fi venture or will be a sci-fi venture that looks…executed? Why aren’t there police around the Sydney Opera House when there is a major commotion? Lionsgate's 2018 release of this movie removed all Mandarin spoken in the movie. A Special Forces Agent is assigned to protect a scientist and his creation from a sinister gang.

Prime Video has your Halloween picks covered, including a groundbreaking zombie film, an adventure to discover alien life, and a whodunit that will keep you guessing till the end. Last seen in Beyond Skyline in a likable role as a doctor and Batman v Superman as an okay villain, in Bleeding Steel, he just looks laughably bad in his make-up that you almost feel sorry for him. Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi. There are unfunny references to Jackie Chan himself despite the fact that he’s in the damn film! IF.com.au Andre:
( Log Out / Bleeding Steel is just one big pile of awfulness that it becomes shockingly funny. So now, we have Bleeding Steel, Jackie Chan’s first foray into the science-fiction genre. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: You are commenting using your WordPress.com account. Screenwriters: Leo Zhang, Erica Xia-Hou, Siwei Cui, Film lover. The highly-anticipated action scene set on top of the Sydney Opera House is hugely disappointing due to the routine fight choreography, the distracting green screen and the sloppy direction from Leo Zhang. And last and definitely the least, there’s Callan Mulvey as the main villain, Andre. Nancy: Having the camera closer to see the performers would be nice, but little to that type of invention rarely ever happens. Let’s begin with the positives. Another comedic setpiece involves Lo fighting slum-residing rapists (who happen to know parkour because every person who lives in the slums knows parkour) with his belt, doing a terrible Bruce Lee impression with his pants down. Variety Visit me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/FilmMomatic It is quite apparent that infantile, low-brow comedy is one of the hallmarks for the China-market and Bleeding Steel is no exception. But hey, what do I know about people in Australia? Jay and Adam react to, for the second time, Bleeding Steel, a year later and being in English the guys come to a very different conclusion than last time. The film takes place in 2020. View all posts by Harris Dang, […] films like this, The Dragon Pearl and Bleeding Steel, if this is the best the Chinese and Australians can do with their collaborations, then they should […]. And that is it for the positives, because the rest is just putrefying garbage. Filmed almost entirely in Sydney, Australia (my hometown), it was a bit of a big deal over here, especially with the action setpiece on top of the Sydney Opera House and with some Australian talent involved in front and behind the camera, the film might actually exceed expectations. ( Log Out / Unlike Kung Fu Yoga, the quality of the film is so low that you can invite your mates for a drinking night to watch the film and you’ll be guaranteed fits of laughter. Yes, even worse than the execrable Kung Fu Yoga. Even at his advanced age, he still makes plenty of action films like Kung Fu Yoga, Skiptrace and the recent film, The Foreigner, where he still shows his agile action chops.

A Special Forces Agent is assigned to protect a scientist and his creation from a sinister gang. |
It also doesn’t help that none of the supporting actors who play the villains are actual martial artists nor they are a decent compliment to Jackie Chan himself.
But wait, there’s also the story, which is completely patched up with parts of other Hollywood films, which strangely enough, the filmmakers chose to plagiarize G.I Joe – The Rise of Cobra, of all things. This film it's not that bad, but i dont like the intro because i think it's so long it takes more than 2 minutes. But even by China-market standards, this is just god-awful. | You can’t get any worse than this. And boy, it only gets worse from there. The story is treated with utmost seriousness, but the film is always pummeled to the ground with unfunny comedy, and the main culprit for that is Show Lo.
Makes love to film. And the drama is incredibly mishandled, with a dramatic character reveal so obvious that even a coma victim could figure it out.
