Chinese Zodiac Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Bryan Durham Site:Times Of India (TOI)

A major grouse against the film is the absence of subtitles in a movie that is in English with a smattering of French and Mandarin (Chinese). Where the film excites with superbly-executed stunts (they never get old, do they?), it also disappoints with a direction-less screenplay (JC’s jack-of-all-trades nature to blame?). Recommended solely for those who enjoy Chan’s unique brand of humour-laden action with light doses of preachiness and drama, this one could be better, so much better.

This silly action-adventure marks a career low-point for Jackie Chan. At 58, the finest kung fu-teer of his generation is clearly past his prime.The redeeming feature of his films has always been the intricate stunts, but in CZ 12 (aka Chinese Zodiac), the accent is on a dull story with very little action or humour. It’s only a couple of skirmishes towards the finale which demonstrate the Chan sparkle. If CZ 12 is Chan’s swansong, the four-decade long career of a peerless entertainer ends with a whimper. Sad.

At 58, Chan still bravely takes on punishing stunts with a smile. His trademark slapstick-infused kitchen-sink style Kung Fu thrills and brings a smile to the face. But the absurd writing messes up his chance to deliver a memorable farewell kiss to the genre that boosted him in to superstardom. While fans of the yesteryear Jackie Chan should steer clear, lovers of so-bad-it’s-good films might want to take a look at this one, though. A colleague (who doesn’t care too much for Bollywood) dubbed this badly made film, Chinese Dabbang while I must confess that I myself was enthusiastically lapping up the silliness myself.

There is nothing really to look forward in the movie. The plot goes haywire, the dialogues are plain dumb, half the movie was in Mandarin and French and the cinematography was mediocre. There are unnecessary comical twists to everything. I mean EVERYTHING! Jackie Chan, post the completion of this movie, now holds the record for performing the most stunts by a living actor. The only saving grace of the movie were few of Jackie Chan’s stunts and fight sequences.This movie is the kind that would make people laugh only if they are with friends who are looking for cheap thrills or are intoxicated. However, the movie is not boring. It will definitely keep your eyes wide open (most time wondering what the hell is happening).Verdict: A full nonsense no-brainer of a movie.
