With heart, humour and some breathtaking special effects, Ding Sheng's Railroad Tigers charms and thrills, pitting a merry band of Robin Hood-style peasants led by Jackie Chan in rural China against the Japanese military.

Railroad Tigers is a capable wartime caper that thrives on the dynamism and efficient action choreography that manage to conjure a spectacle out of even the most ploddingly penned Jackie Chan vehicle.
