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.

You know things are getting bad when an instantly forgettable, nearly impossible-to-follow, Chinese-language action movie manages to score a U.S. release simply because of Chan's involvement.

Beyond Mr. Chan's deft work here, "Railroad Tigers," directed by Ding Sheng, is kind of a mess.

Instead of a grand lark of fast fists and derring-do, we get a lumbering, choppy voyage of minimal excitement.

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.

Railroad Tigers is a fun but flabby period adventure that plays to the (current) strengths of its star.

It's only the first week of January, but it will be hard to beat Hong Kong director Ding Sheng's "Railroad Tigers" for the best opening credit sequence of the year.
