Dragon Blade

by Daniel Lee
Great Historical Epic Featuring Jackie Chan and John Cusack

A historical epic that focuses on the Silk Road during the later days of the Roman Republic, the film follows Huo An, played dutifully by Jackie Chan, as he fights to help protect his new found friend from the west, General Lucius, from the corrupt and insane leader Tiberius, played by John Cusack and Adrian Brody respectively. The movie serves as a nice blending of the eastern and western aesthetic, both regarding literal storytelling and the overall tone of the film, which takes flavors from western and eastern historical epics and mixes it into a cultural blend, symbolic of the Silk Road the story it focuses on. The action scenes are great, the acting is serviceable (with John Cusack being the weak link), and the overall story is refreshing enough to entertain for its meager runtime. Definitely, a good way to spend an evening.
