OK Chan Film
First off, I found the plot a bit problematic at times. Not atypical for a Chinese movie, no offense to the Chinese movie makers intended.
As a race fan, the auto racing scene did not look realistic to me much of the time. I read that they drove at slower speeds and sped up the film, which is exactly what it looks like. They are going way too fast for sports cars in some scenes.
Besides the excess speed, the cars are not smooth. Skilled race drivers are not driving all over the track – that would obviously cause you to lose time, and probably control 🙂 Not a big deal maybe to a general audience, but people familiar with racing will notice it.
Some of the fighting scenes were pretty good, as expected. I did not feel my time was wasted. I just wish they had done the racing in a more realistic way.
Jackie Chan Does Racing
One of Jackie’s most underrated and maligned films, Thunderbolt has always been unfairly bashed, I think. Chan fans disliked it because of the over-edited fight scenes, and Jackie’s use of a stunt double, and others thought it boring, and the racing aspect uninteresting. I can understand the criticism, and this definitely isn’t for everyone, but it’s a fast-paced, enjoyable action movie if you can get passed the faults like I did.
This is one of Jackie’s more serious movies, and there’s no comedy really. Jackie has broken away from his comedic style and done many serious movies, like The Protector (1985), Jung on zo (1993), Jing cha gu shi 2013 (2013), Xin Su shi jian (2009), and The Foreigner (2017). Most of his serious movies have had varied success, with some being praised and others being more middling or disliked. Thunderbolt gets serious Jackie just right, and is worth watching. Jackie’s performance is solid as usual, and he’s not unbelievable as a race car driver. Every Chan fan knows about his infamous leg injury during filming for Hung fan kui (1995), and so he needed to use a stunt double during some wide-angle shots in fight scenes here. My vision may be failing, but I didn’t notice the double really at all, except for one or two small instances, and I can understand why he used a double anyway. He’s done so much to entertain us in the past, can’t people cut him a break?
Gordon Chan is a fine director for something like this, though he could improve. He may be the Oliver Megaton of Hong Kong action films, and anyone who has seen his films, mainly Taken 2 (2012) and Taken 3 (2014), will know what I mean. Megaton has a very kinetic style, and he tends to over-edit his fight scenes, and includes many jerky cuts during his action scenes, to the point that they’re reminiscent of the Bourne films. I actually don’t mind Megaton’s style that much, and still enjoy his movies. Gordon Chan does much the same here, greatly editing and cutting his fight scenes, and this was a problem for many people because other HK directors like Stanley Tong and Sammo Hung know how to best utilize Jackie in a fight scene, and they shoot one or two wide-angle shots with very few cuts. Gordon’s fight scenes here are more kinetic and more tightly-shot, with more close-ups than is usual for a Jackie movie, and if you’re not into this than steer clear. The fights were still enjoyable for me, and Jackie still performed lots of great moves and stunts.
The story’s ok, pretty standard 90s stuff. The villain is painfully 90s, and your usual OTT action movie bad guy. The racing element was actually interesting, but I have to say, I don’t agree with the statement that this is a premake of The Fast and the Furious (2001). The only things the two have in common are action and cars. But the fact that this came before the biggest car-related action franchise is cool.
There’s no shortage of action here. There are three fight scenes, with two being large-scale, memorable ones, and the pachinko hall fight being a highlight. There’s a bloody shootout that was tightly-shot and edited, a really nice car chase early on, and an excellent final race/car chase, with some above-average car stunts. Lots of great crashes and explosions occur, and one car flies through a little watchtower. It’s actually very well-done, and better than I expected honestly. Jackie’s fight are his usual top-notch stuff, and they’re only slightly hampered by the directing. Jackie even fights Ken Lo again (remember Jui kuen II (1994)?).
I can recommend this to Chan fans. If jumpy, hyper-kinetic action is ok with you, than you’ll enjoy it. The car stunts are worth a look.
