Product Description

Set during China s war period, Little Big Soldier is the story of a soldier (Jackie Chan) and a general (Wang Leehom) who come from opposing states and also have very much opposing views on the war and the world. Jackie Chan in one of his finest performances plays a soldier from Liang, who ultimately survives the war by playing dead. Lee Hom Wang plays a general from Wei, who is wounded fighting for his country. A painful yet comical journey commences when the soldier decides to kidnap the general and bring him back to his state in the high hopes of collecting a reward. When the unlikely duo is confronted by danger, they quickly learn that they must join forces in order to survive!

While action legend Jackie Chan's career continues to wane in the United States, he has in recent years enjoyed a revival in his native Hong Kong, and the period-action comedy Little Big Soldier is perhaps the best of those efforts. Set during China's Era of Warring States (roughly 475-221 BC), the story centers on Chan as a farmer-turned-soldier who survives a bloody battle with a valuable prize--a wounded general (Wang Leehom) from the opposing army. The personality clash between the savvy, scrappy Chan and Wang's initially aloof warrior makes for some amusing comic moments before the pair are forced to bond in order to save each other's lives; what follows is a traditional buddy/road comedy, enlivened by the chemistry between the leads and a handful of fight sequences that show Chan still nimble and physically adept after three decades of martial arts movies, most notably in a sequence where Chan brawls while using only one leg. Director Ding Sheng's eye for period detail and grime is also a plus, but the key appeal to Little Big Soldier is seeing an invigorated Chan in his classic underdog role and clearly enjoying the opportunity to bring this long-gestating personal project to life. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack includes the film's domestic and international trailers, as well as a standard-issue behind-the-scenes featurette and a music video featuring Chan in a recording studio. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Soldier Little General Nov. 8 2011
By Alan Rivière TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
*Spoiler Alert* This review may contain spoilers.

Written and produced by Jackie Chan, this comic-action film is based on the story of a soldier (Jackie Chan) and a general (Leehom Wang), who were the two sole survivors of a battle between two warring states, during the dark Warring State Period of ancient China between 475-221BC, when warlords fought among themselves for territories and millions perished. The soldier held the wounded general captive and attempted to take him back to his land to claim his reward. The soldier was a humble farmer forcibly conscripted into the army; the general, on the other hand, turned out to be the crown prince of the enemy state. During the long journey, the two developed a reluctant bond, as they encountered wild animals, bandits, and other dangers, while being pursued by the brother of the crown prince and his men, who was determined to kill them in order to ascend to the throne. Leehom Wang plays the condescending general with wit and humor, but the one to watch is Jackie Chan. He surely knows how to act. I used to think that he was mostly an action actor, but his comic acting ability shines through in this film. Don't miss out on this excellent Little Big Soldier DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan's fantastic historical epic Sept. 15 2011
By Cheryl TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This entertaining epic and period war tale stars Chan as a peasant determined to collect a reward by delivering a captured General. The story constantly moves with action and humour, but there is also good character development, a reflection of the well suited performances. There is some wonderful scenery that's put to good use - and as a fan, I should have sought out the blu-ray first (but compulsively bought the dvd instead). Extras on the dvd include a couple of trailers, a Jackie Chan music video and making of featurette. Highly recommended for fans. (4 1/2 stars)
