      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Dragon Blade is beautifully staged and choreographed, but between the battles, its talented cast is overwhelmed by a dull story and choppy editing.

      Mark Kermode Observer (UK) Handsome production design and sweeping battle vistas lend a touch of class, with Chan directing the action scenes with trademark brio. Rated: 3/5 Jan 17, 2016 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian There are nice moments, but this is pure bombast, and Chan's natural action flair is not given free rein. Rated: 2/5 Jan 14, 2016 Full Review Mark Dujsik RogerEbert.com For those who ever wondered what it would be like to see John Cusack and Jackie Chan engage in a swordfight (both of you), here is "Dragon Blade." Rated: 2/4 Sep 4, 2015 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension ...it would be misleading (if gracious) to focus only on Dragon Blade's handful of redeeming aspects. In total, it's a ridiculous drag of a movie... Jan 14, 2021 Full Review Andrew Heskins easternKicks.com John Cusack and Adrien Brody co-star with Jackie Chan in this messy 'hamfest'... Rated: 2/5 Sep 23, 2020 Full Review Andrew Daley One Room With A View The narrative is notably bizarre, with a smorgasbord of never-ending tribulations and lingering speeches - however, brush that aside for a film that relies on the spirit and merits of its actors and crew. Rated: 4/5 Apr 9, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Dinos K An excellent movie for martial arts with authentic Chinese actors in the lead roles like John Cusack and Adrien Brody Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review marcus Great miscast , nice visuals, not so great directing and editing Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review mike m Bad editing, poor story line, terrible directing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Zach L A funny idea mixing Romans in the making of the Silk Road while fighting agaisnt the villainous Roman empire . The story is quite watchable Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/13/23 Full Review Susan T Best dramaric Chan movie. He should do more dramatic roles. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review alan r Who knew John Cusac and Adrian Brody could do historical action? Of course, Jackie Chan is great in a very physical action movie. Yes, the plot and editing are irratic and the theme is inconsistent. But, just roll with this as an action movie with 3 excellent actors carrying the show.
