Railroad Tigers Trailer

"This looks like… amateur hour!" Well Go USA has debuted a new US teaser trailer for an action film from China titled Railroad Tigers, about a "ragtag" group of freedom fighters who ambush a military train. Jackie Chan stars, playing a railroad worker who leads a team of skilled fighters trying to take out the Japanese in order to get food for the poor. The rest of the cast includes Huang Zitao, Wang Kai, Darren Wang, Alan Ng and Sang Ping. This looks way too goofy to be really taken seriously, unfortunately. It seems like the kind of film you'd find somewhere in a back corner of your local VHS rental shop, complete with cheap, cheesy VFX. I wished this looked any better, but it seems like it's going to end up being so bad.

Here's the first US teaser trailer (+ poster) for Ding Sheng's Railroad Tigers, direct from YouTube:

In this action-comedy caper harkening back to Jackie Chan's classic Hong Kong films, a railroad worker (Chan) and his ragtag group of freedom fighters find themselves on the wrong side of the tracks when they decide to ambush a heavily armed military train filled with desperately needed provisions. Unarmed and outnumbered, they must fight back against an entire army using only their wits, in a series of a dazzling set pieces and action scenes rivaling anything seen on the big screen before. Railroad Tigers is directed by veteran Chinese filmmaker Ding Sheng, of the films Underdog Knight 1 & 2, Little Big Soldier, Police Story: Lockdown and Saving Mr. Wu previously. Well Go will release Railroad Tigers in select US theaters starting January 6th, 2017 at the beginning of next year, just one week after it opens in China. Anyone?

Without a single female character you're hoping to get any pass, even as a mindless fun? Nope ...

I think this looks great! "Little Big Soldier" was a ton of fun; this being from the same director has my anticipation.

Trailer looks good to me. It looks like a comedy.
