Railroad Tigers

(鐵道飛虎)
 
Synopsis:

China’s leading director of action films, the critically acclaimed Ding Sheng, presents Railroad Tigers, his third collaboration with the inimitable Jackie Chan. Harking back to the golden age of Chan’s action-comedies, this highly anticipated World War 2 set production delivers a punch boasting sensational visual effects and ingeniously choreographed action sequences showcasing Chan’s trademark athleticism at its very best.

December 1941. Japan extends the occupation of its neighbouring countries to Southeast Asia. The railway from Tianjin to Nanjing in Eastern China is a key military transportation route, heavily guarded by Japanese soldiers.

Railroad worker Ma Yuen (Chan) leads a team of fearless fighters. Using his knowledge of the rail network, he and his men make frequent attacks, ambushing Japanese soldiers and stealing supplies to feed the starving Chinese. Although the fighters have no weapons of their own, they employ whatever tools are at hand, including shovels, railway sleepers and even diverted trains. The local Chinese call the unlikely heroes the “Railroad Tigers”. However, the fearless fighters find themselves on the wrong side of the tracks when the Japanese send in reinforcements to Shandong. In an act of defiance, Ma launches his most dangerous mission yet, to blow up a heavily guarded railroad bridge. When the Japanese learn of the crippling plan, which will derail the war effort, the stakes are raised even higher.
