MELTDOWN (1995)

I’ll keep this review brief, watched this last night (4th May), it’s a 1995 Chinese action film starring Jet Li, with Jacky Cheung and Yau Suk Jing in support, and directed by Wong Jing. It is full of Wong Jing’s usual over the top characters, and has some intense action sequences.

The thing that spoilt the film for me was the awful English Dub, with some very odd and silly voice choices, especially the voice of the villain. Only the Chinese can truly make a film this fast paced and capture action sequences quite like this. Even though this film is often too silly, it doesn’t stop it from being a brilliant little film.

I recommend this film for any Jet Li fans, and Chinese Action fans alike.

I rate this movie 4 out of 5.
