The Knight of Shadows (2019) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Vash
Starring: Jackie Chan, Ethan Juan, Peng Lin
RATED: UR/REGION A/2:35/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 1
AVAILABLE FROM Well Go USA

Pu Songling (Jackie Chan), a legendary demon hunter, is asked to investigate the mysterious disappearances of young girls from a small village. When he discovers evil forces are kidnapping the girls to feast on their souls, he sets out to save humanity from the inhuman invasion journeying through hidden worlds and colorful dimensions in this fantastical martial arts action-comedy.

I like to consider myself one of the bigger Jackie Chan fans out there and as a result of that, I was extremely happy to hear of his new movie coming to Blu-ray from Well Go USA. The movie is a mystical one at heart. This isn’t Jackie doing stunts all over the place like you might be used to with his older movies, this is a movie driven by a fantasy element and it has lots of GCI stuff and effects driving this movie into what it is. The movie packs a good story, a good cast, and I think it looks extremely good. It’s just a good pop-corn movie in the thick of things and even comes with a dub if you are one of those people that don’t feel like reading the subtitles. Hey, I’m not going to hate on you for it. There are times when I don’t really feel like reading movies myself.

Jackie Chan is always funny and this is a funny movie as well. I think a lot of people might be turned off a bit by the effects and creatures this one has. Like I said before, it isn’t your typical Jackie Chan movie, so as long as you roll into this one not expecting Police Story or Rumble in the Bronx you might just find a perfectly acceptable adventure movie here with some nice choreographed moments and fun characters. You don’t see movies like this every day and some of you might be happy with the fact, but I didn’t mind this one at all at the end of the day.
