Did not like the silly title nor the tiresome kung fu fighting in modern age of weapons. The diffusion or soft focus filter on the camera lens on the 60 plus year old Jackie was annoying. With that said, fun Asian Indiana Jones adventure in stunning exotic locations (China, Tibet, Dubai, Iceland and India.) The Bollywood dance number force fitted at the ending showed why those younger actors were selected for the film. Like it a bit more than the professional critics for entertainment:

An 'Action Adventure Comedy'- an Interntional Indiana- Jones type of movie! Lots of martial arts scenes and treasure hunting! India-China colloboration! It has it all.. the Ice Caves, the Desert, the Wild Animals, the Sports car and camel chases, the Archeological sites, etc etc! Filmed in Iceland, Dubai, etc!
A number of the Star Film Actors from India and China! Modern and classic mix! Singing in Chinese while dancing Bollywood at the final scene! Who knew that Jackie Chan is such a great dancer!?? A Man of great talent!
Special effects!
A Fun, entertaining, adventurous Movie! Good for the family get-togethers!

A thoroughly enjoyable Jackie Chan film, with some over-the-top slapstick and great laugh-out-loud moments. The fight sequences are good, but the Bollywood dance ending is fantastic.

In AD 647, Arunasva, leader of Magadha Kingdom's elephant legion in India attempted to seize the throne and make himself king. On Wang's second mission to India, Arunasva led his army to waylay...

Pigments on the Terracotta warriors are mostly natural minerals. Red is cinnabar and green is malachite. Blue is azurite and purple is barium copper silicate. This reagent can accurately show the mineral's compositions and color and will not damage the Terracotta warrior.

Eye of Shiva, whoever possesses it shall possess the entire world. After Shiva was reincarnated, her Third Eye remained in the mortal world. Legend has it that it is the key to Magadha imperial treasures. A thousand years ago, Arunasva mutinied and usurped the throne. What he was really after was the imperial treasures. This diamond was most vital to him.
