Watch this if you liked: "CZ12", "Skiptrace", "Railroad Tigers", "Indiana Jones"

The Good, the Bad and the Jackie:

• Jackie Chan's character is basically a Chinese version of Indiana Jones. Although his stunts in this film are not as extensive as those seen in "CZ12", he still plays a very likable character that's a combination of all his past roles.

• While some praise can be given to seasoned actors Sonu Sood and Aarif Rahman, the same can't be said for fresh Bollywood actresses Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur who are very stiff in their dialogue and body language delivery.

• There are many computer-generated animals especially one scene that is set in a zoo and the one with a pack of hyenas and another with a lion. They might not be too realistic looking thanks to the CGI work, however if one can overcome that, then the scenes are actually quite enjoyable if watched purely for the sake of entertainment.

• Although the plot of the film might be predictable and at times the twists and turns may be illogical and over the top, however this is a family friendly film that is sure to entertain once you don't put in too much effort to question the 'whys' and the 'whats' of certain depicted situations.

Look out for:
• The Bollywood dance sequence at the end of the film.

Trivia:
• Although the lion in the car scene might look fake, this is because some of the lion's reactions were animated. The lion itself is 100% really on set and was borrowed to director Stanley Tong by the Princess of Dubai.
