Plot Summary:

Jackie Chan’s latest China-set action comedy revolves around a fictional group of Chinese railwaymen’s near-suicidal mission to sever a major transport link for the Japanese army during World War II. Chan plays Ma Yun, the leader of a band of seemingly meek railroad porters who ambushes passing trains and strips, robs and humiliates Japanese soldiers traveling on them. Their vigilantism is finally given a purpose when a Chinese soldier Daguo (literally “Big Country,” and played by Taiwanese actor Darren Wang) asks the troupe to blow up a bridge in order to halt the Japanese onslaught toward China-held territory.
