  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: As written and directed by Lee, the film occasionally finds grace, especially in its earlier, quieter moments but eventually succumbs to the dull, overblown trappings of the epic tradition to which it insists on trying to belong.

    • Excerpt: For those who ever wondered what it would be like to see John Cusack and Jackie Chan engage in a swordfight (both of you), here is “Dragon Blade.”
  • James Marsh @ Screen Daily
    • Excerpt: The Roman Empire takes on China’s mighty Han Dynasty in Daniel Lee’s latest period action adventure, as Jackie Chan’s Silk Road guard and John Cusack’s renegade centurion form an unlikely partnership against Adrien Brody’s despicable Roman general.

  • Kristy Puchko @ Spinoff Online
    • Excerpt: It’s a bumpy ride down the Silk Road, but one filled enough with colorful characters, exhilarating action and affable earnestness to make it worthwhile and wondrous.
  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Epic in scope is Dragon Blade -= but not the best film Chan has made.
