This is what a Christmas film should be like!’ ‘It feels like a classical Jackie Chan action comedy. Every humble person shows his unique characteristics.

Definitely a great family entertainment.’ A day after Railroad Tigers was released positive reviews and feedback have been spreading even wider as the super funny storytelling totally captures young people’s hearts. All the major box-office charts reveal that Railroad Tigers has been receiving higher and higher ratings from young audiences, and there is no doubt that it is the most popular film of the year among young moviegoers.
Railroad Tigersis not only funny but also packed with cutting-edge special effects. ‘The tank is actually CGI! And the explosion is CGI! … is CGI too!’ The CGI looks so real that the audiences find it incredible. In the featurette on special effects released today, how the train clash scene was created is unveiled to the viewers for the first time. In order to make the images look more real, director Ding Sheng chose to use a model of one fourth of the size of the original train, and it is a collaboration between eleven companies, which took them a whole year to complete. They created 2400 shots with special effects to accomplish this impossible mission, and thevisual impact of the train clash and the explosion is so powerful that it absolutely shocks the audiences.

One can tell that Huang Zitao has put in so much effort into practising martial arts as he fights so elegantly.’ ‘Ordinary people are the real heroes.’ The humorous and self-deprecating tone adopted in Railroad Tigers makes the movie enormously popular with young audiences. The three hottest pop idols, Huang Zitao, Wang Kai and Wang Ta Lu, gather together, and some say that the group of actors that Jackie Chan cast are a great mix of gentlemanly and wicked beautiful young men. Even it is such a masculine action comedy, it wins the hearts of female viewers.
‘The audiences scream with excitement when Wang Kai appears on horseback; the audiences scream with excitement again when Wang Kai drives the tank; the audiences scream even louder with excitement when Wang Kai shoots.’ On the first day of the release, ‘Wang Kai, cool!’ immediately becomes the most searched phrase on the Internet. Comments like ‘Wang Kai looks so cool when he is riding the horse and shooing.
