I love that Chinese for simplicity. For example, they decided to give money to shoot the movie the Irish terrorists of the IRA, so for the shootings took the role of the Irish — the Irish, on the role of the British — English and the role of the Chinese, not without representatives of the customer, not strangely Chinese!!!

Of course before viewing was great concern over the drama I disliked the celluloid Brosnan and beloved by many unnatural Chan. But Martin Campbell just created a cinematic miracle, probably based on the ethnic authenticity of the actors. The Irishman Brosnan played just Switherland and pulled whole drama and drama Chan reduced as much as possible to it was still possible to admit to investors it role.

In General, the authenticity was put in the head of the corner! If you need to example, the picture of Belfast — move in Northern Ireland and the bombings in London — the fact that Cruz, the capital of Albion. And what especially pleased no Russian Bandos, with entities Bulgarians, Russian hackers with the faces of the French and Russian oligarchs, the right to persons of the most ancient nationality, not have any Russian!

And everything very graphic — blood and human abomination of all parties and absolutely no political correctness, so that the persecutors Vanshtein can after seeing just commit public seppuku. In General, a huge test as the writers managed to completely modernize a very outdated the Chinaman Stephen Leather, as and the operator, which successfully managed to combine visual reportage series, Thriller and romance...

To summarize, I would say that this is a film about it's so real, especially for those who are present in life is not enough

PS. Half of the score was removed because of the excessive simplicity of the sound track and still a weak performance of the tank, well, not him that...

It is curious to fast forward to scroll through multi-year film career of the great Jackie Chan.

In the 70s he was gradually transformed from a stuntman in a widely sought-after actor. In the 80s cheery Dragon number and quality of movies from their participation has historically overshadowed the name Bruce Lee himself, becoming a living legend in the Asian and Eastern European salons. In the 90s, Jackie gave the audience, perhaps the best fighters of the 90s ("City hunter", "Armour of God 2", "Rumble in the Bronx", "Mr. nice guy"), and after the release of "rush Hour" became a star not the continental, but on a global scale.

Unfortunately, at the same time, and in 1999, he began a creative decline of our beloved Chinese: a romantic Comedy with a small the fighter "Magnificent" made clear — Jackie is aging. And that the worst is not physically purely mentally. Apparently, as soon Chan have made the long-awaited recognition in as a comedian and a fighter, he lost interest in strict of militants, colorful multi-ethnic world so it fell in love with. Well that drove a man to head, he allegedly should to prove that he's a good actor. Oh, Jackie... When the Creator begins to make not that want and what you require ambitions, — quality child begins to plummet. John Woo — by the way, is also honkongas, — example.

And so, in 2012 the part of the PR campaign of the film "Armour of God 3" Fighting the King said, say, all — this is the last Orthodox genicheskii action. Of course, the Maestro then played a cunning trick — further he released the classic Comedy fighting "skilled companions" and"kung fu yoga". But the trend was evident: Jackie will gradually change reputation — to become (literally) "Asian Robert De Niro". Oh, well here to which is an imitation? No would love what you is.

"Alien" — the first notHong Kong notChinese movie, in which Jackie Chan performs dramatic role. There is, of course, in the film there are melee episodes, but, first, they damn small, and second, they are deprived of the author's handwriting — if it not Jackie fighting, and Jason Statham, for example. Or VIN Diesel. Or IKO wise. Or... well, anyone can so corny to simulate clashes. Here, of course, you should specifically refer to the representatives of different audiences.

Fans of classic films with Jackie Chan is strictly not recommended to watch this movie because nothing to do (except Jackie) with the"Drunken master" or"Diner on wheels" "Alien" does not give. But here is genre indifferent consumers I give other advice: see, be sure to look! This best Thriller from all that I have ever seen. Dynamic plot. Interesting characters, by the way, pierce Brosnan perfectly played the role crushed by the circumstances of politics. Proprietary gray-gloomy atmosphere of Foggy Albion, which is not driving club and on the contrary, even makes the film more fun. Yeah and if there, though the action is not so much as expects listready on the poster's name "Jackie Chan", the spectator, the however, battle scenes produce moderately good impression.

Total. From the comfort of course, I felt a double feeling. With one hand I looked like I have already said, the best Thriller in your life — have fun. With the other hand, I realized now I'm less and less likely to see the beloved actor in a beloved role. And the culprit ambitions, whether they are cursed.

7 out of 10

P. S. "Alien" is notable not only for its symbolic meaning for the career of Jackie, but and the presence of episodes where illustrate the torso. I swear the thunder, in the 63 years Chan looks better than most 23-year-old men. Another proof that the advanced age and strong patanatomy body a hindrance. Most importantly — activities the discipline.

Every lover of good Thriller knows that the stars of the genre so just not removed along. Earlier, Jackie Chan and pierce Brosnan managed to earn a powerful creative capital through participation in the entertainment rating the movies, and although time being displaced by younger colleagues, they are not lost their ardor, periodically returning to the great movie. the leading role. Not so long ago, Brosnan was fantastic in"the November Man", and Chan, good fun on the filming of "Deadly companions". And so they have together been found in  the"Alien" Thriller, which makes us not just the events on screen as to really worry about the outcome of the story.

Jackie Chan plays here the role of middle-aged men, whose the daughter became the victim of terrorist attack in Central London. Trying to participate in the investigation, it is constantly hears the refusal, because responsible for the search for the attackers (Brosnan) refuses to issue ordinary immigrant any information regarding the case. Realizing that you must act by force, Kwan begins to administer its own justice once again making it clear and power and the terrorists, what is happening, he just not leave. Holding the weapon, the Alien will go to war against the world and will make himself respected.

The film was shot in the new-fangled style of realism. The stunt, melee fights and chases are made in such a way that the viewer believes in the real danger. The Director specifically refused to a big budget and special effects, to take tough action as he had. Simultaneously with this "Alien" makes a special emphasis on the charisma of Chan and Brosnan. Well, no wonder exactly is called to act in this film. Both the stars look the absolute opposite of each other. They can create a powerful emotional conflict, which is not inferior the degree of intensity of the most uncontrollable stage of the battle in the whole film.

The story of righteous vengeance turned out catchy, bold and uncompromising. Martin Campbell and the actors have tried to make a decent movie and fully succeeded. "Alien" is not playing game, it hits the spot. Such a sight I like!
