Chinese action romp with a dash of nationalistic fervor....
11 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Wolf Warrior is a Chinese military action romp with a dash of nationalistic fervor.

This is a mostly very watchable action film. It has a strongly military flavour, with a discernible thread of Chinese nationalism, that reflects that nations emerging role as a military superpower. As such, its enjoyable but also a bit corny at times, as films that mix entertainment with nationalism and patriotism, tend to be.

Wolf Warrior is well paced and chocked full of action. Its interesting to see the Chinese take on a military action flick. The cast is a mix of local talent and foreign actors who take on the role of the bad guys threatening China's boarders.

All in all quite worthwhile if you can accept this film for what it is. Certainly its no better or worse than the nationalistic films cast in the same frame from other countries such as the US and UK. Seven out of ten from me.
