“Failure is something I could never live with again – how’s that for assurance?”
Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings superstar Orlando Bloom proves himself a knockout action hero in this dazzling Shanghai-set feature debut from Charles Martin (director of Skins and gripping TV crime drama Marcella), from the team behind Mechanic Resurrection, Welcome To The Punch and Iron Man 3.
Bloom lights up the screen as the charismatic and not-to-be-messed-with Danny Stratton – a cross between Matthew Bourne and The Transporter. Entrusted with taking the ultra-valuable Zodiac Vase – ‘the soul of China’ – from Shanghai to London, Stratton’s hi-tech crew are hijacked on their way to the airport in a nerve-shredding chase sequence – by the same gang who hit Stratton a year before and left his career in tatters. Bloom is brilliant as a man with nothing left to lose, who’ll stop at nothing to even the score – right up to a nail-biting, vase-tossing finale.
Superbly filmed in and around the striking, neon-drenched city of Shanghai, with a pulsing soundtrack (including Katy Perry’s song Roulette) and jaw-dropping action set pieces, the film also features Simon Yam and Lynn Xiong and Xing Yu, stars of the action classic Ip Man. This is a sensational mix of twisty heist thriller with high-kicking actioner, as if Ocean’s 11 was crossed with Taken, and, with the commanding central presence of a blond, buff Bloom, THE SHANGHAI JOB is just the ticket for those in search of stylish, breathless entertainment.
