Did You Know?


The role of the Little (Young) Soldier was originally written for Jackie Chan, who came up the idea of the story Little Big Soldier 20 years ago. However, it took 20 years to wrap up the script, and now Jackie Chan is cast as the Big (elder) Soldier instead. Leehom Wang takes the role of Little (young) Soldier.

User Review

Jackie Chan At What He Does Best

Rating: 7/10

"Little Big Soldier" is actually an odd-couple road flick set during
China's Warring States period. The war drama, spiced with the usual
Jackie Chan comedy, has been Jackie's brainchild for 20 years before
finally hitting the big screen. Chan had initially planned to play the
role of the young general but having aged since, he has to settle for
the role of the elderly soldier.

Well, having seen Jackie as the titular character, I have no
complaints. He provides the role with its requisite charm and
experience that it is so easy to root for him. A refreshing change from
nonsensical comedies like "The Spy Next Door", I may add.

Jackie plays an unnamed soldier from the Liang State who survives an
ambush by Qin forces that decimates the 2000-strong Liang army. The
lowly soldier, who feigns death rather than fight, captures a young Wei
general (Wang Leehom) and plans to 'trade' him for a plot of land as

Along the way, however, captor and captive face a host of mishaps,
misadventures and plot twists – and they have to team up in order to

As Jackie's own project, you can be sure of the trademark Jackie stunts
and image boosts. Playing a farmer forcibly conscripted into war,
Jackie's message (or ego massage) is that war is bad for the people,
birds and the environment. He throws in lots of slapstick and sometimes
the comedy borders on the ridiculous.

Still, these are forgivable because it is easy to like Jackie's and
LeeHom's characters. They have a sparkling screen chemistry that helps
us overlook the plot-holes and lapses in logic. What's more important
is that "Little Big Soldier" has a nostalgic feel, reminding us of
Jackie's classics like "Drunken Master" and "Snake In The Eagle's
Shadow". – By LIM CHANG MOH (
