Watch the film Hidden Strike (2023) – Two elite soldiers must escort civilians through a challenge of gunfire and explosions. Despite co-starring Jackie Chan and John Cena and costing $80,000,000 Hidden Strike, originally titled Project X-Traction, had been sitting on shelves for five years before recently appearing on Netflix. That raises more than a few questions about its quality because you don’t sit on something like that for no reason. Usually a very good reason. Set in the near future, a Chinese-owned refinery in Iraq is attacked by unnamed rebel forces. A team of mercenaries under the command of Luo Feng (Jackie Chan, Ride On, The Protector) is sent to evacuate all 498 employees, including his estranged daughter Mei (Chunrui Ma, The Fate of Swordsman, Love O2O), down the Highway of Death to the safety of the Zone Baghdad Green. Elsewhere, Chris Van Horne (John Cena, Bumblebee, Fast He also heard that the terrorists responsible for the death of some of his father and some of his teammates were on a bus convoy heading to the Green Zone. Now if you guessed that Chris ended up hiring some mercenaries to get money and the terrorists and ended up attacking the convoy that Chan was leading, congratulations. If you also guessed it was a trap and the two had to fight a common enemy, you were right again. Do sparks fly between Chris and Mei? I’m sure you can figure it out too. Director Scott Waugh (Act of Valor, Need For Speed) and writer Arash Amel (The Titan, Erased) deliver a generic buddy film that really needs some amazing action scenes to distract the viewer from how bland and predictable it all is. Unfortunately what they get are mostly scenes that look like they were lifted not from an $80,000,000 international co-production starring a pair of action heroes, but from a $5,000,000 DTV thriller. And the CGI would look ugly even at such low levels. To be fair, Chan does put in a solid performance, delivering some nice stunts and one inspired sequence with him fighting on top of a pipe while Cena uses a long pipe to prevent him from falling and eject him from the problem. However, a later scene where he fights in a small sea of ​​industrial foam is just silly rather than funny. Cena gets less to work with, just having to look intimidating and throw people off.
