冰封俠: 重生之門 (Iceman) (Blu-ray release 2014-6-20) is a remake of a Hong Kong 1989 movie.  It’s basically about some soldiers from hundreds of years ago got frozen, survived and are awaken in the modern world.  Reviews of this movie are generally negative, but I find that it represents an advancement of CG-enhanced Hong Kong style action.  While Hong Kong movies of this type generally cannot be taken seriously, some jokes also help making it more enjoyable than it might have been.  This movie also works as a tourist attraction video because it shows off several notable locations.  The thing I really hate is the cliffhanger ending.  Unless a sequel gets made the story stops in the middle.
