Ocean Heaven Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: With the kind help of friends and neighbors, widower and aquarium worker Sam Wong (Jet Li) shares a contented life with his autistic 22-year-old son, David (Lunmei Kwai). That is until Sam learns that he has a terminal illness that will soon leave David orphaned. Now, the doting father begins a quest to ensure that his boy will be loved and cared for after his death. Xiao Lu Xue directs this touching drama.

Review: When American moviegoers think dramatic acting the first name that comes to mind isn't likely to be Jet Li.   One of the negatives about genre film is that we get to see one side of an actor.  Jackie Chan, for example, is a fantastic actor, but we only want to see him jumping around like a monkey.  The same could be said for Li.  Ocean Heaven is a fantastic example of just what Li has to offer as a serious actor.  This film, dealing with autism and the harsh realities that can come with it, is serious, touching and may enduce some teary eyes from time to time.  We do highly recommend checking it out.

The special features on this DVD include: Jet Li interview about Autism, Deleted Scenes, Photo Gallery and Trailers.

Interest Range: Drama
