Time Out says

A misfired attempt at a sweeping adventure-comedy in the Indiana Jones style. Back in the Qin Dynasty, an imperial guardsman is turned into a terra-cotta soldier as punishment for seducing a virgin - but she passes him a Pill of Immortality when she gives him One Last Kiss. Two thousand-odd years later, in the 1930s, he wakes to defend the Qin Emperor's tomb from robbers, and finds his long-lost love reincarnated as a pin-brained Shanghai starlet filming on location in Xi'an. Slack scripting and pacing conspire with the overall shortage of laughs and thrills to make this less than exhilarating, despite the plethora of talents on both sides of the camera.
