Goofs

A shipping container would not sink in water when it is full of air. When the container with Eddie & the boy in it hits the water, it immediately sinks like a stone. But it is still full of air, which would make it like a flotation device. And since the door was unlatched before it was pushed in the water, Eddie could have just pushed it open. In fact, the impact should have knocked it open. See more »

Too Painful to Watch, Too Loud to Sleep Through
20 September 2003 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

In 3 words, awful, awful, awful.

I began watching Jackie Chan movies because it was SO cool that anyone could move like that. He didn't need the stuntmen, he didn't need the CGI, he was just that good. Plus, his movies had a sense of humor that was subtle enough to be funny without feeling you were being hit in the head with a 2x4.

And now this travesty of a movie. The action scenes? CGI'd up to the point that Ben Affleck could pull 'em off. The comedy? Lame, and forced.

As I sat in shell-shocked silence at the end of the movie (having tried desperately yet unsuccessfully several times throughout to go to sleep), all I could wonder is, what was Jackie Chan thinking? :(
