I'm sorry to say that this movie is NOT at ALL the quality of Action/Comedy that we are used to Jackie delivering. If you love Jackie as I do, and put "Shanghai Noon" as one of the favourites then you will be disapointed. The movie lacks actually everything. The chemistry between Jackie, and Love H. is really not there, he seems for the first time a little bit un-interested, and the plot is really not good. This movie is probably a must see for fans of "Spy Kids", but for us "older" Jackie fans I will wait for the coming Shanghai Knights. Owen Wilson and Jackie made Shanghai Noon a success based on a funny plot, and an AMAZING chemistry between them.
Jackie you rock, but you can do better than this - it's not the amount of movies but the originality and fun that we are used to you delivering that makes your movies so special!
