When Lord Rathbone revealed an automatic Gatling gun and said
it was British ingenuity he was partially incorrect. The Gatling gun was a hand cranked weapon that was created by Richard Gatling, American, in 1861 and patented May of 1862. The first automatic, self-powered machine gun was invented by an American born Briton, Sir Hiram Maxim in 1884 and first displayed in 1885. The Maxim gun bared little resemblance to the Gatling gun.

I saw this movie only to accompany my children, but I absolutely loved it! Had never seen a Jackie Chan movie, but now I want to see Shanghai Noon too, so we will rent that one. There were several adult references and I don't mean sexually, but funny references only adults would remember. Be sure to stay for the credits as the outtakes are great. I want to see it again!
