This movie marked the very first collaboration between martial arts masters Jet Li and Jackie Chan. However, Chan has said he did not consider this film to be "*The* Jackie Chan-Jet Li film," as neither of them had anything to do with directing, producing or choreographing. See more »

I think this movie is a testament, that all blockbusters should strive for: having the perfect balance of action, drama, and comedy. From the awesomely choreographed fight sequences to the laugh-out-loud comedic moments, it truly has something for everyone.
Like someone else has said, there is nothing bad to say at all about this movie. It's one of those fun movies that my family and I like to call "DVD Purchase-worthy," not in the sense of skipping the theater and just waiting for it to come on DVD to watch, but rather an awesome movie we watch in the theater that we'd want to see again and again.
Jackie Chan's continued natural ability for humor and Jet Li's soft-spoken attitude, compliment each other well, like Ying-Yang, culminating in their first on-screen appearance together, that does not disappoint! And Michael Angarano continues to have a knack for picking fun movies to be a part of (first he gets to fly in Sky High and now he gets to learn Kung Fu..how awesome is that!?!) and I see the dude becoming one great up and coming actor!
AWESOME movie! A Friday night well-spent!!
