Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
Jackie Chan came up with the name "Bennie" for his character, so at some point his partner's daughter Samantha to called him "Uncle Bennie". This is an homage to Kim Chan who played the character "Uncle Benny" in American films including Lethal Weapon 4 (1998). He only changed the ending -y to -ie out of courtesy. See more »
When they ware crossing in to China, at the Chinese border and later when in the interrogation room. Bennie Chan (Jackie Chan) as Chinese could/should have speak Chinese (Even with Hong Kong dialect) to the Chinese border police! He also has spoken mandarin-Chinese in the movie before this scene.

I enjoy this movie but only because I've been a Jackie Chan fan.
The movie features his trademark comedy moves and gags, but as an action martial arts flick his moves against goons are now much slower than his past movies due to his age (respectfully so). The man is still doing his own stunts and the end credit routine showing the bloopers is always a treat for me.
Knoxville portrays a crook very believably well and the pair of opposite do attract and contrast sometimes to keep the story flowing.
Jackie Chan should join forces with all the other old stars such as Yuen Biao, Sammo Hung and make united flick franchises like R.E.D., The Expendables...
In conclusion, Skiptrace is a bit like From Russia to Hongkong in 80 days, with some bits of China tourism ads/commercials thrown in, plus regular Jackie Chan favourite flavours. If you enjoy Jackie Chan, watch it to support him.
