Funny and entertaining - the best of this kind of movie yet
12 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thoroughly enjoyable, this action comedy has just the right blend of East and West. When Luc Besson is involved you know the story is going to be entertaining. The dialog is funny even laugh out loud funny and the story is well written and structured with a funny part in the mall and home then the Chinese adventure and then a proper conclusion back home. It avoids the silliness of some Jackie Chan movies and the repetitive martial arts of some other crossover movies. The characters all have good lines and action even the Arun the Cruel. The scenery is pretty with an on location heart of China feel.

Acting is above average for this kind of movie. The main protagonist Jack played by Uriah Shelton is quite likable as the bullied video game geek who gets involved in an adventure in China. Chinese actress Ni Ni is pretty and acts well in the comic parts. Her English diction is good. Taiwanese actor Mark Chao is a convincing warrior Zhao.

Well done - the best of this kind of English speaking Asian action comedy so far.
