The private investigator City Hunter (Jackie Chan), who can not resist to the charm of beautiful women, is hired to find Shizuko, the runaway daughter of a powerful owner of a newspaper. His gorgeous and jealous assistant Kaori decides to leave City Hunter and travel in a cruise, coincidently in the same passenger vessel as Shizuko has embarked with City Hunter on her tail. The vessel is attacked by terrorists, and City Hunter protects Shizuko and Kaori.
"City Hunter" is one of the silliest and dullest movies I have ever seen. I do not know the target public of this cheesy production, since it seems to be too much violent for children, and too much stupid for grown-ups, but it is amazing the number of favorable reviews and the User Rating in IMDb. The comedy is not funny, and the imbecile action scenes are very boring and uninteresting. I like Jackie Chan, but I was completely disappointed with this crap. Further, I saw a VHS horribly dubbed in English with subtitles in Portuguese released by the Brazilian distributor "Abril Vídeo", and I noted that the name of the characters are completely different from those indicated in IMDb. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "City Hunter O Caçador de Encrencas" ("City Hunter The Trouble Hunter")
