Goofs

In the fight scene on top of the tower at the docks, there is one brief shot in which Del Blaine is standing at the railing with her back to the camera while Jimmy fights behind her with a rope round his neck. During this shot, it can clearly be seen that the background is actually a plain black studio curtain rather than the night sky. See more »

Far from Jackie's finest hour
21 May 2005 | by AwesomeWolfSee all my reviews

I started watching 'The Tuxedo' bearing in mind that I'd heard from Jackie fans and Jackie haters alike that 'The Tuxedo' was one of the worst movies ever. It looked like a kids movie, and so I was going to treat it accordingly. Then again, 'The Accidental Spy' looked like a kids movie, and 'Eagle Shadow Fist' looked like a Jackie Chan movie. I should have learned already not to assume anything about a Jackie Chan movie that I have not yet seen.

Jackie plays Jimmy Tong, a lowly chauffeur for millionaire and apparently world famous spy Clark Devlin. I always thought that if someone was a world famous spy, then they aren't doing their job properly. Then again, I always thought Jackie Chan always played action heroes who didn't need the help of some stupid gimmick to kick arse. When Devlin ends up hospital, Tong dons the super tuxedo of death and gets to work on stopping from a water dealing super villain and said villain's mad scientists.

I thought 'The Tuxedo' was meant to be a kids movie, but it seemed a little to adult to be a kids movies. Then again, it comes complete with kiddie violence. Few people would expect a good story from Jackie Chan, but what we do want is a solid action movie. All we have here is a movie obsessed with wires and CGI, and a lacklustre plot. I know Jackie is getting older, but 'New Police Story' had a fair share of wire work, and it managed to be entertaining. 'The Tuxedo' in unimpressive and not very exciting at all.

However, for all I've complained, 'The Tuxedo' has a few funny moments. The scene involving James Brown and Jackie Chan as the 'Emperor of Soul' being a highlight of the movie, even though is supposed to be some sort of action comedy...

'The Tuxedo' is not as entertaining as it looks. It has its moments, but not the sort of movie die hard Jackie Chan fans should watch if they have anything better to watch - 4/10
