Trivia

Shot largely at the Barrandov Studios outside Prague in the Czech Republic with a predominantly British crew, filming was frequently held up as it was in the midst of a World Cup. The crew would disappear for 90 minutes to watch the English home team matches, much to director David Dobkin's bemusement. See more »

Goofs

When one of the men stabs at Chon Wang during the Fleet Street fight, he hits a wooden box instead. The rubber blade of the knife curls almost all the way back as it hits the box. See more »

User Reviews

Surprisingly Better than the First!
14 February 2003 | by MrWhite2See all my reviews

This sequel is actually better and funnier than the original. It also has cooler fight scenes too. It is actually a pretty good movie. I laughed really hard in the theater. The story is about a former chinese warrior Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) who after his father gets killed by a ruthless heir of the thrown, seek vengeance on him with the help of his old partner Roy O'Bannon (Owen Wilson) and his sister from China who told him about the death of his father. This one has actually more action and is more funny than the original by a long shot. I personally think that Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights are way better than the Rush Hour movies. I would say this is probably one of Jackie Chan's best movies, and his best comedy for sure. I would recommend this to fans of both Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan and Action/Comedy fans as well. Grade: B-.
