Trivia

When Artie Doyle tries to break the lock of Madame Tussaud's, Roy compares his work to that of a surgeon. This is probably a reference to the fact that the real Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a physician, even though in the movie he's a detective. See more »

Goofs

Charlie's face is dirty when Wang and O'Bannon meet him. But a few minutes later, when Charlie, hiding in a crate, sneaks a peek at Wang fighting a group of thugs, his face is clean. See more »

Entertained and funny movie with two sympathetics protagonists
5 July 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This second part is a follow up of¨Shangai noon¨with the likable starring(Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson) who are going to London for retrieve a brilliant royal object that Jackie Chan's father was guarding in the forbidden city Pekin when he was murdered.They know to Victoria queen (Gemma Jones) and a roguish street boy called Charles Chaplin.They'll confront against the villain(Aidan Gillen and Donnie Yen) which want overthrow the British and China thrones and nasties Boxers Chinese and even Jack the Ripper(Oliver Cotton). Meanwhile Owen Wilson falls in love with Chan's sister(Fam Wong).

Chan and Wilson make a jolly and perfect couple. It's habitual in Chan films create duos, a ¨buddy movie¨type, such male:Chris Tucker(Rush hour I and II)as female:Jennifer Love Hewitt(the Tuxedo) and Claire Forlani(the medallion) and here magnificently with Wilson. The choreography fights are excellent ,they are made as musical numbers, there are a remembrance to dancing¨singing in the rain¨as well as Harold LLoyd,Keistone cops and to the author Arthur Conan Doyle with his Sherlock Holmes. It's an agreeable picture but uneven comedy,works better when Jackie Chan goes into the action.It's a Chan vehicle for the continued struggles in bounds and leaps. The final confrontation among the starring and the enemies on the Thames river with fireworks background and in the Big clock tower are overwhelming and breathtaking. Cinematography(Adrian Biddle) and music(Randy Edelman) is spectacular and atmospheric. Production set is extraordinary, it's very well designed 1887 London epoch. the pic is rightly directed by David Dobkin. Rating:Nice and bemused .
