Better than I expected
20 December 2004 | by jpintarSee all my reviews

This is not so much an adaptation of the Jules Verne novel than the most expensive Jackie Chan movie ever. Like in his other films, Chan is fun to watch particularly in fight scenes. We don't really care about the plot about going around the world in 80 days. Filius Fogg and his French girlfriend seem to just go along for the ride. Fogg is supposed to be a brilliant inventor, yet he can't figure out that his new valet Chan is not French is one of the sillier plot holes. The other problem with the film is despite the big budget, some of the film looks fake looking. The special effects are not very impressive. It is also obvious that much of the film was filmed on a set and not on location. Still, the movie is watchable and it beats The Stepford Wives on remakes. I give it a 6/10 because it is entertaining but it is nothing special.
