Trivia

Due to Mallika Sherawat's racy image in Bollywood, rumors circulated that she landed the role over many other Indian actresses (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Lara Dutta, and Priyanka Chopra) because she was willing to do full frontal nudity in this movie. When these rumors were spread, Director Stanley Tong and Jackie Chan held a special press conference in India to say that they picked Sherawat over many others because of her great charm and genuine acting talent, and that the movie did not even have a kissing scene, let alone full frontal nudity.

brilliant jackie chan movie
11 April 2006 | by chrichtonsworldSee all my reviews

This is a much better movie than previous jc movies made in Hollywood! There is more of a story and more drama. The scenery is excellent. It really brings out the beauty China and India has to offer. After reading several comments from reviewers i can not understand that they did not like this movie. Yes it's more serious, yes it is not typical JC action. But people forget JC is not up to his stunts because of his age. Still he kicks ass like the martial artist he is. I am a Jackie Chan fan since i could watch movies (5 years old)! And i have always liked his movies until he made real bad ones in Hollywood! Since his return in Hongkong you can see the improvement (maybe freedom he has making this movie)! The use of CGI was fitting for this kind of story.Honestly i really was moved by the story. People who love action you will get what you want,amazing stunts and the best martial arts! Also you romantic lovers will not be disappointed! I have only one point of criticism and that is the abrupt ending! But overall one of the better (Jackie Chan) movies made these last years.
