Excellent viewing for family...because it is a KIDS MOVIE!!!!!
14 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Seriously, people are so affected by reviews of films that if anything comes out, it has to be the new Avatar or Dark Knight. The minute they hear Jackie Chan in a kids movie, they already hate it! What gives? Yes this movie is a kids cliché movie...but it has Jackie Chan in it! This man has more charisma than any other actor that I know of. Last year he made a violent dramatic film called Shinjuku Incident and now he plays like a father character in this one! Now that's good transition into being an actor! Anyway, don't want to spoil anything - it really is a fun movie. Ignore the other reviews because they are fan-boys expecting Jackie Chan to fight in Drunken Master III or Police Story 6 or Project A III etc etc etc.

10 out of 10 easily for me...and I yawned during Avatar!
