[NeoFilmShop.com] Shanghai Noon (2000) – USA
All the latest Asian/Martial Arts DVD and Blu Ray in NeoFilmShop.com
Back in 2000, when Jackie Chan is still capable of making actual funny movies. Chan’s pairing with Owen Wilson, not only launched a Hollywood career for his counterpart, but a hugely enjoyable action packed “east meet west” film about cowboys, imperial guards, royal family and American Indians. This exotic mix ends up working particularly well as Wilson’s comic timing matches with Chan’s slapstick action with almost seamless chemistry. Lucy Liu appears strong enough to be more than a flower vase role. All in all, this is easily one of Chan’s better efforts in Hollywood and possibly one of his most entertaining in the West.
I rated it 4/5
