The first fifteen minutes remind you of a low-quality Chinese soap opera with a bad story and dialogues that begin with ‘promise me that you’ll’ and ‘you must’. But you’ll be in for a treat if you survive that bit because the movie really picks up after that and how! Chris Tucker is great with the incessant, in-your-face comedy and the fight sequences are excellent and inspired. As with all Jackie Chan movies, there are the usual fast and outrageous stunt scenes, lots of people flying all over the place and a hilarious bloopers reel at the end. The story is laden with cliches and could have done with some originality. Yet, it is a very enjoyable movie and one that you wouldn’t want to miss. Highly recommended.
