Their martial arts scene is too brief.
Tsuyoshi
I also found the subtitles to be very well done here, without feeling like I was getting pulled out of the film's story by having to stop and read the dialogue.

Also known as "Armour of God III." Jackie Chan stars as Martin, aka Asian Hawk in this action comedy. Chan delivers as expected. Heavy action, comedy, and over choreographed fight scenes.

Chan is a master thief who uses his ability to steal art work. His latest job is to find and obtain the 12 bronze heads of the Chinese zodiac which were stolen in 1860. The movie has a theme of western civilization plunder and returning the loot.

The beginning was great with Chan being a human toboggan during his escape, even if he went faster than physically possible. The scenes lessened from this point as a smart adult action comedy turned into a kids movie by the pirate scene which included one man who reminded me of Johnny Depp.

The ending tapered off as the plot became a bit odd with the volcano. Fun popcorn film. Just don't expect too much.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Girl/girl fight.

It took 21 years to get another sequel in Jackie Chan's "Armour of God" franchise. Chan has also gone on record as saying that "Chinese Zodiac" will be his last big action film. So this is as close as we'll ever get to Chan going all out like he used to in the films you've grown to love like "Police Story" and "Drunken Master." The Hong Kong action star is pushing 60, so it's certainly understandable. At the same time, you can't help but wish that "Chinese Zodiac" wasn't so mediocre.

The film opens with the downhill rollerblade sequence. It's an ingenious little device that would make for an easy escape, but this is where the film's issues kick in. You notice the wire work as soon as JC barely averts being squashed between two cars. Movements are often unnaturally fluid while doing incredible maneuvers like doing a back flip while sliding down a pole may seem like a cool concept, but is obviously not executed in the traditional sense. Even Chan's trademark of sliding in between small spaces seems to require the assistance of wires. The notion of giving fans what they want one last time is admirable, but Jackie Chan may have waited too long to deliver. Chan's avoidance of serious action in "Little Big Soldier" was at least entertaining while "New Police Story" at least used wires in a way that wasn't so obvious.

The little things start to bug you in "Chinese Zodiac." JC is a thief. He's trying to be as quiet as possible while sneaking around and stealing precious and priceless artifacts. So why is he stomping around? Are his shoes really that noisy? He can't have lead feet with all of that agility he has. Why Jackie Chan insists on portraying women in such an irritating fashion is bewildering.

"CZ 12" or "Chinese Zodiac" opens with a brief introduction about a historical episode about twelve bronze Chinese zodiac statues looted from the Old Summer Palace in 1860 Beijing during the Second Opium War. Produced, written and directed by Jackie Chan, the film revolves around a treasure hunting team led by Jackie Chan's Asian Hawk, who is hired by Lawrence Morgan (Oliver Platt), a greedy billionaire and owner of a company trading in antiques, to steal the world's valuable treasures and artifacts.

The film's basic format is virtually that of "Armour of God" and its sequel "Armour of God II: Operation Condor," with adventures featuring Jackie Chan and sidekicks (including beautiful women) against the background of exotic locations. The storyline is often incoherent, and female players (Laura Weissbecker in particular) are relegated to thankless supporting roles, but action set-pieces are enjoyable.

58-year-old Jackie Chan still pulls off his trademark physical comedy routines with flair, using props opposite Alaa Safi, but don't expect stunt work of his 80s and 90s classics. Kwon Sang-woo and Liao Fan are good as members of the treasure hunting team, but I think the film could have used martial arts skills of Caitlin Dechelle and Zhang Lanxin more effectively. Their martial arts scene is too brief.

In short, this is a good old fashioned action-comedy, though you might want more action and less comedy while watching it.

Always great to see the old master in action. I know he's sustained some serious injuries in some of his stunts, but he hides them well and is convincing in his abilities to keep going. I hope he does but I worry about his well being.

Great movie hard to keep up with some of the subtitles (too quick) but the pause feature helps there. I really enjoyed the movie and since I've been studying Mandarin Chinese some I was able to follow some, but again, way too fast to get it all. Maybe I'll just need to watch it a few more times...
