Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan gives his self-mocking humor full flourish in City Hunter, adapted from a Japanese comic book. But that doesn't mean there isn't a solid dose of action--after a brilliantly cartoonish opening, the movie settles into a half-comedy, half-thriller variation on Die Hard, in which Eurotrash terrorists have hijacked a plush ocean cruise liner and super-detective Ryu Saeba (Chan) has to stop them, aided by his lovely, love-lorn assistant (Joey Wong, A Chinese Ghost Story, Green Snake) and a beautiful undercover secret agent (Chingmy Yau, Naked Killer). Though City Hunter is short on breathtaking stunts, there's plenty of well-choreographed hand-to-hand combat. Jackie Chan's lecherous, self-absorbed character (accompanied by a parade of girls into skimpy or skin-tight outfits) come across like a gleeful parody of James Bond (slightly marred by a bit of homophobia). All in all, a high energy romp. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Based on a popular Japanese comic strip, Hong Kong's high-flying martial arts action hero Jackie Chan stars as private Ryu Saeba in City Hunter. Hired to find the runaway daughter of a Japanese publishing tycoon, Ryu's first impulse is to turn the job down - until he sees a picture of the beautiful Shizuko (Kumiko Goto). Hot on her heels, Ryu tracks her down on board a cruise ship, and much to the annoyance of his jealous female sidekick Kaori (Joey Wong) the womanizing Ryu seems more interested in catching Shizuko's attention than returning her safely to her father. However, Ryu's romantic plans quickly go astray when a gang of ruthless criminals hijack the ship and hold the passengers to ransom. To save the day Jackie Chan's unique action style reigns supreme in a series of brilliantly conceived fight sequences as Ryu swings into action to dispatch the bad guys and rescue the goergeous Shizuko!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a live action cartoon! February 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"City Hunter" was adapted from a Japanese comic book and animated series of the same name... and it shows! The actors do the kind of double-takes, gestures, and poses that one expects to see in a "manga" or "anime." This adds greatly to the hilarity of the film.
The story revolves around Ryu Saeba (Jackie Chan) who is hired to track down a run-away heiress. He ends up on a luxery liner, trapped between his jealous secretary, the attractive heiress, a sexy gun-toting female agent, and a group of terrorists bent on capturing the ship and holding the passengers for ransom. And all Ryu wants is a bite to eat... he made the mistake of skipping breakfast!
If you typically pick up Jackie Chan movies for the amazing stunts, this might not be the film for you; there really isn't much of that kind of action here, until the climactic scenes. However, if have an appreciation for slap-stick and screwball comedies, I recommend this flick highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan is City Hunter December 6, 2005
Format:DVD
I absolutely love this movie! If you're looking for a humerous movie that you can just watch and laugh, then City Hunter is the movie for you.

My favorite part in the entire movie is where Jackie Chan is electricuted and imagines himself in a video game where he can change characters and has special powers to fight of the main villian.

I was a little lost however on some of the roles of various characters in the film as I have never read, nor seen the original Japanese cartoon strip from whence this movie was pulled from. But the confusion doesn't really get in the way of watching and enjoying this movie.

Just one more little thing; its probally best to watch this movie in its original language as the English track doesn't have Jackie's voice over, unlike in some of his other dubbed films. As long as you don't mind reading subtitles. Otherwise you'll love this movie....after all, who doesn't like Jackie Chan?

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like live action anime... July 21, 2001
Format:DVD
I have to say that this is perhaps one of the best movies I've ever seen, and by far the best Jackie Chan one. Now, this movie isn't for everyone, but I think most people will enjoy it. Yes, it's extremely cheesy, but that adds to the greatness of it all.
I first saw this as a low qulity fansub, so finding the DVD was very nice. I've never seen the City Hunter anime (or read the manga), but this movie certianly makes me want to! If you get a laugh out of seeing anime-style humor (falling down, giant mallets, etc.) done in REAL LIFE, then you'll love this! The Street Fighter scene is definately the best (and I'll leave it at that so it's not runined for people who have never seen it). Another great scene is the performance of "Gala Gala Happy", which is a cool song IMO.
If you're an anime fan who likes Jackie Chan, then buy this NOW! If you're not an anime fan, but like Jackie Chan, then you will probably enjoy this. And if you're [insert what you are here], you may or may not like it, but I suggest buying it anyway, because there's a better chance that you will like it than not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun film based more on humor than action September 8, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film is a very funny film that is based on the original Anime/Manga of the same name. Many viewers might be disappointed with it because the movie does not rely on action but instead on classic anime gags. If you are a Jackie Chan fan then understand that it does not fit into his other type of films like Rumble in the Bronx or his Police Story saga. As a live action version of an anime it does a very good job and can be quite funny. It was definately worth my money and so far the people that i know who have seen it have loved it. I would recommend it to anyone but would have people know that it is not based on major stunts or lots of fighting.

3.0 out of 5 stars will not be everyone's cup of tea (and it wasn't mine) September 15, 2007
Format:DVD
This really isn't that bad of a movie for what it is. City Hunter is based off of the Japanese cartoon City Hunter, and although this is not an animated film, it is presented as such with loads of cheesy dialouge, goofy characters, cheesy music, and cartoony sound effects. If that wasn't enough, the English dubbing version makes it just about as silly as it can get. Chan's voice unfortunately is not dubbed by himself in the English version, although his English voice-over is present in many of his H.K. films. The biggest reason anyone may want to own this film is that is also features charcaters played by Richard Norton (Road House 2, Mr. Nice Guy, Rage and Honor) and Gary Daniels (White Tiger, Rage, Riot) - the two bad guys.

At some point you may end up turning this movie off before the end arrives, if you are not into such a goofy film. However, the ending is rewarding with a strong 5 minute fight with Jackie Chan against Richard Norton. Easily the best entertaining fight in the film, the Richard Norton character beats up Chan repeatedly with 2 short poles that can change into numchucks. Jackie does some cool small stunts using chairs and tables in the scene. There is also 2 fights with Jackie against the Gary Daniels charcater. The first fight is pretty short in a cabin on the cruise ship. The 2nd fight is just the silliest darned thing I have ever seen. Street Fighter video game fans might enjoy it. Jackie is thrown into an arcade machine, electricuted, and begins to take the form of various Street Fighter 2 characters, while Gary Daniels is Ken. The scene is no more than for laughs. The fight is set to look like someone is button mashing the controls to the game. When Chan becomes Chun Li, that was actually pretty funny.
