I had heard of "Shanghai Noon" when it had first come out, but didn't have much interest in it. But a few weeks ago I decided to try it out once and found it thoroughly entertaining!
Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu) decides to leave the Forbidden City of China to go off to America. But when she arrives in Carson City with her English teacher, she realizes she has been in fact kidnapped, master minded by a traitor, Lo Fong (Roger Yuan). It's up to the Chinese Imperial Guards to save her. One Imperial Guard, Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) is separated from his fellow mates and is stuck in the West without a clue where Carson City is! He ties up with Indians for a while, marrying the beautiful Indian princess, Falling Leaves (Brandon Merrill) then gradually teams up with 'not quite your average outlaw' Roy O'Bannon (Owen Wilson). With the Marshall Nathan Van Cleef (Xander Berkeley) on their tale, will they ever save the princess?
PLOT: The plot of the story is average if not very original. But the acting, action, and humor makes "Shanghai Noon" to be a five-star great movie!
ACTING: Though most people may not believe it, this is my first Jackie Chan movie to watch. Throughout the whole movie he has this sort of wise yet innocent manner about it since he has no clue how to act in the west. Lucy Liu does not come out that much in the movie yet she has her moments. She's so regal that she's great for the part of the princess in captive. Brandon Merrill, a real-life rodeo champion, is very cool as another princess with lots of guts, getting Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson out of trouble. But I must say, Owen Wilson of Roy O'Bannon steals the whole film. He's just so into his part that you can't believe he's only acting!

Shanghai Noon is by far the best Jackie Chan movie made in the US. It is much more enjoyable than the over-rated Rush Hour. For me a large part of that is because I find Owen Wilson to be much more entertaining and amiable than the grating human cartoon, Chris Tucker. But even more than Tucker, the fight scenes are much closer to his Hong Kong films. Close but still not quite there. The action has all of Jackie's trademark acrobatics and fast editing. It seems to be slowed down a bit from Rumble In The Bronx, Supercop or any of his other HK films though.
There is a great deal of chemistry between Jackie and Owen and a lot of that has to do with Jackie's Mr Nice Guy persona. You can't help but feel he's everybody's friend. The relationship of the two characters reminded me a lot of the Robert DeNiro/Charles Grodin relationship in Midnight Run. Owen Wilson is the footloose rouge trying to get the stiff uptight Chan to relax and take life as it comes. This is a fun buddy film that I would highly recommend.

Shanghai Noon is definitely one of my favorites from Jackie Chan. Although I love most of his movies, this one had a different style that made me laugh even louder. The wild west is just something he hadn't incorporated in this movies yet...and finally he did! I'll say it again and again, "I STILL can't believe he does his own stunts! " He is absolutely amazing! Especially in the scene when Jackie and the bandits are on the train and fighting and jumping from cart to cart. It's exciting just watching Jackie take that leap (because you know it's real...it's not any special effects...not the blue screen dubbed background). My favorite scene was when Jackie was being chased by the native tribal dudes. The flying axes really get your attention! Your heart races as you watch Jackie execute each move with flawless conviction. I also enjoy and appreciate how this movie (among other Jackie Chan/Chow Yun Fat/Jet Li flicks) is slowly bringing Chinese culture into the American mainstream. Just the use of mandarin in an American theater is a step up for the Asians. Lucy Liu and Owen Wilson also did a fine job. You'll really enjoy the out-takes at the end of the film. (One of Jackie's trademarks)

We love Jackie Chan, but after a while the formula gets a little tired in spite of Chan's great sense of humor and stunts. Frankly, we weren't expecting more than a little Saturday diversion when we all mosied out to Shanghai Noon.
What a great show! It was hilarious from start to finish. Plus Jackie did a great job poking a little bit of fun at our American lack of cultural or geographical sense.
The masterpiece though was casting Owen Wilson as the "good-bad-guy", a cowboy with a sense of Zen about him. Owen was a perfect match opposite Chan. This film achieved character chemistry all the Wild Wild West should have had but didn't.
Favorite scene-- of course it had to be the "drinking games" while in the bath house.
This film marked a bit of new creative new-genre thinking for the Jackie Chan films.
It's on my wish list for Christmas-- if you don't want one, pick it up for us!

I have to admit that I was skeptical about this film when it first came out. I am not really a big Jackie Chan fan, and the commercials looked especially silly with him in his imperial guard gear. The scenes with the Native Americans also looked a little suspect.
After actually seeing the movie though, I have to say that this was my definite favorite out of the six or seven movies which I saw in the theater this summer. It was very very well written and very funny. I heard quite a few people in the theater saying that they thought it was an even better movie than Rush Hour, and I personally agree. I'd also like to say that my suspicions regarding its cheezy costumes and possible bias against Native Americans were unfounded.
Excellent job all around.
