2.0 out of 5 stars Amazon has the wrong spec. again June 24, 2011
By J. Wu
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The movie is not that great which most people alredy knew. However, the extrme lack of efforts with this Blu-ray is shocking. Amazon has the wrong spec. about audio; the disc actually only has PCM stereo (2.0)!!!!! It's not even as good as the DVD which has multiple 5.1 language tracks. Buyers be aware.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 GOOD April 26, 2004
By MMAfan
Format:DVD
I have always been a Jackie Chan fan and I own most of his movies but this one is probably one of his worst. In this movie he plays as a cop who dies and comes back to life because of the Medallions powers. He get lots of strength and can take bullets without being killed. This is one of his movies where he doesn't have lots of cool stunts and all the action. I like when he uses more of the items around him to defeat his enemies but he doesnt use any in this movie. I have only seen one movie where Jackie is killed and that is The Prisoner.

What you expect, Jackie is 50 years old this year but I think he could still do what he did in his older movies. All of his current time movies have something in them that gives him power and strength that a normal person wouldn't have. What happens in his older movies such as Rumble in the Bronx, and First Strike could happen at any time in real life which made them better. But in this movie you know that no one will be able to come back to life from a medallion.

I recommend some of his older movies such as Rumble in the Bronx, Legend of Drunken Master, Who Am I, and Gorgeous.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short & Sweet August 21, 2005
Format:DVD
Jackie again does all his own stunts in this action comedy also starring Claire Forlani and Lee Evans.

I quite like this movie. Note that despite seeming like a Hollywood film it is actually a Hong Kong film shot in Hong Kong, Thailand and Ireland. I've been debating as to whether or not to give it 3 or 4 stars but I've chosen to go with 4 stars. The film itself has pretty average action and comedy, but the idea that this movie is really aiming to be something great appeals to me. The outtakes at the end of the film are also very funny.

The DVD has a very straight laced audio commentary- not that much fun but nonetheless informative. It also features a wide array of deleted scenes. I'm kinda glad the deleted scenes didn't make it into the film. Only one is worthwhile, and that involves Jackie Chan revealing that he is alive to Claire Forlani. It explores the history of the characters very well and it's a shame it was cut from the film. It also has Claire Forlani at her dramatic best (quite reminiscent of her role in "Meet Joe Black").

In summary, The Medallion is short and sweet. Check it out. You might like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Don't you think I recognize my own thing?' June 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Legend says every thousand years a child is chosen that can bind the two halves of the medallion together and restore life to the dead. Now you get that kid AND the medallion? You're a god." In THE MEDALLION Hong Kong detective Eddie Yang teams up with two Interpol agents (Claire Forlani, Lee Evans) to take down the British criminal mastermind Snakehead. Snakehead (Julian Sands) nurses definite world-conquering ambitions and he sets his eyes on obtaining a mystical medallion which bestows its owner with super-strength, immortality, and other extraordinary abilitiies. But the key lies in the mystical little Chinese boy who controls the medallion, and you'll just have to overlook the fact that even though this sacred kid inhabits a Buddhist temple deep in the sewers of Hong Kong, he speaks with an English accent. The boy falls under Eddie Yang's protection. Eddie's protection kinda sucks.

I like this movie mostly because Jackie Chan is in it, and because I love Claire Forlani and her marvelous eyes, and occasionally Lee Evans's oddball, fumbly comedy stylings ("Interpol, freeze!"). Jackie's physicality is as amazing as ever, and the best sequence here may well be his pursuit of a lanky, particularly agile henchman thru the streets of Dublin. When Jackie effortlessly scales that tall gated wall, whew... But THE MEDALLION demonstrates again that a Jackie Chan picture doesn't fare too well with CGI, and this is because Jackie by himself is a walking, breathing special effects. Jackie has performed his own death-defying stunts for so long that any outside embellishments just seems superfluous; it really feels like cheating. As far as his role in the film, I thought Eddie Yang was handling his business pretty well before he gained all these super powers...

OK, let's face it. "The Medallion" which is basically a Hong Kong film (directed by Gordon Chan), is a disappointment to many fans in English-speaking countries. Yes, the plot about the big medal is silly at best. The jokes are corny (sure), and the CGI-enhanced actions are not clearly the best of Jackie Chan (who is 50 years old, but doesn't look like that). And as to his Hong Kong roots, Jackie made better films like "Who Am I?" "Project A" and several "Police Story"s.
But "The Medallion" is not as bad as other reviews suggest, as long as you are a die-hard Jackie Chan fan. You can sidestep the story (for which five names credited!) about the magical golden medallion, and the thug who wants it (Julian Sands), and the buddies who chase him (Chan and delightful Lee Evans). After a botched police raid in Hong Kong, we see Chan's character Eddie landed in Dublin (but why Dublin? DON'T THINK!). Eddie meets Nicole (Claire Forlani, so beautiful) in the office, and the latter slaps him in the face for no other reason than to show her 'I love you but you treat me bad' attitude. Don't say it's corny, just have fun (or pretend that you didn't see).
And the actions start. They are choreographed by legendary figure Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, who worked with Jackie many times before. The stunts are adequate, just good, but the use of wire is sometimes glaringly obvious while Jackie's movement itself is still agile. Still while watching it, I remembered his death-defying stunt in "Rumbles in Bronx" in which Jackie literally jumped from the top of the building to the terrace of the next one. It was a superhuman feat, and he said that he didn't use wire because it made the movements unnnatural.
