I'm a huge Jackie Chan fan, and this movie does deliver on its promise that it has some of his best stunt work in recent years. The fight scenes bring back memories of the old Police Story films, with fast and furious fighting all around. There's definitely better fight scenes here than in the recent Rush Hour 3 movie.

So what's the problem? For one thing, this movie is uneven on every level. It's not funny enough to be called a comedy, though there are some funny moments. It's too melodramatic to be taken seriously as a drama. The action scenes are amazing, but take forever to occur. The feeble attempts at romance are laughable. The plot is weird, and the ending is way too over the top (try hooking yourself up to a car battery to see if it's really possible).

While I did enjoy parts of this film a lot, there were a few too many stumbling blocks to call it a perfect film. Still, if you're tired of the "safe" action Jackie's had in many of his recent films, this will feed your need for adrenaline...you just may have to fast forward quite a bit to hit the good stuff.

I did not enjoy the previous effort of a Benny Chan directed Jackie Chan film in "New Police Story" that I was definitely worried about a "Three Men and a Baby" inspired effort. The result was mixed, but going in with low expectations I was pleasantly surprised. "Rob-B-Hood" (US release name is a bizarre name change to "Robin-B-Hood" though in this movie there is no stealing from the rich to give to the poor; neither title is very good) is the third film in the collaboration between Benny Chan and Jackie Chan and Benny's first attempt at a comedic action film. While this film was successful in Asia it was not theatrically released in North America and most of Europe.

Jackie Chan and Louis Koo Tin-Lok star as mediocre bad guys Thongs and Octopus. Jackie Chan tired of stereotypical nice guy roles wanted to play a criminal, though his character Thongs is a burglar and compulsive gambler, the "good guy" nature of his character comes through quite clearly and his performance does not veer far from most of Jackie's previous personae. This role is a good step in broadening his experience as an actor. Octopus is a married womanizer who works with Thongs. He married very young to Pak Yin (the terminally cute Charlene Choi) and is doing his best to woo wealthy young women while avoiding his wife. Thongs and Octopus both work under the guidance of the Landlord (Michael Hui) a conservative criminal who hoards his theft while the other two spend their "earnings".

The kid was cute, and there were parts of the film which slowed almost to a stop. But Jackie Chan is worth the price of admission and you can't go too wrong with Jackie.

I love jackie chan movies, he's my idol, but my favorites aren't the old school kung fu movies my favorites are the ones in the 90's where he speaks in english limiting what he can say but opening up his physical comedy like in Rumble in the Bronx, Who am I, or even Mr Nice Guy. In those movies his personality differentiates him from other kung fu stars like Jet Li(who are all kickin butt and are a dime a dozen). That's not to say i don't like his all out fight flicks like the second drunken master, but i don't really like his old school flicks like the fearless hyena where his charisma is covered up. I say all this because i really enjoyed Robin B Hood and if you are of the same opinion as i am you will like it to. Sure its plot is absurd even way more so than the look-a-like Vin Diesel movie this reminds me of. Sure most of the things that happen are hardly pluasible, but plot and plausibility are hardly what i watch jackie chan movies for. I didn't like his ultra serious roles like in Crime Story as much as i like him snowboarding off a mountain onto a helicopter into a frozen lake like in first strike. If your not trying to find a jackie chan movie like schindler's list which i argue would be more absurd than anything else, but want to see an over the top enjoyable true jackie chan movie with some truly spectacular stunts for his age(which doesn't seem to show in this movie as it did in Rush Hour 3) with cheesy jokes this is the one. If you want the best jackie chan movie to show to children, this is also probably the one(if you don't count kung fu panda. But if you are trying to watch an all out brawl with some humor avoid this one and go for legend of the drunken master, the police storys', rumble in the bronx, or for just one pretty awesome fight scene Gorgeous will do. If you want a movie where he is trying to win an oscar, well i don't know why you liked him in the first place.
