Editorial Reviews

Jackie Chan (RUSH HOUR 2) and Owen Wilson (THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS) jump back in the saddle for SHANGHAI KNIGHTS, the hilarious sequel to the hit action-comedy SHANGHAI NOON. When Chon Wang (Chan) gets news of his estranged father's murder in Shanghai, he leaves his honorable life as Carson City's sheriff in a cloud of dust and reunites with his yarn-spinning sidekick, Roy O'Bannon (Wilson). Together they make their way to London on a daring quest for honor and revenge. Hilarious escapades and hair-raising adventures ensue as our heroes find themselves in the middle of a devious plot to eliminate the entire royal family. And Chon gives Victorian Britain a royal kick in the pants as he tries to avenge his father's death and keep love-struck Roy away from his sister!

By A Customer on February 16, 2003
I disagree in part to the reviews both positive and negative to this film. Please remember a few things: Chan choregraphed the fight sequences. The whole "in a real fight Yen could beat Chan" comment is flawed: JC was in total control of that fight, and younger vs. older: it doesn't matter. Who wins or loses is a device of the plot. He wins (and I'm not giving anything away; you see as much in the commercials) and the story moves on. The competition is now Matrix-style and Crouching Tiger-style martial arts filmmaking. Once you've opened the CGI-Pandora's-box, how do you compete with that? JC sticks to showing the artistry and physicality of the fight sequences that the outtakes later prove that the actors are actually fighting, and not "helped along" with any kind of flashy, sometimes distracting effects. The trick was to do old-school kung fu in light of the competition and have it work. In this movie, it works really well.
As for JC losing creativity: remember this movie was made with American audiences in mind (think of all the really-corny, lighthearted, stereotyped ethnic jokes, and you can only conclude this was made for Americans). Americans are practically totally ignorant of any other movie JC has ever done outside of the Rush Hours. What movie hasn't recycled some of their better moments--especially sequels? Parts of the opening fight sequence were lifted from Rush Hour-2; parts of the end fight sequence was lifted from Shanghai Noon. They worked; they were memorable moments. Bring them back to refresh audiences' memories. The creativity comes from the situation and the scene.
And all Jackie Chan movies have outtakes; they're not "beginning" to become signatures.

Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson reprise their hit roles from Shanghai Noon for another go around of odd couple-buddy kung fu action-comedy to solid results.
After receiving word from his sister Lin (Asian Superstar Fann Wong) that their father was killed and the Imperial Seal their family was sworn to protect was stolen, Chon Wang reunites with Roy O'Bannon and heads to England to avenge his father's murder and recover the Imperial Seal. Along the way our heroes find help in the form of a young street thief and a "Scotland Yard detective with a penchant for deduction" and uncover a deadly plot that will change the course of history of both Britain and China if successful. Supporting stories include Roy's growing infatuation with Lin and Jackie playing "overprotective big brother."
Like in the Rush Hour series, all the charm and chemistry between Chan and his buddy (in this case Wilson) is preserved. The pair work and play off one another well and it shines through. Wilson's hilarious, laid back delivery style again steals the show and even though he is aging Chan STILL delivers the goods action wise with his trademarked innovative, highly choreographed and amazing fight scenes.
Like in other "franchises" of late, this particular sequel does borrow and recycle bits from the first installment but does so without making the bits "old" or REALLY feel borrowed. Most notable of the borrowing is the "homage" to history with character name revelations (one REALLY obvious), one not-so-obvious. The other bits of course center around Roy and his usual want for women and the "odd couple" chemistry between Roy and Chon.

In Shanghai Knights, Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon find themselves teaming up again, but this time there is no princess to rescue. Instead, they head out to London to track down the person that murdered Wang's father, and to retrieve the imperial seal that was stolen from the Forbidden City. With the assistance of Wang's beautiful and resourceful sister Lin, they eventually uncover a conspiracy that will affect the power structure of the East and the West if it is allowed to succeed. Foreigners in a strange land, the dynamic duo must once more rely on Wang's quick hands and Roy's charming wits, not to mention the help of a few friendly natives, to complete their mission.
A relatively standard buddy film, Shanghai Knights follows the same winning formula with Chan handling the fights and Wilson cracking the jokes. The two of them definitely seem more comfortable around each other the second time around, and as a result the movie benefits from the familiarity between the leads. The Chinese-Singaporean singer Fann Wong plays Chon Lin, relatively new to the cinema, she does a good job in the role of Wang's sister and as Roy's love interest, she also got the opportunity to kick a few butts at the same time. Donnie Yen is again underused as the exiled renegade Wu Chan, and even though he is very convincing as a villain, the short screen time he has doesn't even begin to demonstrate his versatility as an actor much less an accomplished martial artist. Lastly, Aidan Gillen's portrayal of Rathbone is surprisingly likeable, rather than the stereotypical evil mastermind we are so used to seeing in action comedies these days.
