Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
Jackie Chan Rumble in the Bronx, Rush Hour scores his third American hit in Shanghai Noon, a comedic western that provides the escapist pleasures of an old Saturday matinee. Jackie plays a palace guard who travels from the Forbidden City to the Old West to help rescue the Emperor of China's kidnapped daughter Ally McBeal's Lucy Liu. Once in the States, he forms an uneasy allegiance with an off-the-wall outlaw, Owen Wilson Bottle Rocket, and together they spend the rest of the movie trying to elude Xander Berkeley's extravagantly evil sheriff. Berkely's character is named Lee VanCleef in a nod to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that is only one of the film's many postmodern jokes. Of course, there are plenty of dazzling fight scenes in which Chan -- middle-aged now but still astonishingly agile -- performs the gravity-defying stunts for which he is justly famous. And the film looks great, with its backdrop of stirring vistas that recall the classic westerns. The real charm of Shanghai Noon, though, lies in the rapport between Chan, always a delightful comedian, and costar Wilson, whose anachronistic California slacker persona is offbeat and genuinely funny. Refreshing in its absence of high-tech weaponry, Shanghai Noon seems oddly innocent in comparison to most contemporary action films -- and a whole lot more fun.
All Movie Guide - Adam Goldberg
After the celluloid debacle known as Wild Wild West, moviegoers might be wary of a big-screen bonanza set in the Old West. However, Shanghai Noon breathes fresh air into the seemingly tired genre. It is an amalgamation of the Western, the buddy movie, and the kung-fu film in which "East-meets-Western." This effort marks the first time Chan is truly able to show his comic persona instead of being the kind of supporting player he was in Rush Hour. Chan is no longer the stern "Asian cop," but a very charming and charismatic hero with physical routines that rival those of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. While the film displays the usual arsenal of backflips and karate chops, Chan also loosens up for his American audience. His character gets high and drunk, and Chan even sleeps with a woman for the first time on film. Owen Wilson, meanwhile, proves once again that he has a unique gift for comic timing. As in the typical buddy movie, the unlikely duo serve both as perfect foils and perfect complements to each other. The result is a highly entertaining and surprisingly comic thrill-ride with some truly unforgettable moments -- most notably during a Chinese drinking game that occurs in a bubble bath. The film also captures the look and feel of the Westerns of yore, packed with everything from saloon fights to high noon showdowns. The script cleverly pokes fun at these classic clichés, however, while paying tribute to such earlier pictures as Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid. The average moviegoer will notice the obvious references (Jackie Chan plays a character name Chon Wang, often mistaken for John Wayne), while the Western devotee will have a field day trying to find the more obscure Wild West homages.

    One word: Hilarious

    Where to begin? You will laugh out loud through the entire movie. This movie is easily one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan make the perfect comedy team. I was literally crying from laughing so much. This movie has great replay value, so it is definately worth owning. The special features are also very cool (and there is a lot of them). Highly recommended. If you liked the Rush Hours (which were funny), then you will absolutely love the Shanghai's.

    Eastern, I mean Western Comedy

    Here, Lucy Liu (chinese Princess) is kidnapped by a chinese traitor and a marshal who belongs in jail.Jackie Chan plays an Imperial Guard who travels from the Forbidden City to the wild west and ends up joining up with a very enjoyable and easy going train robber Owen Wilson in order to rescue her. Even though a western, there are many martial arts opportunity for Jackie. My favorite fight is when Jackie uses saplings to fight a group of Crow Indians. The interaction of the two main characters is very enjoyable and fun. To be added to every martial arts/western/comedy library.
