    Kick Some Booty!

    I’ve seen better Jackie Chan movies than The Medallion like Shanghai Knights and Rush Hour. In the latter two movies the story line is much better and more realistic. The plots are more likely to happen to people and affect them in real life. I give The Medallion three stars because of comedy performance and unique stunts. Although the stunts in The Medallion are Jackie Chan’s own, they are sped up in the movie which makes them look farfetched and hard to follow. If you would like to see the good guy and the bad guy chasing each other over China, Ireland, and England, trying to get a powerful medallion of immortality, than The Medallion is worth checking out.
