Overview

Though it's an English-language film, the fantasy action comedy The Medallion is one of the highest-budgeted movies to come out of Hong Kong. Cop Eddie Yang (Jackie Chan) and his partner, Interpol agent Arthur Watson (Lee Evans), are in pursuit of international human-smuggling crimelord Snakehead (Julian Sands). The partners get seriously wounded and a mysterious ancient medallion transforms them into superpowered warriors called Highbinders. The two halves of the medallion are supposed to grant eternal life when joined together by a powerful young boy who was born during a specific time in the Year of the Snake. The villainous Snakehead wants to gets his hands on both the child and the medallion, and the heros try to stop him. Aided by special effects and action choreography by Sammo Hung, Chan fights his way toward a violent conclusion with Snakehead that takes place in mid-air.. Claire Forlani plays Jackie Chan's love interest, the Interpol agent Nicole. Also starring John Rhys-Davies as Commander Hammerstock-Smythe.

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.
