Summary: Goofy in places, brilliant in others
Some scenes in this movie are brilliant... like Jackie's martial arts scene done in the style of "Singing in the Rain". There were kudos to several movies and actors as well, including Sherlock Holmes, Charlie Chaplin, and more. Sure, they play around with history a bit (okay, a lot) but it's all in good fun. Donnie Yen plays a great bad guy. Fam Wong is pretty hot too, hopefully we'll see more of her in future films.

The key to this film of course is Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson, who were great in Shanghai Noon, and are also very good here. They make a good comedy team, working well off of each other.
