Probably the worst Jackie Chan vehicle to come around in his career...

With smooth, energetic direction by Gordon Chan and a love interest in the beautiful Claire Forlani, The Medallion shapes up as one of Jackie Chan's best American films.

The Medallion is an honest machine for making money, a meritorious entrepreneurial model.

For Jackie Chan... the moment of truth may have finally come. Nearly 50... the undeniably engaging star may be near the end of his shelf life as an action figure.

It's a lame slapstick actioner in which Jackie Chan lets CGI effects take the heat instead of his arthritic joints.

Amateurish effects, frenetic camerawork and ridiculous villains prevent Chan's Medallion from emanating true cinematic shine.

A special-effects bonanza, and a woefully underwhelming one at that.

The script is so simplistic that it's almost funny as a spoof.

The lesson to learn from The Medallion is that a wire- and computer-assisted Jackie Chan is better than no Jackie Chan but still a bad idea nonetheless.

With the cheesy effects and cartoony soundtrack, the film feels like an overgrown episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Unfortunately, it dresses Jackie Chan up with gadgetry and gimmickry.

Do you ever go into a movie that's so incomprehensible that you come out wondering just why someone put up the money to have it made?

Special effects rob the film of its main reason for being: Chan's amazing stunts.
