Urban Tulsa Weekly

Skip this one if for no other reason than to tell all those bigwigs in Hollywood that you won't stand for them serving you reheated piles of steaming crap. Send the message that they at least have to stir in some salsa or something.

| Original Score: 2/4

At times, it feels just as fresh and funny as the first film... which makes the periodic dead patches all the more difficult to bear.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Director David Dobkin and screenwriters Alfred Gough and Michael Millar (and probably Jackie Chan) not only know movies, they obviously love them %u2013 and that affection comes through in nearly every scene.

Everyone involved worked to make the sequel funnier and more entertaining - and they've succeeded.

This Jackie Chan/Owen Wilson sequel is a slack retread of Shanghai Noon -- but it's hard to get too upset about that.

It's a merry surfeit, lofted by calisthenic wow above the usual level for late-era Jackie and Wilson's mellow-gold delivery.

Shanghai Knights has the pacing and action of Chan's classic Hong Kong films, but with the polish and production values of a Hollywood project.

Like an Abbott & Costello comedy, Shanghai Knights is truly dumb, sometimes inconsistent, but awfully funny.

Laramie Movie Scope

One exquisite sequence has Jackie both dancing and fighting to the tune of "Singin' in the Rain." It is a wonderfully entertaining fight scene.

Jackie Chan's best film since 1992's Police Story 3: Super Cop.

Chan and Wilson have an easy chemistry together and director David Dobkin ... knows enough not to get in the way of that or the fight choreography.

Window to the Movies

At one point, Roy just flat-out tells Chon that, though they may not be accomplishing anything, he's really enjoying their current adventure. And that's pretty much the spirit of the movie.

A lazy and limp film, completely forgettable.

Shanghai Knights is a mess. A few ground rules would have helped immensely.

It's nearly impossible to shake the 'been there done that' undertones of the film.

This is one of those movies where people turn their heads and you hear a "swoosh"! That sound effect reportedly originated with a head-turn by actor Ben Kingsley. "In a stiff breeze," explained Owen Wilson, "Ben's nose could win the America's Cup."

There's about as much suspense here as in an Abbott & Costello movie (which this film frequently resembles).

The movie is hardly breathtaking or a completely successful endeavor, but considering what's been stinking up the box office over the recent weeks, it's quite a respectable diversion nonetheless.
