Shanghai Knights Reviews

Frank Ochieng

If you can overlook the ridiculously transparent plot that is about as breakable as a pair of chop sticks then you would come to easily appreciate the razzle-dazzle artistry of this overzealous chop-and-sock kooky comedy

Knights will surely find an enthusiastic following before it gets to video.

Nowhere near as clever as it thinks it is.

[A] mundane sequel.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

Shanghai Knights doesn't have the verve Shanghai Noon did. It's long on attitude and short on plot or characterization.

On the heels of the threadbare Tuxedo, Shanghai Knights confirms there may be a chink in Jackie Chan's armor.

Passable, but rather disappointing.

A desperately unfunny action comedy, mirthless not only in its effect on an audience but in its whole aura.

This one seemed longer than before, which might not be the best compliment to the movie, but it gets laughs.

Combustible Celluloid

Chan's best and giddiest movie since the original Shanghai Noon in 2000, and maybe even 1994's Drunken Master II.

It's about stunts and gags -- and Shanghai Knights offers the most entertaining collection of any Chan film in years.

The feeling that drives Shanghai Knights is a general love of movie fun.

Shanghai Knights never comes close to the wacky surprise of Shanghai Noon.

This is a movie where you can just sit back and revel in it, warts and all.

Both Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan have done better work. It's called `Shanghai Noon.'

[Chan and Wilson] imbue Shanghai Knights with an aura of collegial high spirits, even when the writers leave them hanging.

Essentially a two-hour Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoon, only without the same rigorous character development, Knights plays to the strengths of its likable leads.

Shanghai Knights is a happy marriage of East and West that makes one long for Shanghai Morn, Shanghai Dawn and Shanghai Midnight.
