  • Garbage--fetid and painful.

  • ...if you like the strip and the anime, you'll probably like the movie as well. Everyone else, beware.

  • Bad Jackie Chan movie. It's not his style of fighting. He tries to do an anime adaptation but there's nothing for him to do.

  • Supposedly an adaptation of the popular Japanese animated series, it fails as an adaptation but succeeds as a fun Jackie Chan flick. The fight sequence where Chan becomes characters from the Street Fighter video game are not to be missed.

    A comedy based on a Japanese manga of the same name. The fight scenes are pretty good and makes good use of the surrounding props. Have a lots of gratuitous gunfire, shooting and beating up people, but somehow, no blood or very minimal blood is lost.

    Cheesy camp, no surprise coming from Jing Wong, Hong Kong's indisputable king of hackness. That said, this is just a big sack of dumb but fun moments. You just can't say no to a movie with Jackie Chan dressed as Chun Li from Street Fighter. Jackie might consider this his worst film (well, maybe the Rush Hour films these days) but when you're seeing the man getting hit by a gun in the face, it's humanly imposible not to laugh. Seriously, Jackie was genetically made for comedy.

    Very entertaining and lots of funny as the plot is similar to Under Siege. Jackie Chan was perfectly cast as Ryu Saeda, the lecherous and lethal adpated on the Manga / Anime in this live-action film. Despite all this City Hunter still manages to be crammed with action scenes, except of course in this film rather than simply staging a fight in a cinema we have Chan taking guidance from an on-screen Bruce Lee! A Street Fighter sequence where the characters morph in to various game combatants has to be seen to be believed and the end showdown between Chan and Richard Norton, although not one of his best in terms of martial arts technique, is easily his funniest. Add some great characters and for the male viewers, some gorgeous Hong Kong 'babes', and you have 90 minutes of sheer, non-stop FUN!
