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.

As special effects reveal how super Eddie Yang is, they also reveal how ordinary Jackie Chan has become.

Hard to believe as it must seem, Chan has made a terrifically entertaining film, an action movie that delivers exactly what its audience wants, and a superlative entry into his growing canon of stateside films.

Jackie Chan has just as much fun in The Medallion as he does in any of his other films--but he doesn't need the overworked special effects used in it to accentuate his extraordinary talents.

The Medallion is a fun film, but a hokey story and schlocky special effects make it a dull gem in Chan's crown.

[Sammo Hung] has given Mr. Chan a couple of virtuoso sequences, beautifully framed and edited, showing that at 50 Mr. Chan can still fly through the air with the best of them.
