This H.K./U.S. co-production at times plays as if it were aimed at children, but more often simply seems to be aiming blind at whatever genre cliche the five credited writers fix upon in any given scene.

Cull your backlogged e-mail, catch up on magazines, suss out the employee payroll, but take something with you to the theater -- it would be a shame to waste 1 1/2 hours of your life actually watching the movie.
Chan has resorted to the use of two things I thought I'd never see in association with him: CGI and a stunt-man. And those elements are all that's needed to make this movie seem like every other low-budget, run-of -the-mill action film out there.
