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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.'
