Shanghai Noon sees a clash of a Genji and a Mccree main. These two make a powerful combo and Ana nano boosts Genji for a nanosword while Mccree looks at his watch and gets a team wipe, all in time to get the shiny golden gun and gambler skin.

It was funny enough to keep me entertained but nothing unique, especially at a time saturated with buddy-comedies and Jackie Chan.

Set in a different location and time period than most action comedies, but other than that, it's not really anything special.

Fast paced, and silly, a product of the turn of the century and a showcase once again for Jackie Chan as a "buddy cop"

When I first saw this as a kid, I laughed a lot and loved every minute of it. Many years later, nothing has changed my mind about the film at all

Jackie and Owen have a a unique chemistry. It's not romance, but it's just something else.

"Shanghai Noon" is a Western/martial arts film. It's exactly what you expect. Add in Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson as the lead actors and it becomes even more predictable. The excellent play on words contained in the title is an overture for the comedy that follows. The plot is simple but effective as two opposite men are placed into a situation in which it is natural for them to pair up to save the day. Why not also represent the Buddy-Cop genre as they work together to save the day. Fans of Westerns and martial arts films will enjoy the many tongue-in-cheek nods to these genres. And fear not, they do mispronounce Princess Pei-Pei's name as Pee-Pee, but only once to keep it from getting old. The acting isn't anything special but it matches the expectation of a comedy. Personally, I prefer "Rush Hour" but "Shanghai Noon" is a nice departure from Jackie Chan's typical films.

Does this movie have a story? Yes, but it's kinda dumb. Still, the movie itself is entertaining as hell, and Chan teaming up with Wilson might be the best decision since teaming him up with Tucker. One of the most rewatchable movies I've ever watched.

Pretty good actioner cum ha-ha when a Chinese palace guard (Chan) ventures to the Old West to save a kidnapped princess (Liu). Wilson primary purpose is to hold the hands of the American audience to take us through this adventure ("don't be nervous, here's an American face to console you in the face of all these Chinese faces", which would be sort of an insult were it not grounded in so much truth), which is to say his role is entirely unnecessary. Moving right along, the film is a very different Western indeed. Chan interacts with some Indian tribes, for instance, some positively, some not (action ensues), and you don't see that much in any film, much less a Western. Then he meets the locals at a Wild West saloon (action ensues) all to ultimately address the touchy issue of forced Oriental labor for the railroads. Its a lot meatier than its action comedy roots. And the action, typical ala Chan, is inspired.

We need goofball movies like this to keep us all honest. Wonderful cinematography, great costume design, comic acting was spot on. Not for folks who don't like slapstick. Great for those of us who love to see feet & fists beat out bullets.
