Shanghai Noon (2000)

Shanghai Noon (2000, USA) C-110m. SCOPE ** D: Tom Dey. Starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, Lucy Liu, Brandon Merrill, Roger Yuan, Xander Berkeley, Jason Connery, Yuen Biao. Amusing culture clash comedy - much like the one in Jackie Chan's RUSH HOUR - about a Chinese fighter (Chan), who must travel to the Wild West to rescue a kidnapped princess (Liu). The greenhorn must team up with a cunning cowboy (Wilson) to complete this task. Some funny ideas, quite engaging but film is overlong and the comedy outshines the action. For Jackie Chan fans.
