Shanghai Knights
2003
In this sequel to Shanghai Noon, dynamic duo Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon are in London to avenge the murder of Chon's father but end up on an even bigger case: It seems there's a plot in the works to kill the royal family.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

I can't fault Chan or Owen Wilson one bit for this mess. They're still doing what they do best, and Chan's fight scenes deliberately echo his prior hits in a nod to his impending retirement. But this film is otherwise an awful waste of time and 50 million dollars. The most irritating element is the relentlessly hyper soundtrack, which frequently tarnishes Chan's grace with a Looney Tunes idiocy. But the film is also bloated with anachronisms (acceptable) and plot holes (not). It even fakes the outtakes at the end. Sacrelige!
