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!
