A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
At a Hong Kong shopping center, Buck Yuen's (Jackie Chan's) intuition warns him. He saves a robbery's loot and gets on television, ends up in Istanbul via South Korea, and accidentally becomes a spy. Fortunately, he knows Kung Fu.
When a Chinese rebel murders Chon's estranged father and escapes to England, Chon and Roy make their way to London with revenge on their minds. Chon's sister, Lin, has the same idea, and uncovers a worldwide conspiracy to murder the royal family but almost no one will believe her.Written by
Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays a young boy who supposedly grows up to be the actor Charlie Chaplin. The real Charlie Chaplin was born in 1889, two years after the movie is set (1887). See more »
When Lord Rathbone revealed an automatic Gatling gun and said
it was British ingenuity he was partially incorrect. The Gatling gun was a hand cranked weapon that was created by Richard Gatling, American, in 1861 and patented May of 1862. The first automatic, self-powered machine gun was invented by an American born Briton, Sir Hiram Maxim in 1884 and first displayed in 1885. The Maxim gun bared little resemblance to the Gatling gun. Automatic Gatling style guns did not come about until the 1940's. See more »
I saw this movie only to accompany my children, but I absolutely loved it! Had never seen a Jackie Chan movie, but now I want to see Shanghai Noon too, so we will rent that one. There were several adult references and I don't mean sexually, but funny references only adults would remember. Be sure to stay for the credits as the outtakes are great. I want to see it again!
