samskivert: Shanghai Knights (3)

22 February 2003

Jackie’s definitely getting old and can’t kick ass quite like he used to, but the dramatically increased production budget, addition of a funny white-boy side-kick (Owen Wilson, still playing the same character he did in his first movie, Bottle Rocket), and the liberal inclusion of lesser-known Chinese actresses and actors that do kick some serious ass, make for as fine a movie-going experience as Mr. Chan has put forth to date.
