Jackie Chan is a charmer! I cannot believe he received two Guinness World Records for this action packed interesting movie.
It starts with a fine note about some relics and then Jackie and his team who are befriended by a French mademoiselle set out on an adventure to find the French lady's great grandfather's remains but Chan and his team have other plans. As the story moves forwards, things start to squirt out and everything makes sense.
The action quotient for this movie is amazing and Chan has given chance to the females, too. It was interesting and at times funny, too. The plot is not much of a shocker if you have watched other Jackie Chan movies but with a speculation that this is his last action one, I give it 7/10.
Everything else with stunts, screenplay and direction is good; music is fine and numbing during action sequences. But as a whole, it is pretty enjoyable one compared to the recently released Hollywood movies.
Bottom line: It will make a perfect weekend movie with your kids.
WATCH OUT FOR: Jackie Chan, of course!
