Starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, Fann Wong, Donnie Yen, Aidan Gillen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Gemma Jones, Tom Fisher
Funny. Irreverent. Action-packed.
Sequel to the goofy fun western/Kung Fu mash-up, Shanghai Noon, set just past the turn of the 20th century, Jackie Chan returns as Chon Wang. Upon hearing of his father’s murder, Chon must follow the killer to London, but, unfortunately, he needs the help of his old friend, the untrustworthy Roy O. Bannon (Wilson). Now in London, the two pursue the culprits that killed Chon’s father, and find there’s a larger scheme at hand, involving the Queen and crown. Silly, anachronistic, action-packed film with Chan’s best American stunt work and Owen Wilson at his funniest.
