  1. Coraci has given us a film that is not only amusing, but well-acted, and not only well-acted, but gorgeous. Micha Klein's animated transitions alone, which are used to signal each change in location, are wondrous and lovely to behold.
  2. 70
    Despite the rush to get everyone from place to place, director Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy) luxuriates in colorful visual detail and gives the locals their due.
  3. Only a devotee of the original film or a hardcore sourpuss could find serious fault with this world romp.
  4. 50
    Never as delightful and silly as it needs to be. The action is often manic, and there's a veneer of unapologetic corniness to it.
  5. Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    Just going through the motions here (and mild ones at that), both Chan and the movie should have stayed at home.
  6. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    A peppy, fast-moving, wafer-thin amusement that's fine for kids if you don't mind a lot of Three Stooges-style martial arts. For grown-ups, it's the equivalent of a 59-cent tin globe.
  7. It's been turned into a stupid kung fu movie.

    It's a beautiful movie, with stunning visuals and funny and silly Jackie Chan stunts. Also, the scene with Schwarzenegger as the Turkish prince is to die for. Expand

    I was hoping Around the World in 80 Days would bring more adventure, but it was a quick tour through just a few countries. Surprisingly it had lots of known actors sprinkled around the movie witch made it interesting, but besides that nothing really made it stand out. Expand

    It's a standard Jackie Chan film. Timing directed cheap action on a beautiful story. This movie it's just a pale shadow of the '56 movie.

    God, what a f.cking piece of sh.t. I'm a fan of Verne's novel, and they've just butchered it. Again. Oh well, that's Hollywood for you. De France and Jackie Chan are the only ones who actually do well. Possibly because they're not taking their roles seriously and they're just in it for the money. They were wasted on this crap.
