  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. Despite its contemporary touches Around the World in 80 Days is a satisfying slice of old-fashioned storybook entertainment.
  3. Only a devotee of the original film or a hardcore sourpuss could find serious fault with this world romp.
  4. Coogan and Broadbent are agile and expressive, but too much time goes to Chan's silly stunts. A colorful disappointment.

    A leaden excuse for family entertainment, loosely inspired by Jules Verne's 1873 novel, coarsened almost beyond recognition and dominated by Jackie Chan's comic martial-arts schtick.

    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. Represents everything that over-budgeted Hollywood can possibly get wrong in a period piece: It feels both long and slow, it's unfocused and self-contradictory, its generic characters are played too broadly, it's anachronistic..

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 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. Expand
