    It was ok but really it was just so stupid that it was likeable. The acting was poor and the action was good (for the most part). The entire plot was too generic though and lacks interest. Also it ended terribly.

    A terrible follow-up to a less-than-exciting first installment, SHANGHAI KNIGHTS feels very much like an unscripted effort made up as everyone went along. While a few of the bits do show some comic inspiration and, as always, Jackie Chan's fisticuffs are the stuff of cinema legend, it's too bad this piece plays out with so little enthusiasm.

    A hugely entertaining and more lavishly mounted follow-up to 2000's "Shanghai Noon," the high-concept East-meets-Western that first teamed top-billed duo, pic rides even taller in the saddle as a fleet and funny crowd-pleaser.
  3. Why would the writers bother with narrative when the story is just something that kills time, and brain cells, between feats and fists of fury?
