The honest China man and...an outlaw cowboy with issues? (by buzznzipp1995)
I honestly did not know what to expect, after seeing the 'pre' on the trailer. It was however a screamingly funny situation that started with an outlaw cowboy and a kindly Chinaman looking for a princess, in America. This duo when they came together was another one of those, 'fresh-eyed' originals. I get chills thinking about when I first saw it with a new friend that I had back in 2000. I still love this movie. The premise is a funny one, right off the bat these two are good at what they do, but are looked upon as mere screw-ups, by their employers, well at least Chan's <more>
Boss looked at him that way. But the coming to America to track the princess, meanwhile Wilson's character is a robber and a thief, who has an ongoing schmooze for the female kind. A Royal Chinese guardsman and a frontier cowboy, with issues. What a pair of jokers. But you can't help but love these two anyway. The cowboy, Owen Wilson who always seems to analyze things, and over talk them. Chan's character, is looking to do the right thing, for King and country, in cowboy territory. From the first collision with these two ill-fated men with separate missions, Wilson's cowboy, is thinking that he is in control, because the simple little China man does not understand the predicament. Only to the Cowboy's surprise, that the little visitor is very much, a knowledgeable one, if Wilson's character will stop 'jawwing' so much. One of the funnest parts to the story, was those two trading shots of liquor in the bathtubs at the 'Cat-house' then after going for quite a long time, with their drinking game, the woman opens the door to see how they are doing and they look up covered in bubbles, drunk as skunks, and with two tubs ...they are sharing the same one, laughing like crazy! They go through quite a few Miss-adventures leading up to their finale' at the church. This for me beside side-splitting laughter, superb directing and a look at some of the bloopers, makes this one a super-hit!I recommend for the discriminating sense of humor, that enjoys oddities and good clean fun! ****
A sort of "buddy cop" pairing of Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson, that makes fun of most of the western stereotypes and is a rollercoaster of adventures and laughs! Some great stunt work from Jackie as usual and the whole movie is pretty action packed as well so there's hardly a dull moment. Very very funny!
This is not the East! This is the West! The sun doesn't rise here it sets here! (by joshfedderson)
This a great and fun movie, and I have to say that Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson make a great and hilarious team. Forget the haters, this movie is one that I will watch again, and again. The story is fun as well, in 1880's China the Princess Pei Pei has been kidnapped and Chon Wang volunteers to rescue her and bring her back home. As he travels to America and to The Old West and Nevada he meets Roy O' Bannon a low down not so good Bandit/Cowboy. The two eventually come to terms, and they form this hilarious, unlikely duo of best friends. They eventually succeed in rescuing the princess <more>
and the two become heroes.Shanghai Noon is very fun, Jackie Chan and his fighting style is very cool and the fight scene with the Indian's is my favorite fighting scene. I like his name Chon Wang John Wayne anyone? Jackie's humor is hilarious. Owen Wilson on the other hand completes the duo with his humor and character, Owen brings his humor in with his sarcasm and saying's "No, you said wet shirt don't break, not piss shirt bend bar" that line made me laugh so much. I liked how they brought in the Old West it gives it it's own style.I also like the friendship between Chon and Roy, the two act well together. The story itself seems normal to me, Hero or Heroes rescue princess and saves the day. But Shanghai Noon makes the rescue story even better and more exciting. I have seen the second one Shanghai Knights, and I heard that they are making a third one called Shanghai Dawn, but it's been production for years...it's probably not going to happen, a shame really because I would have loved to see this duo again in a third adventure. 10/10 for Shanghai Noon
One of the most enjoyable lightweight entertainments in years! (by MovieAddict2016)
Pairing Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson together may seem the most unlikely thing to do since color televisions were first invented. But both of these actors are funny, in one way or another--Chan through his innocence, Wilson through his sarcastic, snide remarks. Wilson is as impressive an actor as he is a writer--he shares writing credits on such films as "Rushmore" and "The Royal Tenenbaums."Chan, on the other hand, is a better martial arts master than Jet Li and a more likable character actor than Chow Yun Fat whose disastrous film "Bulletproof Monk" made me <more>
want to split his head open to prevent him from ever making another American mainstream motion picture ever again .In "Shanghai Noon," Chan plays Chon Wang, a 19th century Chinese martial arts master who ventures out to Nevada in order to rescue the kidnapped Princess Pei Pei Lucy Liu , whose name is misused by Roy O'Bannon Wilson on at last one occasion.After Chon Wang mistakenly pronounced "John Wayne" meets up with Roy, the two decide to form an alliance and rescue the princess -- one for honor, the other for loads of money awaiting them upon her safe arrival back home in Imperial China's Forbidden City.Roy is a lousy wannabe cowboy who used to stage clumsy train robberies along with his band of thieves, who betrayed him and left him for dead. He offers his help to Wang, and tries to play it cool, but he can't -- after all, he's not a very convincing cowboy. But, as the smarmy wisecracking sidekicks always are, O'Bannon just wants money. But as his friendship with Chan grows stronger, he realizes that money isn't everything.Sounds routine, doesn't it? Well, it is, to a certain extent. But it succeeds due to a fine cast -- Chan and Wilson are extraordinarily good together; so good, in fact, that Chris Tucker is just a forgotten memory by the time that the film is over.It's a classic spin on the Old West formula; what "The Princess Bride" or "Shrek" did for fairy tales, "Shanghai Noon" does for Westerns. All the old cliches are poked fun at in a light way. And as great as Chan is, and as much as he carries most films he's in with his sweet charms and likable personas, Wilson comes across as equally likable as Chan.Chan's martial arts are usually the highlights of these films, but in this he proves he can do more than just kick -- he can be funny. Well, okay, he proved that in "Rush Hour" 1998 , but I like this better.The jokes in "Shanghai Noon" aren't "great," but I laughed a lot at this film. It's smarter than one might think, and is certainly one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in quite some time. Probably years. I wasn't expecting much especially because I wasn't an enormous fan of the sequel--see below , but if fun could be rated on a scale of 1 - 10, this would be an 11.I give this film nothing more than four out of five stars because it's not a great film on all critical levels. But it's certainly fun--likely more fun than any film you'll see for quite some time--and for that it will soon be earning a place in my sacred DVD collection.I must say that I wasn't a huge fan of "Shanghai Knights," the sequel to "Shanghai Noon," which involved Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon venturing to England in order to save Wang's sister. But after seeing this film I'm thinking I might just have to pay a small revisit the sequel again. 4/5 stars.John Ulmer
A fresh blend of genres often gone stale (by Doug-6)
Chan and Wilson outdo themselves every other minute in this goofy Western of theirs. Full of great action scenes, memorable lines "you said wet shirt don't break ..." and laughs all the way, it's a treat even after multiple viewings. A rich set of supporting roles enhances the fun; everyone involved looks like they're having the time of their lives. The sequel takes itself a bit too seriously but the original belongs in any collection if you like comedies, westerns, or martial arts. There's nothing really offensive except a few "colorful metaphors" but if <more>
you can sit through this without a few big grins you might want to check your pulse. It should be rare to give any movie a perfect score but I can't come up with any lasting reason to dock this one - 10 of 10.
Best martial arts movie...ever! sorry Crouching Tiger, Bruce Lee (by jem-1)
Shang Hai Noon is one of those rare movies that transcends several genres.The comedy is first rate with Jackie Chan playing straight man to Owen Wilson's fantastic "clown". For American movies, these are Jackie's best roles -- e.g. Rush Hour .The martial arts is some of the best I have ever seen. Having practiced MA for 16 years, I can say that this is the REAL THING. It's tough to pick a favorite fight scene; there are three specific ones which are each very special.The Horseshoe Scene, though, is one of the best examples ever of Jackie Chan's talent -- it's <more>
one of the most difficult forms in all of MA and he absolutely nails it.Fight coordinator Yuen Biao is significantly more imaginative and true to the Form than many any? of his colleagues, including Yuen Wo Ping many Jet Li's films and Crouching Tiger, Hidden [Wires, oops] Dragon . If there was any "wire-work" in this movie, it certainly wasn't obvious. I must state here that I am not a fan of the absolute brutality which is emphasized by Jet Li, Steven Segal or many of the others. If you enjoy brutality, this film isn't for you. While the martial arts is spectacular, it is just one component of a very good film. The direction and editing are quite notable. There are several parallel storylines which are interlaced very nicely. Also, several of the action scenes have parallel events which come together seamlessly. The whole movie has very nice "flow" to it.The acting is also first-rate. Roger Yuan, Xander Berkeley, and Walt Groggins are each great villains both believable and despicable . Lucy Liu is quite regal as well as drop-dead gorgeous as the princess Pei-pei.Even the music is great and well-timed to dramatize the corresponding sequences.I will say that some of the comedy is a bit 'cornball', but it's all in good fun.Overall, I would say this movie is quite simply a whole lot of fun.9 out of 10!
It seems this film has been out longer than just six years but I remember it was one of the first modern-day humorous martial arts films to be seen in North America. It also introduced a much wider English- speaking audience to the charm and talents of Asian star Jackie Chan, who now is well-known everywhere, even if he is getting up in age.This is considered one of Chan's better films and the setting certainly is different than normal for him: the American Old West. Good action scenes, some solid humor, fun characters and nice cinematography are all the pluses. Chan speaks English so <more>
there is no need for dubbing, either. The only "minus" I found was the final action scene going on too long, but that's typical of films. All in all, this is a very entertaining movie. Owen Wlson and Lucy Liu also are two big reasons this film became so popular.
Excellent "buddy" team that rivals that of Gibson & Glover (by Elswet)
Perhaps that statement is a bit of an exaggeration, but perhaps I'm on to something.The obvious natural and easy chemistry between Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson went a long way towards endearing this work into my collection. As a solid fan of Chan's work, I have a modest in comparison to hard-core fans collection of his works. In consideration, I have to say that...while this attempt, like his other American attempts, does not exhibit enough of that marvelous comedic fighting style we all know and love, Shanghai Noon is genuinely enchanting, action packed, earnest, and <more>
entertaining.Owen Wilson is a natural talent. He brings an honesty to his otherwise shifty personae in everything he does. Frankly, I'm surprised at some of the places he has succeeded in making this work for him. He is a true comedic force on the big screen. This work is a rival to other comedy/action teams, and bears a serious viewing, as I feel it is comparable to my second favorite comedy western, "Cat Ballou." In case you're interested, "Blazing Saddles" is my first.If you enjoyed this, I highly recommend the following:Jackie Chan: Mr. Nice Guy, Rumble in the Bronx, and Around the World in 80 Days 2004 Owen Wilson: Anaconda, The Haunting 1999 , and the Big Bounce. It rates an 8.2/10 from...the Fiend :.
I loved the movie. I think Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson is a great pair for a movie. I can't wait to watch the sequel Shanghai Knights The comedy is really good. I would watch it again in a heartbeat. Jackie Chan is funny, Owen Wilson is witty. I find it interesting how they would do a mix of Asian culture and western culture. I know this was made in 2000 but I think the time line is around 1800All in all, I would give it a solid eight.
