Review

Our Score
Visually authentic yet with a deliciously anachronistic script, this period western starring martial arts maestro Jackie Chan is a hugely enjoyable combination of buddy comedy and adventure. Sent to the States to rescue a kidnapped princess (Lucy Liu), Chan's Imperial Palace guard hooks up with laconic outlaw Owen Wilson, who proves to be his equal in the fish-out-of-water stakes. Whether using antlers, sheriff's badges or horseshoes to prise himself out of a tight corner, Chan is pure slapstick poetry in motion, falling off horses, getting riotously drunk and confusing slave-owning louse Roger Yuan and corrupt sheriff Xander Berkeley. This fast-moving caper gently sends up a well-loved genre and will provide a couple of hours of unrestrained entertainment.

Summary

A 19th-century imperial guard to the Emperor of China faces a clash of cultures when he is flung into the Wild West on a mission to rescue a princess who has been kidnapped by a renegade. In a bid to complete his quest, he teams up with a bumbling outlaw. Comedy Western, starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, Jason Connery and Lucy Liu.
