  • A disposable entertainment, redeemed by silliness, exaggeration, and Chans skill and charm. ( Read More )
  • E Film Critic

    The action bits are few and far between; the non action bits are omnipresent and interminable. May be a solid flick for 10 year olds, but even theyll be yawning through the nonsensical narrative. ( Read More )
  • And it isnt surprising that Chan sees some appeal in a story about a charm that can bestow eternal life and strength. ( Read More )
  • One of the Peking Opera trained superstars most mediocre films, rivaling last years God awful The Tuxedo for sheer messy filmmaking and brazen acts of tedium. ( Read More )
  • The Globe And Mail

    Casting Jackie Chan in The Medallion makes about as much sense as sticking Pamela Lee Anderson in a radio play its just such a waste of your stars principal assets. ( Read More )
