A 19th century Western. Chon Wang is a clumsy Imperial Guard to the Emperor of China. When Princess Pei Pei is kidnapped from the Forbidden City, Wang feels personally responsible and insists on joining the guards sent to rescue the Princess, who has been whisked away to the United States. In Nevada and hot on the trail of the kidnappers, Wang is separated from the group and soon finds himself an unlikely partner with Roy O'Bannon, a small time robber with delusions of grandeur. Together, the two forge onto one misadventure after another.Written by
Chon Wang is the Chinese translation and pronunciation of John Wayne. However, in the case of Jackie Chan's character, Chon represents his last name, while Wang is his first name. This represents the order Chinese names are presented. See more »
When Wang and Roy are talking in the jail cell, Roy mentions "...your friends on the train?" to Chon, as if he knows about the other guards. However, Roy couldn't have known, because he never visited the caboose during the robbery. See more »

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 1800
All in all, I would give it a solid eight.
