A loyal and dedicated Hong Kong Inspector teams up with a reckless and loudmouthed L.A.P.D. detective to rescue the Chinese Consul's kidnapped daughter, while trying to arrest a dangerous crime lord along the way.
At a Hong Kong shopping center, Buck Yuen's (Jackie Chan's) intuition warns him. He saves a robbery's loot and gets on television, ends up in Istanbul via South Korea, and accidentally becomes a spy. Fortunately, he knows Kung Fu.
A hero cop accidentally leads his team into a trap from which he is the only survivor. Drowning his guilt in booze, he is eventually assigned a new younger partner who turns out to have his own secrets.
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
A sign is visible during one of the Carson City scenes during the latter part of the picture showing the words 'Bulldog Drummond's'. He was a fictional British detective that first appeared in a 1920 novel, almost forty years after the movie's setting in 1881. See more »

Well, best of luck to you. Guess this is what your people call "sayanora." Looks like Fido's giving you some problems there. You want me to, uh, give you a hand?
No, I can do it.

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.
