Critic's Review Heading
Good
Shanghai Noon looked like a disaster waiting to happen -- formula piled upon formula, cheap gag piled upon cheap gag, Jackie Chan in another buddy action-comedy. But thanks to Owen Wilson, it's almost possible to forget you're watching a formulaic buddy action comedy. Chan's ability to hold up his end of the buddy partnership is never in question; his stunt work is again in top form. Wilson's character, however, is a great, goofy comic creation as well. Chan and Wilson simply make Shanghai Noon loads of fun.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

When the lovely Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu) is kidnapped from China, the Emperor dispatches three of his most fierce and noble Imperial Guards to deliver the ransom in gold to her kidnappers in America's Wild West. Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) isn't among the chosen. However, he manages to tag along anyway by offering to carry the luggage for his uncle, the Interpreter.

Heading through the Nevada desert by train, the Imperial entourage is hijacked by a motley crew of would-be train robbers calling themselves the Roy O'Bannon gang. Their eponymous leader spends more time self-promoting than pulling the heist. Some quick martial arts moves by Chon mean the thieves lose the loot, but they also leave Chon alone in the desert.

In the meantime, because of the bungled train robbery, Roy (Owen Wilson) has been abandoned by his former partners in crime and buried up to his neck in the desert sand. He's to be a feast for a flock of ravenous vultures, a gathering of which is already sampling the banquet.

Trekking through the wilderness, Chon serendipitously comes across the helpless Roy, who begs to be extricated from his dire situation. Chon obliges by providing a set of chopsticks and suggests Roy dig himself out -- no hands! As Chon continues his journey, he takes on a party of Crow warriors to save a small Native American boy and finds himself a hero with the boy's Sioux tribe. Fringe benefits include a peace pipe smoke-up, a horse with some bizarre habits, and a beautiful wife named Falling Leaves. When Chon sets off again to rescue the princess, all but the peace pipe come with him.

An unexpected run-in with Roy in a saloon lands the two in jail. But upon hearing that Chon's mission involves not only a beautiful princess but also a trunk of gold coins, Roy becomes his new best friend. Chon engineers a brilliant jailbreak and the unlikely partners head to Carson City, where they face brawls, bordellos, treachery, and plenty of what Roy calls "crazy, girlie, kick-fightin'" as East meets West in a battle for honor, royalty, and a fortune in gold.
