DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - It's more of the same fun from Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. "Knights" is the same type of light, fun comedy as "Noon." The chemistry between Jackie and Owen seems to be even more natural. They make a great comedy duo.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Yet coated by a seasonal, waxy barrier against chapping, I took in Shanghai Knights with lips unforced in a smile of indulgence. This is an action-comedy sequel so indefatigably preposterous and farklemt -- as they say in certain Upper West Side saloons -- that it actually improves on the original.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "All things considered, however, Shanghai Knights is pretty mediocre entertainment, and probably better suited for home viewing than a trip to the multiplex.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Shanghai Knights has a nice mix of calculation and relaxed goofiness, and in Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson, once again teams up two playful actors who manifestly enjoy playing their ridiculous roles.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "The star interplay and anachronisms recapture some of the surreal spirit of the Crosby-Hope Road movies, and the end-credit outtakes are funny enough to sustain that getting-hoary device for at least one more picture.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Outstanding opinions! There are only a very small number of somewhat low opinions. The rest are very high. This indicates a movie with very wide appeal. Obviously, if you're even a little bit of a fan of this type of movie, you won't want to miss Shanghai Knights!

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Great Fun! It will undoubtedly be a big hit with fans. Very entertaining and very funny. The chemistry between these two guys was great in the first film and seems to be even better this time around. And yes, Jackie does some of his incredible stunt work. Most of it is stuff you've seen before, but there are a few fun new tricks. If you've been looking forward to this movie, you won't be disappointed.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Since the end of his adventures with Roy O'Bannon, Chon Wang has settled into an honorable life as the sheriff of Carson City. When he receives word from his sister of their father's death in Shanghai, he swears to bring the killers to justice. In need of the money Roy has been "investing” for him in New York, Wang tracks down his former sidekick at the Ritz Hotel, only to discover his partner's high living has squandered the entire amount. Since parting with Wang some months ago, Roy has been creating legends about himself through a series of books extolling the exaggerated adventures of "Roy O'Bannon and the Shanghai Kid.” But while the money may be gone, their friendship remains intact, as Roy joins Wang on a daring quest for honor and revenge in London.
