I really haven't much to say about this one. It was mildly entertaining, mostly due to having Jackie Chan in it. It may be worth a matinee.

For Those Who Have Seen It

It wasn't very good, was it? I suppose it may be possible to give unto Jackie Chan a partner, and have that increase the enjoyment factor of the movie. This wasn't an example of that. Also, the treatment by our LAPD protagonist of the arriving guest was both terribly unrealistic and quite annoying, and that's one of those combinations that can drive me out of a theater. Though it didn't near that threshold in this film.
