“Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson get together again in u0026quot;Shanghai Knights,u0026quot; the sequel to u0026quot;Shanghai Noon.u0026quot; Itu0026#39;s difficult to say which I like better, although the two seem a little more at home in u0026quot;Noon.u0026quot; u0026quot;Knightsu0026quot; is a movie not to be taken seriously. The soundtrack attests to that, being mostly British invasion rock from the 1960u0026#39;s. And there is a lot of historical fudging, not the least of which is Owen Wilsonu0026#39;s dialogue and attitude. He just seems so miscast as a cowboy. What keeps this movie from going wrong is Jackie Chanu0026#39;s amazing moves. Here he shows where he shines as an action-comedy star. And the martial arts styles of Fann Wong and Donnie Yen are no slouch either! So, never mind the anachronisms, just prepare to admire Jackie Chan.”
