John (Jackie Chan) and Roy (Owen Wilson) are back but in a different setting. Had a few laughs and the action was slightly better.

Shanghai Noon was more believable, even the scene where John back-stabs Roy over his sister, was done already in the first installment. Shanghai Knights is a decent adventure comedy set in London with a few good martial arts choreography.
