There's some charm in the pairing of Wilson and Chan, but the heart of the film is lost among tired slapsticky humor. Jackie Chan is best during the choreographed action scenes and Owen Wilson gets a few solid one-liners in, but the film feels flatter than it should be.

Long and Unfunny, Despite Great Leads

It's one loud action scene after another with Shanghai Noon, sandwiched with racist Asian jokes and lots of unfunny dialogue. When the occasional gag is funny, it's worth a good chuckle,. But these gags don't come nearly often enough, which is unfortunate because despite a less than intriguing plot, the two leads (Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan) really give it their all in this film, though it's not enough to save it.

Chon Wang, an imperial guard from China, travels to America in order to rescue Princess Pei-Pei, whom has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Wang gets caught up in a train robbery, which through a strange series of events, Wang becomes friends with outlaw Roy O'Bannon, whom are now both determined to rescue the princess.

There are loads of action scenes, but ...

Shanghai Noon review

Jackie Chan is the loyal Chon Wang and Owen Wilson is the fugitive Roy O'Bannon. The film is a mixture of action/western/comedy elements with a light plot. The only small fleck I find is the length of some scenes. The cinematography was surprisingly striking and the humor was impressive. Even Jackie Chanís facial expressions make you smile. The stunts were astonishing, even Owen Wilson did a little in the train scene with the logs. Lucy Liu as the princess did some nifty fight scenes. It was fascinating to see Jackie Chan utilizing various weapons even from a horse shoe which was very innovative. There were some religious components, themes of friendship and determination. Overall, this was a compelling film for all ages to enjoy.

Great comedy

I have no idea where the idea came about to team Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan, but I'm really glad they thought of it because the Shanghi series is very funny. In "Shanghai Noon," Chan plays Chon Wang, a 19th century Chinese martial arts master who ventures out to Nevada in order to rescue the kidnapped Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu), whose name is misused by Roy O'Bannon (Wilson) on at last one occasion.
After Chon Wang (mistakenly pronounced "John Wayne") meets up with Roy, the two decide to form an alliance and rescue the princess -- one for honor, the other for loads of money awaiting them upon her safe arrival back home in Imperial China's Forbidden City.
Roy is a lousy wannabe cowboy who used to stage clumsy train robberies along with his band of thieves, who betrayed him and left him...
