    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Coraci has given us a film that is not only amusing, but well-acted, and not only well-acted, but gorgeous. Micha Klein's animated transitions alone, which are used to signal each change in location, are wondrous and lovely to behold. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Just going through the motions here (and mild ones at that), both Chan and the movie should have stayed at home. show more

    A tatty but good-natured time-passer. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Not even Chan's imaginative fight choreography redeems this folly. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    With the exception of one masterfully choreographed - and improbably bloodless - martial-arts gang fight, the new version of Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days is one of the lamest remakes of a classic film I've ever seen. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Any resemblance between Jules Verne's marvelous science fiction novel or Mike Todd's enjoyable 1956 movie is pure happenstance. This is simply a Jackie Chan movie pitched to youngsters who enjoy slapstick fights and goofy caricatures. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    None of this amounts to anything more than goofy fun, but that's what the ads promise, and the movie delivers. show more

    Peter Debruge Premiere

    Kids deserve an adventure movie like this, one that might inspire them to become junior inventors and ignite their interest in the world's many wonders. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    Brightly colored, spiffily designed and easy to sit through in a harmless Disney sort of way, but the comedy never accumulates any momentum. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Coogan and Broadbent are agile and expressive, but too much time goes to Chan's silly stunts. A colorful disappointment. show more
