    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The best of Jackie Chan's American movies, a pleasant little action comedy that makes one wonder how other filmmakers could ever get it wrong. show more

    Longer on action than comedy. But with Chan's affable charm and stunning leaps, kicks and jumps, it's a good-natured and amusing spectacle. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Mr. Chan proves yet again that he has the virtuosic grace -- and goofiness -- of any of the great clowns of the silent era, and a complete refusal to abide by the laws of gravity. Do let us be clear, however, that the movie's plot, minus a few roundhouse kicks, is straight out of the Scooby-Doo playbook. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Chan's signature mix of screwball comedy and gymnastic derring-do landed him his own cartoon series a few years back, and The Medallion -- with its bumbling spies and bounding star -- is about as cartoonish as live action gets. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A disposable entertainment, redeemed by silliness, exaggeration, and Chan's skill and charm. I would not want to see it twice, but I liked seeing it once. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    A magic-meets-macho cop movie that's more gimmick than actual movie. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Since the stunts are sub-par and feature considerable computer help, the movie gives the impression that it's trying too hard to be campy and silly. show more

    Charles Savage Miami Herald

    The formulaic movie would be forgettable but inoffensive if it were anyone else posing for blue screen CGI effects. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Given the complete lack of chemistry between Chan and Forlani, their rather awkward lip-lock isn't worth $10 to see. Sadly, neither is anything else here. show more
