This movie is a double tease. There's only one thing we want from Jackie Chan: Really cool fight scenes. With props, like ladders and refrigerators. And amazing moves. Most of this movie is eaten up with plot revolving around a high-power biometric tuxedo and something about water. There's hardly any fighting.
There's only one thing we want from Jennifer Love Hewitt, and due to her insistence on a "No Nudity" clause in her contract, we don't get what we want from her, either.
This film falls low on the scale in the Jackie Chan oeuvre. As an action movie, it's moderately interesting. The parade of stock pieces is dutifully presented: Car chases, explosions, gunfire, and a plot for global domination. The suit provides some amusing gags, but with an anemic supply of Jackie Chan's over-the-top fights, there's no hook to draw the viewer in. It's like getting on a roller coaster called "Super-Giganto Spinning Vortex Of Death!", and it's only the Thunder Mountain Railroad. If you're on a quest to see every Jackie Chan film ever made, or are hopelessly infatuated with J-Love, you won't regret watching it. Non-obsessed viewers may not fare so well.
If you liked the movies below, you'll probably like this one (and visa versa):
