Jue di tao wang: I enjoyed it despite it's best efforts

Okay bear with me on this one, this is one of those films that I enjoyed yet I fully understand an argument against me doing so. You see Netflix decided to make another buddy duo with Jackie Chan, he's done great work with Chris Tucker, Owen Wilson and even Lee Evans before so it made sense. There is just something about him that screams buddy movie, so here they pair him with Johnny Knoxville which has been met with a very mixed reception. Do they have chemistry? I personally thought so. It tells a rather generic action movie story (As they tend to do) with lashings of comedy to keep it interesting and in my view both of these leads excel in that department. They both have great natural comedic timing despite not really coming from that background, Chan from martial arts and Knoxville from.......stunts? An old school buddy movie with over the top sequences, the odd couple dynamic and Chan's trademark comedy stunts/fight scenes I was enthralled but the films flaws are overwhelming. Many jokes miss their mark, some moments seem awkward, the fights are considerably tamer than we're used to (Chan's age no doubt a factor), and the whole thing has a really PG vibe to it. Truth be told the movie has a lot more flaws than I'm letting on but it's qualities outweigh them and I found it an enjoyable, fun, throwback movie. I understand the criticism, but I really enjoyed it and would love a sequel. The Good: Leads do a great job Eve Torres is ageing like a fine wine Some funny moments Awesome buddy movie dynamic The Bad: Littered with flaws in pretty much every area of the film PG cuteness hurts the film

Classic Jackie Chan Fun!!!

A detective from Hong Kong teams up with an American gambler to battle against a notorious Chinese criminal. I was never a huge fan of Jackie Chan but i did always find him a good actor and the fact that he is doing his own stunts was always impressive but lately his movies haven't achieved the impact that they once had and i get it times have changed and he is getting older for sure but honestly i just finished watching Skiptrace and i don't get the hate it received sure it's not a perfect film i mean the story and the comedy at times could have been a lot better but that doesn't mean that it was a complete disaster i honestly think that Jackie Chan's American Movies are way better than the ones he is doing in China and i'm just being honest. Skiptrace had a lot of great action scenes and there was a lot of fight scenes in like every 5 to 20 minutes and that is what i like about films like this , the stunt work was terrific and basically it's a Jackie Chan movie so what did you expect? His chemistry with Johnny Knoxville was amazing and although i think that Knoxville is not that great of an actor he works pretty well done for films of this level and he did a great job in The Last Stand a few years back where he starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. Also Eve Torres as a Russian chick named Dasha? Was pretty cool too so overall i found Skiptrace a very enjoyable film it had great action, great stunts and the humor for the most part worked plus the twist in the ending added a bit drama to it as well which i liked. (9/10)

I dont really like it.

I think, one of the worse camera positioning and movements ever. Firstly I could not see it, annoyed me very much.
