MOVIE REVIEW: SKIPTRACE



Storyline:
A detective from Hong Kong teams up with an American gambler to battle against a notorious Chinese criminal.

Starring: Jackie Chan, Johnny Knoxville, Bingbing Fan

Pros and Cons:
I enjoy this movie but only because I've been a Jackie Chan fan.
The movie features his trademark comedy moves and gags, but as an action martial arts flick his moves against goons are now much slower than his past movies due to his age (respectfully so). The man is still doing his own stunts and the end credit routine showing the bloopers is always a treat for me.
Knoxville portrays a crook very believably well and the pair of opposite do attract and contrast sometimes to keep the story flowing.
Jackie Chan should join forces with all the other old stars such as Yuen Biao, Sammo Hung and make united flick franchises like R.E.D., The Expendables...
In conclusion, Skiptrace is a bit like From Russia to Hongkong in 80 days, with some bits of China tourism ads/commercials thrown in, plus regular Jackie Chan favourite flavours. If you enjoy Jackie Chan, watch it to support him.
