5-0 out of 5 stars Funny and Thrilling!
Shanghai Noon is not one of the most spectacular action movies of Jackie Chen, but sure is one of the funniest. Definitely worth seeing!

Despite of the fewer fighting scenes, Jackie Chen makes sure that you find every fight exciting, funny and real. (Of course! It's what Chen famous for!) He also added more diverse and cross-cultural jokes in, which he started doing since Rush Hour, make the movie funnier and more colorful.

Jackie Chen has a great cast team. I can't think of anyone else could be better than Owen Wilson as the western partner of Jackie Chen. Even the minor roles were well chosen, such as other Imperial guards and the Indians. None of them makes any of the fighting seems fake. The princess, on the other hand, could have been played better by someone else. Lucy Liu is a good actress, but not a perfect candidate for this movie. She was not funny enough and she speaks as if she is reading a script. But this didn't effect the rating of the movie. Over all, It's still a 5-star movie!

If you like Shanghai Noon, I would also recommend Once Upon China and America (with Jet Li), which is an earlier version of Shanghai Noon. It's more serious (but still have some jocks) and has a different fighting style - you would know what I mean if you are a Jet Li fan!

5-0 out of 5 stars best comic duo eva!
I'll be honest I thought this movie would not be funny or interesting, after seeing it I was proved wrong. Ok the beginning was a bit boring, but as soon as Jackie meets Owen it starts to get good. There r some hilarious scenes (check out the bathtub scene!)and action packed scenes. This movie has the right amount of action and comedy. I now think that Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson are the best duo since Laurel and Hardy, they r brill! You would think that Chan would be the star here but no, Owen Wilson steals the show, proving to be hilarious and he is obviously talented. Im relieved to hear there will be Shanghai noon 2 which will be great. I agree with a previous review, some of those stars are awarde to Owen. Overall, shanghai noon is one of the best films in the last year, and the outakes are sooooo funny. Enjoy watching it! p.s if you have seen the movie read on: well done Owen for not dying in an action flick!

4-0 out of 5 stars cowboy baby!
a cowboy/outlaw type and jackie chan team up to save the chinese princess.jackie chan gives his best ever performance here.problem is ,hes followed around by this gay cowboy who talks too much.if thata not bad enough,he talks like a modern day gay guy and not a cowboy at all.ive never seen a cowboy more in touch with his feminine side.owen wilson?or something like that.he is very obnoxious.there are many good fight scenes.i dont know why this one wasnt a bigger hit.they made asequel based in england but it totaly sucked.

2-0 out of 5 stars Goofy fun
This is good, silly entertainment. It's for the days when you don't want to think much about what's going on, and don't want to watch movies where people undress.

That's about all, though. Owen Wilson's wide-eyed naivete was over-used, and Chan's athleticism and physical comedy were under-used. The plot was adequate to keep the characters moving and to alternate between bad guys every now and then. Still, it's not the kind of movie that will keep you up late with its deep philosophy - or even with its bad puns.

Perhaps the funniest scene is the bathtub drink-off (no nudity, lots of bubbles). On the second thought, maybe it was the bloopers during the final credits.

If you're determined to watch something but can't find anything good on, maybe this is what you wanted. Set your expectations properly, and enjoy.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Surprisingly Funny and Highly Entertaining Film!
I am usually drawn to drama, classic cinema or film noir as opposed to modern comedies, mainly because most seem to rely on profanity, toilet humor or obnoxious characterizations. A good friend recommended "Rush Hour" and I immediately knew I was going to become a Jackie Chan fan... I then got "Rush Hour 2" and then this film....... how refreshing to watch a film high on action, loaded with comedy and having so much genuine humor. ALL the lead actors in the film were wonderful in their parts. No weak areas here. This is NOT "Gone With the Wind", but as zany and wonderful comedy, it's a modern classic in my book.

The photography and the transfer is superb by the way.. and cinemeatographer should be commended for the beautiful work. Also excellent was the music score that was consistantly appropriate...... although the popular songs leaned towards the "rap" audience and I thought a few modern country artists might have worked better here... not to worry, the pop music did not get in the way of the overall quality of the film.

This is a terrific and charming film. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Competent sequel, I guess
We have had, by turns, hockey masked killers, Halloween masked killers, a demon from the underworld with nails in his head, a guy in a tacky sweater with razor blade claws on his hands, and a malevolent Leprechaun gracing the big and little screens. Well, someone in Hollywood thought, why don't we make a bunch of movies about an evil genie? We'll get some guy to wear a whole body latex suit, complete with horns, and throw him in front of a camera. Then we'll get a bunch of stars who will work for nothing to serve as cannon fodder, throw a script together, and watch the money roll in. The idea that eventually led to the "Wishmaster" films probably came about in a way similar to this description. And that's acceptable. There are plenty of us who will shell out bucks to rent or buy a movie about an evil genie trying to trick people into asking for three wishes so he can take over the world. I'd like to start out by reviewing the first "Wishmaster" and then moving through the list to the fourth installment, but I haven't watched the first two. Sorry about that. I'll get around to those two eventually. Actually, coming into the series half way through can be a good thing; I don't have any prior expectations to compare this movie against.

"Wishmaster 3" takes place on a college campus where Diane (A.J. Cook) attends classes with her boyfriend Greg (Tobias Mehler) and friends Katie (Louisette Geiss) and Billy (Aaron Smolinski). A.J. has serious problems, not the least of which is reconciling herself with the death of her parents. Then she worries about her relationship with Greg. She also works with an archeology professor named Joel Barash (Jason Connery) who acts strangely around her. Still, Cook's character is a good student giving serious consideration to graduate school when disaster strikes. While mucking around Barash's office, she spies a jeweled box with strange Arabic inscriptions on it. Diane manages to open the box, thus releasing the evil genie (John Novak). She doesn't know it at the time, but Barash soon discovers what she did when the genie confronts him. The magical creature dumps Joel's body in a coffin and then assumes his physical form. The viewer knows Barash is really the genie because he's constantly cracking his neck in what looks to be a very painful manner. Regrettably, the students don't know anything about the transformation.

The genie that is Barash now begins to seek out students and teachers who will ask him for wishes. The whole idea, apparently, is that the race of djinn (genies, essentially) will take over the world if this genie can get the person who released him, in this case Diane, to make three wishes. This is the overriding goal of the genie, so most of the film consists of Joel Barash trying to track down Diane. In the process, he has fun granting wishes to other people. Sadly, these poor victims don't realize that a wish must be expressed carefully and exactly or the genie will distort the request into something disastrous. Heck, these people don't even realize Joel Barash is a genie. He tricks them into wishing for something and then turns on them. When Diane finally figures out what is going on, she and her friends read up on genies in the school library. Who said college kids aren't smart? By learning about the weaknesses of these evil beings, Cook's character knows she must summon up the Archangel Michael to combat the genie. This angel brings with him a huge sword capable of sending the genie back where he came from. What follows consists of chase and battle scenes between Diane, the angel, and the genie.

I liked "Wishmaster 3" for what it was. The gore is good for a low budget sequel. We see a kid flying through the air and landing on some horns (don't ask), a wish for losing weight gone horribly wrong, and another wish concerning a broken heart that is equally gooey. The acting isn't too bad, with Connery and Cook doing the best job. "Wishmaster 3" even moves along at a breakneck pace, always a good thing for low budget movies. What doesn't work as well largely centers on the Archangel Michael, a character that just doesn't feel like a good fit in the film. He doesn't really do that much, either, since Diane is the one who must ultimately battle the genie. Another problem is one you need to pay attention if you wish (no pun intended) to see it. The whole movie takes place on a college campus during the semester yet we rarely see anyone around. Check out that car chase on campus-where are all the people? The characters might as well be roaring through a ghost town. The university I go to always has someone driving or walking around, even during the summer. Not at this university. Director Chris Angel probably had problems digging up enough students to provide background. Too, college students would probably yell, goof off, and create a general ruckus. But it is a noticeable problem.

Extras on the disc include a commentary from Angel, Jason Connery, John Novak, and Louisette Geiss, some storyboards, production notes, a short "making of" featurette, bios, and a trailer. Not bad for a low budget clunker, eh? "Wishmaster 4" isn't as good as this one, which, depending on your attitude probably isn't surprising. I really need to go back and watch the first two, I think, since horror franchises usually start with a bang before tapering off into banality. Yet, I liked this film in a way, and would definitely watch it again.

3-0 out of 5 stars SEAN PLEASE KEEP JASON AT HOME FOR A WHILE
The third entry in the Wishmaster series pales in comparison to the first two, and the main reason is that Andrew Divoff isn't around to play the Djinn. Divoff possessed such a canny sense of evil and enjoyment that Jason Connery just can't evoke. Connery, a nice looking fellow, doesn't possess a third of his father's charisma or screen presence. A. J. Cook (Final Destination 2, Ripper: Letters from Hell) is a stoic heroine, but she too doesn't possess the fierce determination the previous Wishmaster girls have shown. Tobias Mehler as the stalwart Greg (and St. Michael the Archangel) is okay, but nothing to write home about.
The plot doesn't explain how the jewel got back in the case; at the end of the second movie, it just disappeared. There is no mention of the 1000 souls and the Wishmaster doesn't really get into his granting of the wishes. And since when was the sword of St. Michael able to kill the Djinn. There is no mention of this in the previous two films.
The third installment lacks the visceral energy and clever dialogue evidenced in the first two films, and director Chris Angel's pacing isn't as tight. I'll watch the fourth simply to see how the series turns out, but I was admittedly disappointed in this one.
Sean, keep Jason at home until he captures at least some of your talent!

1-0 out of 5 stars OH,YEAH,OKAY,SURE?
A cast of 10, a collage campus you can use during spring break.
The only creativity in this picture was when someone found the Djinn's costume in an old wardrobe department.
After this I refuse to see the fourth one,lmao!!

Never paid attention to the fact that the Djinn neded 1000 souls first.

But what the hell, had a couple real taste bud babes in it, and that is all you really need for a great movie, right?.....

1-0 out of 5 stars Mindless Drivel
I love horror films when they are well done, but Wishmaster 3 doesn't come close. The storyline is run-of-the-mill; essentially a weak excuse for a monster to kill a lot of people until he's finally done in himself in the final minutes of the film. OH, sorry, I gave it away!

So if the plot stinks, the draw's gotta be either the acting (it isn't!), fabulous babes (not particularly), or most likely, the special effects. And these are just downright laughable. Anyone with the most rudamentary knowledge of how these things are done can tell immediately; but more importantly, nothing looks remotely real. When the Wishmaster, in his earthly form (which he dons most of the time so we're even cheated of seeing much of the Djinn!) is struck by a car and re-animates, the viewer can only giggle at how obvious and poorly done it is. And camerawork plays to this, too; cutting away suddenly when the tricky special effects should be used--such as when the Wishmaster regenerates his amputated hand from a glob of unconvincing red latex and goo to the actor's hand--no transition at all, but instead a camera cutaway and presto, it's a hand again.

Spare me, spare yourselves, make your wish to avoid this inane movie...

1-0 out of 5 stars Why does this movie suck?
I own the first 2 Wishmaster films and they are supremely excellent. I got this one, 'cause I figured "What the hell?". How wrong I was. This movie was about as interesting as root canal. Whoever that guy was playing the Djinn should've read up about the character more. I agree with a previous review...give Andrew Divoff what he wants so that he'll make this Wishmaster entry a good one. Or at least a decent one. From what I've seen of Wishmaster 4, it seems as though it might be a bad one as well. Hopefully for Wishmaster 5, Divoff will return for one last Djinn movie. We can all hope, right? ... Read more

...the bullet before compromising Michael Caine into this. But, what else could you expect from trash made for TV (sorry for the redundancy).

2-0 out of 5 stars The movie is ok, but the non-stop background music
My God, what a stupid background music non-stop and so loud to almost cover all the dialogues in this movie. I mean, NON-STOP background music and very unsuitable interpretation of the plot, the scenario, no matter what, when, how, why, that disturbing horrible, got-nothing-to-do-with the movie itself background music just kept going and playing not matter what. Drive me nuts just like the other movie, "the perfect storm", the non-stop, totally unrelated background music just play on, so loudly, so unstopable, drive you nuts! Please, this is not a Cartoon, you don't have to emphasize any movement or whatever with a music to get the dramatic effect. This is movie, folks, the music is supposed to enhance the moment that is needed by employ some sound effect. But how could this old concept of 60' Hollywood musical techs would still so stupidly and so dominantly and, so blindly used to wreck so many supposed to be good movies? Well, Suh, that is beyond my pea brain.

4-0 out of 5 stars GOOD POST-COLD WAR THRILLER
The BULLET TO BEIJING is an intelligent Ian Flemming-type of spy thriller, except post Cold War.

Filmed around the world by a Canadian-Russian production company, Michael Caine leads a terrific cast of actors who put on a top rate, understated performance. Basically, Caine plays a just forcibly retired British M-1 spook who has been put into a midlife crisis by his scaling down intelligence agency. Looking for work, he winds up in Russia working for former KGB people purporting to save the world from a deadly new bio-toxin which is on its way to North Korea through China. Caine's mission is to stop the toxin from getting there.

There is plenty of intrigue and just about the right amount of sex-by-implication, off camera. Also starring in the movie is Jason Connery (Sean's son) who does a decent job of acting as a young British-Russian agent trying to find his place in the new world order.

While not great, this movie tells its story better than the high priced DIE ANOTHER DAY.
For those wishing to see a good old fashioned spy thriller freshened up for the post-Cold war era, see BULLET TO BEIJING.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is one sad movie
This movie is little more than a parody of the espionage genre. Ridiculous and extremely confusing plot, stereotypical characters, pitiful screenplay, poorly filmed ... I could go on and on but what would be the use? An example of the pathetic story: Michael Caine and Jason Connery are tossed off a train in the middle of Siberia. After five minutes of walking along the train track they suddenly find themselves in an airport outside a teeming city, where they get the last two seats on an airplane. Then, the airplane runs out of gas and serenely lands in a cow pasture where all the passengers grumpily exit the plane. This was just one of a series of scenes that were not only mindless but unexciting.

This movie was so bad it defies belief! Spend your money elsewhere!

5-0 out of 5 stars underrated, enjoyable and a sting in the tail
A believable glimpse into the self-serving British beauracracy and the modern Russia.
Caine is Caine - superb. The younger Connery is obviously going places.
An informative romp through Russia with subtle nuances and ultimate treachery in store.

4-0 out of 5 stars Saw the movie, THEN read the book
I saw the movie before I read the book. This is a typical adaptation of a long novel. Yes, the novel was better, but the novel was DIFFERENT! A similar situation occurs with The Caine Mutiny as well as The Godfather. Written stories allow you to explore aspects of character and situation that just can't be effectively portrayed in film. In film, you can't have the character's thoughts effectively presented. The film concentrated on the relationship between Will and Pearce, while the book actually had two plots-Will and Pearce and Will and Annie Kate. Instead of comparing book and film, treat each as seperate entities and enjoy them independently. In this case, the movie was enjoyable.

3-0 out of 5 stars This movie could have been better
I have seen this movie about 6 times and have read the book a million times and I know good enough to see that this could have been a even greater movie. Pat Conroy seems very disappointed that the movie did not turn out as good as he thought it was going to be.

3-0 out of 5 stars Wrong lead
Michael Biehn should've been the lead as the director originally wanted. It was okay, but it would've been better.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELENT
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I'VE EVER SEEN. SO TRUE TO LIFE.
ACTING IS SUPERB. FIVE STAR ALL THE WAY.

2-0 out of 5 stars Almost had it, but stumbles badly in the stretch
No movie under six hours could have captured anywhere near the complexity and subplots of Pat Conroy's novel about life in a military academy. For that I was very forgiving about what what cut out, even painfully so. We see no flashbacks of the main characters first three years, there was almost nothing about his passion for basketball, and the love story could have been a movie in itself.

But things had to go, and rather than treat them badly, I have no resentment for what they left out. The movie does concentrate on some important things however, and for awhile, does it well. We see the often cruel treatment upperclassmen give underclassmen, and can see the reasoning why this seems to be necessary. It is the overriding theme of the book, and shows the givers and takers of the harrassment very well.

It also does tackle one of the important subplots, which is the treatment of the first black recruit to the academy. The way the recruit was treated is shown in all of it's frightening detail. David Keith, as the assigned mentor to the recruit, does his job perfectly here by not showing too much sympathy.

But then it all crashes down by trying to come up with a clean, Hollywood, more upbeat ending. The worst sin is the handling of the Pignatello character to make it much less tragic. To leave out what happens after the court martial is to take away one of the dramatic points of the story. With that said, the ending was also much too neat. The way it is handled fails to illustrate the parallel love-hate relationship the main character has with the academy.

This was far too personal a story to be glossed over like this, and I wish Pat Conroy had had more pull to get it done right. He should have chosen the Larry McMurtry route and got the story filmed as a mini-series. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Middling World War II Action-Adventure
By no means is "Casablanca Express" a great movie, but it is passable entertainment if you're not too discriminating and can accept some lapses in logic. Jason (son of Sean) Connery and Francesco (son of Anthony) Quinn are assigned to protect Winston Churchill who's travelling through North Africa on the Casablanca Express during World War II. The Germans are tipped off about Churchill's presence on the train and soon paratroopers capture the train and Churchill. It's up to Connery and Quinn (and the comely female agent Lorna) to rescue Mr. Churchill. Glenn Ford and Donald Pleasence have extended cameos as members of the Allied military brass in this European production. "Casablanca Express" makes a nice companion film to the superior "The Eagle Has Landed," wherein a team of German commandos attempt to assassinate Prime Minister Churchill on English soil.

The DVD, from Front Row, is another one of their budget releases, so don't expect too much. There are chapter breaks and biographies/filmographies for Connery and Pleasence, though the filmography for Pleasence, a prolific film actor, is missing many of his films. The film is presented full screen and the transfer, while not great, is acceptable for a budget release. The bottom line on "Casablanca Express" is that it's a fair time passer if you're not too demanding. ... Read more

If your looking into getting this movie because you are a devout Billy Boyd fan....BE WARNED: this is a different kind of Billy character. He plays the son of a loan shark and there is bad language involved. Not his most lovable part. He's also not on the screen as much as a true Billy Boyd fan would like.

On the positive side, this is an interesting movie with a interestingly scary plot and good acting. I would recommend it to anyone, who likes a good scary story. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Middling World War II Action-Adventure
By no means is "Casablanca Express" a great movie, but it is passable entertainment if you're not too discriminating and can accept some lapses in logic. Jason (son of Sean) Connery and Francesco (son of Anthony) Quinn are assigned to protect Winston Churchill who's travelling through North Africa on the Casablanca Express during World War II. The Germans are tipped off about Churchill's presence on the train and soon paratroopers capture the train and Churchill. It's up to Connery and Quinn (and the comely female agent Lorna) to rescue Mr. Churchill. Glenn Ford and Donald Pleasence have extended cameos as members of the Allied military brass in this European production. "Casablanca Express" makes a nice companion film to the superior "The Eagle Has Landed," wherein a team of German commandos attempt to assassinate Prime Minister Churchill on English soil.

The DVD, from Front Row, is another one of their budget releases, so don't expect too much. There are chapter breaks and biographies/filmographies for Connery and Pleasence, though the filmography for Pleasence, a prolific film actor, is missing many of his films. The film is presented full screen and the transfer, while not great, is acceptable for a budget release. The bottom line on "Casablanca Express" is that it's a fair time passer if you're not too demanding. ... Read more
