The "Noon" Is Blu, And The "Knight" Is, Too 23 May 2013
By deewani2 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
"Shanghai Noon" has long been one of my favorite American Jackie Chan films, featuring not only classic Chan combats but also a partnership with a non-Asian actor that is lively and enlightening instead of depressing and demeaning; it was directed by a JC fan who was invested in presenting the Hong Kong Jackie persona that the world loves in a more Hollywood format that American audiences were comfortable with, and Tom Dey absolutely got it right.

With a witty "fish out of water" story that pays homage to the great Westerns (from glossing "High Noon" to naming Chan a Chinese sound-alike for John Wayne) while playing havoc with the genre's conventions, and a great cast from both East and West (supporting standouts include HK martial arts actor Yu Rong-guan using an array of Chinese weaponry, American Roger Yuan playing an Imperial villain, and Xander Berkeley as an ethically challenged lawman), the film manages to be exciting, endearing, amusing, and really quite amazing.

"Shanghai Knights," while not as good a film, and with a lesser director, is still a worthy second outing. As with most sequels, there is a bit of reaching in order to unpin the happy ending of the first film and reunite the protagonists in a new adventure, but the lack of a more original and compelling script is made up for with some eye popping action (including two sequences that morph the classic bits of Harold Lloyd's "Safety Last" and Gene Kelly's "Singin' In The Rain" into brilliant Chan martial mayhem), and a battle with rival Hong Kong martial arts star Donnie Yen. Best of all, the odd couple chemistry of fast talking Owen Wilson and fast moving Jackie Chan remains a highlight. It'a a pity they didn't do more films together.

The combination of both films into a single Blu-ray Disc works fine, due to the increased ability to hold information, and all the special features of the individual DVDs are included as well. The upgrade in image is substantial, and the price is reasonable, so if you really like either or both of these films, the Blu-ray is worth getting.

"Shanghai Noon" was a much better film than it sequel "Shanghai Knights" but both are entertaining popcorn action films. 4 July 2013
By Dennis A. Amith - Published on Amazon.com
With the success of "Rush Hour" in 1998, more films to showcase martial arts movie star Jackie Chan continued well into the 2000′s and this time around, pairing him with actor Owen Wilson in the martial arts action comedy western film titled "Shanghai Noon".

Earning over $99 million in the box office, the film featured the filmmaking debut of Tom Dey ("Showtime", "Failure to Launch") and feature a screenplay written by writing duo Miles Millar and Alfred Gough ("Spider-Man 2″, "I Am Number Four", "Smallville").

The film featured an all-star cast with Jackie Chan ("Rush Hour" films, "The Karate Kid", "Shinjuku Incident"), Owen Wilson ("Midnight in Paris", "Wedding Crashers", "Cars" films), Lucy Liu ("Kill Bill: Vol. 1″, "Lucky Number Slevin", "Charlie's Angels"), Roger Yuan ("Batman Begins", "Skyfall", "Syriana") and Xander Berkeley ("Terminator 2: Judgment Day", "Air Force One", "Gattaca", "Taken").

With the success of "Shanghai Noon" in the box office, it would guarantee a sequel in 2003 titled "Shanghai Knights" but this time directed by David Dobkin ("Wedding Crashers", "Fred Claus", "The Change-Up"). But bringing back both writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.

VIDEO:

"Shanghai Noon/Shanghai Knights: 2-Movie Collection" is presented in 1080p High Definition (2:35:1). Having owned both DVD's, picture quality for both films look amazing on Blu-ray! Colors are much more vibrant, the film doesn't look like it's nearly 14-years-old. Colors are vibrant and sharp outdoors, black levels are nice and deep. If anything, both films definitely looks much better in HD!

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"Shanghai Noon" and "Shanghai Knights" is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, English and French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 2.0 Dolby Digital (note: Spanish is 5.1 on "Shanghai Noon" and 2.0 on "Shanghai Knights"). I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed that the films did not receive a DTS-HD Master Audio conversion as most films from Buena Vista or Touchstone Home Entertainment receive a lossless audio conversion. With that being said, both films had active surround Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks when they were released on DVD. As can be said with the soundtrack on Blu-ray! Good use of surround channels for the action sequences and LFE, while the second film tend to utilize the music soundtrack a bit more with its modern music.

Subtitles are in English SDH, French and Spanish.

JUDGMENT CALL:

It was a chance to see a different side of Jackie Chan, combining martial arts, action and western? Who would of thought that this concept would work? But in 2000, people came out to see Jackie Chan, the legendary martial arts actor who has been in movies since the 1960′s.

While many Americans saw Jackie Chan in the popular 1981 film "The Cannonball Run", while martial arts fans were treated with fantastic Jackie Chan films through the '80s such as the "Police Story" films, "Supercop" films and "The Legend of Drunken Master", many had to import these films or watch them at a film festival.

Until 1995 and many had the opportunity to see Jackie Chan in a film that was dubbed but tailored to Western tastes with "Rumble in the Bronx". This led to past films he made, being dubbed in English and being released in theaters or direct-to-video and by 1997, he was making films such as "Mr. Nice Guy" and "Who Am I?".

But it's the police comedy "Rush Hour", where people had a chance to see a film directed by an American and combining Jackie Chan's martial arts skills with comedy, playing opposite to an American talent. "Rush Hour" was a box office success and would spawn two more films, writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar would create an action western but utilizing another American collaboration with Jackie Chan but with Owen Wilson, who was not the big star as he would later become, as the only major films he had appeared in were "The Haunting", "Armageddon" and "Anaconda". Suffice to say, "Shanghai Noon" would continue showcasing Jackie Chan as the legendary martial arts actor on the big screen, while Owen Wilson would show that he can do comedy films and be a headliner.

The film would also allow Jackie Chan to incorporate his Hong Kong fight choreography using his crew, but also working with an American crew to have an East meets West type of production, but to also showcase Jackie Chan's Buster Keaton physical comedy-style that he has been known for.

"Shanghai Noon" would go on to make over $99 million and in 2003, it sequel "Shanghai Knights" would go on to make over $88 million.

It has probably been a decade or more since I have watched each of these films. At the time, I was still on a Jackie Chan high, and really wanting to watch every film that he has starred in. One thing that we know about Jackie Chan is that he is an actor that is so dedicated, but also willing to sacrifice his body in order to make these films. He makes it look easy, when you know, he's probably been hurt countless times while shooting the film.

My thoughts on "Shanghai Noon" was that the film gave Jackie Chan a chance to show that collaborations between an Eastern fight staff and a Western staff can be done and how important fight scenes are in getting the timing right. That is the experience that Jackie Chan brings to a film.

While "Rush Hour" plays on the racial card for a lot of its humor, "Shanghai Noon" is more or less about two guys who were not that great at what they do. Jackie Chan was not a good Imperial Guard and Owen Wilson was not a good Outlaw. But these two found a way to work with each other and take on significant odds. It's a classic story of underdogs managing to get the job done!

"Shanghai Noon" also starred Lucy Liu who was best known during the '90s and early 2000′s for "Ally McBeal" but 2000 would prove to be a banner year for Liu who would star in both "Shanghai Noon" and as one of the angels in "Charlie's Angels".

But the film was fun and a pure popcorn action film with two unlikely talents to be put together in a film and it worked!

As for "Shanghai Knights", the film tries to bank on new director David Dobkin (who would later direct comedy films "Wedding Crashers", "Fred Claus" and "The Change-Up"). When I watched this in the theater back in 2003, there were a few things that bothered me about the film.

For one, how would they address the women that were part of the lives of Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon from the first film, how would they utilize one of the most well-known martial arts actors from Hong Kong with Donnie Yen and how would the story be with the characters leaving America and going straight to London.

While bringing the story to London would allow for great play of names such as Charlie Chaplin and Artie Doyle (or Arthur Conan Doyle), it's one thing to have fun with that. But the problem was that the writers tried to take what made the first film enjoyable but taking them out of the western environment and bringing them London. It just didn't seem right, nor did the character of Rathbone in the beginning, killing Wong's father. The character didn't seem ominous, he looked too much like singer, Josh Groban.

And while Jackie Chan was able to deliver in action as expected, the story also suffers from third wheel problems, by giving too much time for Chon Lin. While it's great for the film to showcase Fann Wong in action scenes, I often wondered if they knew how awesome of an actor Donnie Yen was. This could have led to one of the greatest matchups in an American martial arts film (ie. think Jackie Chan vs. Jet Li), but instead, they gave more screentime to the character of Rathbone and it just didn't seem right. The battle between Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen's characters just fell flat and how it ends was just terrible. The utilization of supporting characters and antagonists didn't seem right and while the film was OK, "Shanghai Noon" was so much better!

As for the Blu-ray release, having owned both DVD's of the films, both films definitely look so much better in High Definition, but I was surprised both did not receive the lossless treatment. Both are Dolby Digital 5.1 instead of DTS-HD MA 5.1 and I found that to be surprising. But both had wonderful soundtracks when they were released on DVD years ago and still sounds active through the surround channels and a bit of LFE utilized as well for this Blu-ray release. Both films are featured on one Blu-ray disc. You also get all the DVD special features content included with this Blu-ray release.

Overall, "Shanghai Noon/Shanghai Knights: 2- Movie Collection" are entertaining as popcorn action comedy films. These films are definitely not the best Jackie Chan films, nor his worst. But I found these films much more easier to stomach without the racial comedy as seen in the "Rush Hour" films.

"Shanghai Noon" was a much better film than it sequel "Shanghai Knights" and while I don't see a third film ever being released (especially with Jackie Chan's comments on America and his previous American films made earlier this year), the release of both films back in the early 2000′s was about interest in both talents, good timing and the timing was just right as people wanted to see more of Jackie Chan, the martial arts action star and Owen Wilson, the up-and-coming star.

For those who enjoy this film, while it doesn't have the lossless soundtrack, it's definitely worth upgrading for the picture quality and I do recommend this "Shanghai Noon/Shanghai Knights: 2- Movie Collection" for fans of the two films or are fans of Jackie Chan or Owen Wilson.

I am a big fan of Jackie Chan as well as westerns 11 Jan. 2014
By Mr. A. G. Eagleson - Published on Amazon.com

I enjoyed both of these films. They are funny and engaging with excellent action sequences. One of the things that I like about Jackie Chan is that he does not take himself too seriously. His main motivation is to make his fans happy. The result is entertainment that makes you laugh, touches your heart, and makes you wonder how they can do the amazing stunts. Owen Wilson contributes his own unique kind of humor that adds another dimension to the antics onscreen. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys action and comedy films.

If you don't mind laughing 27 Oct. 2013
By WVL - Published on Amazon.com

your butt off, then this is a good couple of movies to get. I had waited a long time to get these on Blu-ray and really wanted them on separate Blu-ray disk, but unfortunately, as of the time of this review, these movies are only currently being supported by double feature on Blu-ray. Anyway, I took the plunge and really enjoy both movies a lot. My wife and I laugh a lot on these two.

Great Movie Combo 8 Oct. 2013
By 1hotchick - Published on Amazon.com

I love the two movies together! Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson make a great pair in this spoof on the old westerns. Jackie Chan is excellent as Chon Wang an obvious play on "John Wayne" his Asian style "gymnastic fighting" is fun to watch and lends itself well in this comedy. Owen Wilson, as Roy O'Bannon, is the perfect comedic match to Jackie Chan's character.
