Big-budget Honk Kong fantasy action flick starring Jackie Chan as Eddie Yang, an indomitable Hong Kong cop who, after a fatal accident involving a mysterious medallion, is transformed into an immortal warrior with superhuman powers. Eddie enlists the help of British Interpol agent Nicole (Claire Forlani) to determine the secret of the medallion and to defeat the evil Snakehead (Julian Sands), a human-smuggling crimelord.
The inspired pairing of Jackie Chan and British comedian Lee Evans (Funny Bones) gives The Medallion some extra oomph. Hong Kong agent Eddie Yang (Chan) flies to Ireland to track down a very bad guy named Snakehead (Julian Sands, Warlock, exuding his dependable oily menace) who has kidnapped a young boy with the power of life and death. When Eddie dies protecting the boy, the boy resurrects him with a magical medallion--and when Eddie comes back, he's got supernatural powers, much to the befuddlement of his former partner, Arthur (Evans). Along for the ride is Eddie's old flame, Nicole (Claire Forlani, i>Mystery Men<), wearing tight outfits and delivering high-kicks. Chan has lost the astonishing elasticity of his youth, but he's still spry enough to pull some dazzling moves, and Evans is just amazingly funny. Between the two, The Medallion is far more entertaining than you might expect. --Bret Fetzer

The premise isn't terribly imaginative to begin with: Chan's Hong Kong cop and Evans' Interpol agent are trying to catch vaguely defined villain Julian Sands and rescue a Golden Child he's kidnapped to harness the power of a medallion that can bestow super powers and immortality. Eventually Chan gets killed only to come back with vaguely defined superpowers - largely relating to bad wire work and poor special effects - and yada yada yada, you've heard it all before. With the plot reduced to its barest elements and the relationship between the two stars a non-starter, all that's left to hold the fort are Sammo Hung's action scenes, but even these are so lazily staged with such a plethora of unconvincing wire work it's no great surprise to find most of them relegated to the deleted scenes bin.Read more ›
It's a mish-mash, but it's hilariously enjoyable. The out-takes at the end seem to include many dozens of deleted scenes, mostly including Lee Evans, which should've been left in. You feel like the director removed some of Lee's role, and it's a shame. However, fantastic fantastic movie. Some dodgey acting by some bit-players at the start, and a lull in the middle, but well worth sticking! :)
Snakehead manages to kidknap the boy again and uses him to make him immortal like Eddie. A fight then follows between the two immortals, complete with a lot of special effects.
I have to say that Lee Evans is always an unusual choice of action for a film but he is perfect for the spoof role that he is playing.
This definately is a spoof film with a mythical feel to it.
Very funny if you enjoy Lee's typical level of humour, if not perhaps this is one to give a miss.
Jackie is superb as ever with various fight scenes and chases. Not his best film ever but certainly good viewing.
