So Much fun that's not to be taken seriously!
on 11 March 2004
'The Medallion' is one of those movies to fill a spare hour and a half. As in many action films, the plot is forgotten and essentially it's just a setup for the fights and action. People assume that every Jackie Chan film will have hardcore martial arts fighting, but this is not true. Chan has never been a Kung Fu master, however he's always been a Kung Fool master (not an insult to the man just he's choice of style)which is proved greatly in this movie. The nice thing about this movie is the romantic sub-story. Chan and Forlani have an amazing chemistry, but Chan doesn't play it like a Hugh Grant, he's like a normal guy whcih is interesting to see. This movie is not an epic, but with a title like 'The Medallion' and Chan and Evans in the cast, you shouldn't be expecting one. However it's very entertaining, and a nice one to have in your collection!
