Originally titled "Looking for Jackie", which is a better summary, the movie features Jackie in a cameo role. It allows him to do some trademark moves with members of his stunt team, but they are "low-impact" and could be disappointing for fans of the big blockbusters. Actual Jackie Chan fans - the ones who watch everything from Police Woman and 36 Crazy Fists, up through Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars and Wheels on Meals, then Rush Hour, Shanghai Knights and New Police Story - will enjoy his choreography and inventiveness showcased on a shoestring and with zero budget, to help along a rather cheesy and predictable feel-good movie for Chinese families the world over. A young Chinese boy, is so obsessed with Jackie Chan that he travels from home in hot Indonesia to visit his Grandma near freezing Beijing, just because he hears that Jackie will be in the city to do some filming. So you saw a dream sequence Jackie fight at the beginning to whet your appetite, then follow the boy as he meets various characters on his quest to meet his idol. Some of the sub-plots appear altogether random and I was a little surprised that such a formula story didn't find a way to bring them all together for an ultimate happy ending. Typically for a Chinese movie, while the male characters can be ugly and stupid, the females are all young and beautiful. Several of these get to display some pretty good WuShu style fighting of their own. The boy is pretty good too, but he is allowed to be fairly sloppy, in keeping with the role. He is the student after all.
It looks like a made-for-TV movie. It is very Pro-China, Pro-Tourism, Pro-Chinese Culture and Jackie gets to remind the youth of the world to respect their elders, learn their own culture and language, work hard at school, etc.

It should be titled "How to make a Jackie Chan movie without Jackie Chan" - the answer is that it takes about 2 minutes of Jackie Chan's time, less the gratuitous opening scene (which was probably used in another Jackie Chan movie). Summary: The adventure of a brat who becomes slightly less bratty over the course of the movie. We (yes, more than one in my household watched it) were hoping for the big tie-in at the end of one or more characters in whom the plot crew invested much screen time. Could have been fun or heart-warming. Oh, well. If you really-really like Jackie Chan and have some time to spare ... you might watch another Jackie Chan movie. If you have watched every other one, you might give this a shot.

It's not as good as expected it would be.In quite a good proportion of the movie Jackie chan doesn't even feature.No where near as good as the karate kid.Having watched it once I don't know whether I would get excited about watching again.

Okay. hardly any Jackie. But still okay to watch. No real fights or anything, few cool sequences, but I think it was made and then Jackie Chan scenes added afterwards
