Critic Reviews of "Shanghai Noon"Time OutJune 24, 2006
Much of its strength comes from the central clash between Jackie's indomitable energy and Wilson's knowingly anachronistic cool, while lots of visual and verbal gags keep things whistling.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
This is almost Mel Brooks territory: The frontiersmen think the Chinese are Jews, while the white settlers think it's the Sioux who are. This is equal-opportunity nuttiness, and there's a method to it.New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Shanghai Noon is, in classic western tradition, a celebration of male bonding, unabashedly juvenile, boyishly risqué and disarmingly sweet.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
For Chan, it's a step in the right direction, although he has yet to be given the opportunity to bring the full force of his charisma to bear on an English speaking audience.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
If you see only one martial arts Western this year (and there is probably an excellent chance of that), this is the one.Village VoiceJanuary 01, 2000
Unstintingly funny.Family Home TheaterMarch 30, 2016
It's a clever variation on the buddy cop picture, with Jackie Chan showing both his comic chops and his martial arts skills, and Owen Wilson doing what he does best-playing a laid-back, chick-magnet California surfer dude.Antagony & EcstasyMay 19, 2013
You can't get a whole lot less substantial than this, but well-played, friendly banter is tough to do, and the film hits its mark perfectly on that front.Groucho ReviewsMay 14, 2013
Though the film nakedly seeks a wide audience through conventional plotting and characterization—and despite being (like most action movies) guy-centric—Shanghai Noon provides good, clean "family" fun. [Blu-ray]Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Engaging Jackie Chan movie for older teens and up.TheMovieReport.comJanuary 06, 2010
As far as light, brainless summer entertainment goes, it makes the grade.Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 07, 2008
The first half of this film is great entertainment, and then it starts to unravel, but not before Chan establishes himself as a dynamic comedian.
