posticon US-Movie: Around the World in 80 Days

classfloat-rightImageOfficial Site:classulclassliDisneyWell, Jackie Chan is better in this movie than in his recent releases, not that that's saying a lot. The many cameos are mostly amusing: Sammo Hung as Wong Fei Hung, Owen Wilson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Branson, John Cleese, Kathy Bates, Rob Schneider, and a number of familiar faces from Hong Kong cinema. I especially like the sculpture. But, being a Disney movie, it was advertised as kid-friendly, and much of the writing in the movie obviously tries too hard to amuse that market segment.

If Jackie wants to continue to try to break into the U.S. market, I think he would be better off taking a major role in a true indie film to show what he can do rather than continue to do films like this one, The Tuxedo, and so forth.
