Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.19.16] Hong Kong action comedy

Generally speaking, I would skip a movie starring Johnny Knoxville but there's just too much other good stuff working in Skiptrace's favor; namely Jackie Chan and Renny Harlin.

After years of relatively unmemorable projects, Chan appears to be back in the comedy/action mode that made him an international star. Then there's the Harlin factor. Sure, there's a lot of mediocrity in his filmography but it's always fun to watch. Can't say that about a lot of the action that's flying around these days. As for Knoxville... he's the major drawback here though under certain circumstances, even he can be palatable. Hopefully this is one of those times.

Chan stars as Bennie Chan, a Hong Kong detective who teams up with an American gambler (Knoxville) in an attempt to bring down a notorious Chinese gangster. Comedy and ridiculous action ensues. Chan kicks ass and everyone goes home happy. Or so we hope!

Skiptrace opens September 2.

Recommended Release: The Legend of Drunken Master
