Movie Reviews

MMAfan | USA | 12/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Before I get to anything let it be known that there are spoilers in this review.

Although Jackie hardly speaks in it and is showed in it, it kinda seemed like he played a big part in the movie, but I think Tony Leung was the main character in this movie. I thought it was awesome. Sammo Hung I thought was kinda funny how he always tried to escape from prison and would get caught, and the one where he ran over that one police officer(You could easily tell that was a doll). If your a diehard Jackie Chan fan that always likes to see him succeed this is not your movie because Jackie Chan gets killed in this movie. It's the first one where I have seen that and I was suprised. Overall its a great movie and it actually has a good story to it if you pay attention to the beginning."
An Offer Jackie Couldn't Refuse, But Maybe You Should

"Bottom line: Jackie Chan owed Jimmy Wang Yu a favor, but apparently so do a lot of people. I wouldn't recommend this movie, but do recommend reading about how it came about in Jackie's autobiography "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action"."
Cheesy Kung-Fu Movie
Mary | Toronto | 07/26/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This cheesy kung-fu prison movie, contrary to the box art, does not "star" Jackie Chan. Chan and several other Hong Kong actors (like Sammo Hung) reportedly did this as a favour to co-star and producer Jimmy Wang-Yu ("One-Armed Swordsman," "Fantasy Mission Force"). Much of this movie is laughably bad, with goofy dialogue and entire scenes ripped-off from "Cool Hand Luke" of all things. Jackie Chan is in the movie for about 15 minutes.
The DVD is in the aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and it looks reasonably good. The dialogue is dubbed, but it hardly seems to matter in a movie like this. There is a commentary by a martial artist and filmmaker named Phillip Rhee that is okay. His historical insights aren't fabulous, but his anecdotes about some of the films stars are enjoyable. Rounding out the extras are some cast biographies and a trailer (which, deceivingly, shows Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung as being the central characters)."

"Not a bad movie for this genre, but the title of the movie ("Jackie Chan is the Prisoner") is a Big Fat Lie. This is not a Jackie Chan movie -- he's just one of many in the cast. Maybe it's naive to let such bold face lying (marketing) bother me, but it still does. We got the movie, actually believing that it was what Columbia/Tristar Studios promised it would be ..."
