(es) wrote: Easy to watch light-weight comedy. Ideal for 'family night in' viewing. Moving touches in the bullying storyline and the 'good guy wins in the end'. My daughter and I were extras and we can confirm Rocco and his team's hard work - Well done everyone. Great use of Ludlow and Nunnery Wood High School. The extras on the DVD are fun. Loved the Vikings in todays world. Recommended.

Rik and Adrian are comedy geniuses! And I laughed on this play a lot. Like, really a lot! It has so many gags, few of which are quite disgusting, and all of them deliver laughs! It would be a shame if someone were to skip this play/show. I pity the fool who does that!
(es) wrote: Review:What an awful movie. Right from the beginning, I didn't have a clue about what was going on and the so-called comedy element, was EXTREMELY bad. I can't believe that somebody actually sat down and wrote this crap! There's no real action throughout the whole movie and I must admit, I didn't pay any attention after a while so I don't really know what the film was truly about. The little bit that I understood was that Jackie Chan was playing Ryu Saeba, who is hired by a publishing tycoon, to find his daughter. He sights her on a skateboarding ground but she escapes from him and Ryu finally catches up with her on a cruise ship, which just happens to be hijacked by thugs who are holding the rich passengers hostage. After some silly action scenes, including a Streetfighter sketch which was completely ridiculous, Ryu manages to take down the thugs with the help of his jealous side kick. All the way through the movie, Ryu is really hungry and surrounded by women who find him attractive. His jealous sidekick tries to fight of the women because she has the hots for Ryu but he made a promise to her father, who was his brutally murdered partner, never to have a relationship with her. Sounds interesting but it really wasn't! Chan completely made a fool of himself throughout the movie and I can't believe that they watched this rubbish before they released it. If I could give a movie a minus score, I would because this has to be the worst movie that I have seen from Chan. Awful!Round-Up:This rubbish was directed by Jing Wong who has brought you over 100 movies across the pond but I haven't heard of any of them. The only movies that I have seen from this director are the Evil Cult, Last Hero In China, the New Legend of Shaolin and Meltdown, which all starred Jet Li but his other movies are, somewhat, unheard of. This movie is based on the comic book, City Hunter, which I know nothing about so I can't make an comparison. As a movie, it's a complete waste of time and money and I won't be watching it again anytime soon.I don't recommend this movie to people who are into their action/martial arts/romance/comedies starring Jackie Chan, Richard Norton, Gary Daniels, Joey Wang and Kumiko Goto. 1/10

Also, the story was kind of dumb and it wasn't very scary. I did expect a lot more from this movie, but it at least had some gore.
