Around The World In 80 Days Movie Review
June 29, 2004

I enjoyed this movie.  I went to see it because I saw the TV show where Jackie Chan reveals how he creates the fight scenes in his movies.  To me, how he comes up with the ideas and executes them onscreen so fluidly is just as interesting.

Jackie Chan has a wonderful, creative mind in the fight sequences.  The props are what sets him apart.  For example, in the village fight scene he makes the bench an interesting part of the fight, or in Paris, he makes good use of the paint as an effective prop.

His mark on martial arts as entertainment includes his own, new twist--humor and the everyday things you find around you that can become your allies during a fight. 

The fight sequences in Paris, the village, and the last fight with the bad female warlord are great.  Not only that, the acting is actually pretty good.  

And you are treated well with the addition of the great cameos.

Jackie Chan has proven that there is a new way to enjoy martial arts in movies.

(As a side note, for paint horse fans--in Shanghai Noon, the paint horse acts on cue--when the horse sits in front of the saloon, when the horse pulls down the blanket off his back, and when it chugs down a bottle of liquor.  I'm only bringing this up because here is another movie where paint horses show their talent).
