LERS!!!I really enjoyed THE MEDALLION even though it starts out kinda slow but then it starts to get good after about 15 minutes into the film. It has one of the best foot chase scenes I have ever seen in a movie when Jackie Chan chases a tall black englishman and I can't believe it was all done without special effects. The movie really kinda reminded me of THE GOLDEN CHILD with Eddie Murphy(which I liked even though I think the critics hated it)and even though it was corny at times I found myself laughing out loud to a lot of funny scenes. It had a lot of good fight scenes in it... some of CHAN's best, some not, but overall I give the action content a thumbs up. I think this movie was a lot better than THE TUXEDO which really dissapointed me but not by too much. THE MEDALLION is still worth seeing though, especially that cute CLAIRE FORLANI whom I couldn't take my eyes off of through the whole picture(She is hypnotically hot!)and she did a really great job acting in her role I thought(she looks so cute when she's dancing!). I don't want to tell you exactly what the movie was about so I will let you see for yourself when you check it out but it does have a halfway decent plot to it. Not the best Jackie Chan movie I have seen, but not too shabby either. The bloopers at the end are always a treat, so stay for those.
