THE MEDALLION (2003) **

This juvenile Jackie Chan outing borrows from his previous outing, The Tuxedo. Instead of a supped up penguin suit it’s an ancient medallion that infuses Chan with supernatural kung fu abilities. Chan plays a cop trying to rescue a young boy from the wonderfully named Snakehead (Warlock’s Julian Sands). When Chan dies, the boy uses the medallion to bring him back to life. I love Chan’s old stuff and can’t stomach the CGI work which ruins the purity of the fighting. There are one or two nifty action scenes, but the whole thing is marred by an incredibly stupid ending. Co-starring Claire (Mallrats) Forlani, the annoying Lee (Mousehunt) Evans, and John (Raiders of the Lost Ark) Rhys-Davies.
