About the Movie
East meets West in two wildly hilarious comedies starring legendary action star Jackie Chan and funnyman Owen Wilson. Experience Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights for the first time on Blu-ray, featuring new digital restoration with enhanced picture and sound.

Chinese Imperial Guard Chon Wang is in for a real kick when he travels to the rough and tumble Old West to rescue the beautiful kidnapped princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu). Teamed with laid-back cowboy outlaw Roy O’Bannon, the two mismatched partners face jail, brawls and the vilest villains this side of the Great Wall. Then jump in the saddle for the wild and wooly sequel as the two unlikely heroes make their way to London on a daring quest for honor and revenge. These two uproarious comic adventures are even better on Blu-ray!

  • Jackie Chan (Rush Hour Franchise, The Karate Kid, The Spy Next Door) as Chon Wang
  • Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris, Cars, Wedding Crashers) as Roy O’Bannon

  • David Dobkin (The Change-Up, Wedding Crashers, Fred Claus)

My Take on the Movie
This is a great collection of two very funny movies with a great duo! Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson show a great chemistry in working together and you can see this in both of these movies. On top of this, the movies were hilarious and after finishing the first movie, you want to see the second to see what can happen next with the two of these characters. I also have to applaud Jackie Chan as I have seen other movies he has been in and I have to say that for me these are two of his best ones. On top of the humor, there are great action scenes where he brings out some of his best stunt work.  If you are already a fan of these actors but have never seen these movies you are definitely missing out and I highly encourage you to check this combo set today!
