      Critics Consensus

      The use of special effects diminishes some of Chan's appeal in this disposable picture. Read critic reviews

        Utterly disappointing, with the plot mainly and somewhat bad actors that pissed me off.

        Eddie Yang is a Hong Kong cop working with Interpol to try and bring down criminal `Snakehead' (played by Julian Sands) who is after an ancient medallion and it`s keeper, a young Oriental boy, who has been chosen to give life, power and immortality to whomever he heals with it. After the boy is kidnapped during a failed attempt of capturing Snakehead, Eddie is sent to Dublin, Ireland where he joins forces with Agent Nicole James (the fantastically eye-pleasing Claire Forlani) and the less-than-competent Agent Watson (Lee Evans), a nerdy Interpol officer, who can't seem to get anything right. After a near-fatal accident Eddie is suddenly transformed into a 'Highbinder'--an immortal warrior with superhuman powers and must go face to face with the menacing Snakehead who desperately wants the medallion back. Jackie is fun to watch as is Christy Chung (Lee's wife) who has a hidden armory in the broom cupboard ~although there is no given explanation for that~ lol. Eerily reminiscent of Eddie Murphy's "The Golden Child." But I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys Jackie Chan movies!

        I do love Jackie Chan, but this movie was not as good as I expected to be.
