      Elizabeth Kerr Hollywood Reporter Namiya is a case of "If you've seen the first one, don't bother." Jan 26, 2018 Full Review James Marsh South China Morning Post The enigmatic poetry of the [Japanese] original has been lost in this clumsy reworking.

      Adis M One of the worst movies with Jackie Chan. Total scum. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/08/19 Full Review Audience Member I just found this movie on Amazon Prime. I didn't know anything about the book or previous movie. I truly enjoyed this movie. I confess to being a little confused at some points, but the story kept pulling me forward and all was revealed by the end. I liked the movie so much, that I was hoping to find a blu-ray version so I could see any extras. I didn't find a blu-ray, but I did bump into other reviews. If, like me, you knew nothing about previous versions, you might also really enjoy this movie. I'm a huge Jackie Chan fan, so seeing him in such a unique role was a treat. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Touching and heartwarming fantasy with interwoven tales all linked throughout the years to a group foster home. Cinematography and sets are wonderful. Jackie Chan is good as usual, as the owner of the magical general store, but it is really the younger characters in the story that draw you in and bring the story to life. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Jackie Chan is old. And in Namiya, he is really old. First of all, kudos to the makeup team for doing a good job. It could've been better, but it wasn't off putting. Namiya is a movie about three teenage runaways who hide out in an abandoned general store after committing a burglary. Through a series of supernatural events, they are connected to the kind old owner of the store who lived many years ago. The story is about how the lives of these three orphans are changed by this man named Namiya. In paper, it looks good. It has an interesting theme and it has the potential to be a feel good family entertainer. And to be fair, for the most part, it tries. The movie maintains a certain charm but it's let down by bad and unbelievable storytelling. It's quite a stretch even for suspension of disbelief. When watching the movie, all I see is how well this movie could've been. The storyline is unnecessarily complicated, and even for a fantasy film, quite unbelievable. Being a die-hard Jackie Chan fan, I was so delighted to see him in a completely unusual role to which he does justice. Unfortunately, everything good about the movie was that: Jackie Chan being loveable. That however, doesn't even amount to how badly the movie was executed. In conclusion, all I see in this movie is a missed opportunity. Something that could've been an entertaining feel good movie turns out to be a "what on earth is going on?" movie. Wouldn't recommend it as a movie, but maybe just check out the trailer and a few clips for Jackie's sake. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
