When the lovely Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu) is kidnapped from China, the Emperor dispatches three of his most fierce and noble Imperial Guards to deliver the ransom in gold to her kidnappers in America's Wild West. Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) isn't among the chosen. However, he manages to tag along anyway by offering to carry the luggage for his uncle, the Interpreter. Roy O'Bannon (Owen Wilson) is a wanna-be-train robber in Nevada. Only these two unlikely heroes, Chon Wang and Roy O'Bannon, can save her, but first, they have to survive. Along the way to Carson City they encounter the wackiest and wildest western adventure of their lives.

All in all, a very good movie. Owen Wilson shines right along with Jackie Chan as we get back to the old west. I liked this movie for several reasons, first, there are lots of good kung fu momements. Creative use of old-west items as kung-fu weapons. Jackie uses everything in his path to fight just like his good old Young Master, Drunken Master 2 days. Second reason while I really like this movie is because it shows the Native American people as strong and proud (and with a sense of humor too). The fact that the Indians are just as good with the axe as Jackie, if not better is a plus in my book. There is just lots of really creative fights in this movie. Recommended!
