Pointless martial-arts comedy about a Hong Kong cop (Jackie Chan) who is endowed with superhuman powers by a sacred amulet in order to protect its young guardian from a madman bent on using the talisman's powers for his own evil designs. Failing to satisfy viewers' adrenal glands or funny bones, this kung-fu clunker, directed by Gordan Chan, hangs a series of increasingly tedious chopsocky fight sequences on a threadbare narrative, which, despite Jackie Chan's gravity-defying feats, offers few thrills. With action violence and some crass humor and double entendres, the USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
