I bought this movie for my friends three year old for Christmas. It is a great movie. He loves it and his parents loved it. It shipped fast from walmart and the price was the same everywhere else I looked only shipping was free and I got it in a couple days rather than a couple weeks.
I first saw Shanghai Noon on TV, and I knew I had to get it on DVD. I opted for this double pack because I was interested in seeing the sequel, Shanghai Knights. I expected the sequel to be worse than the original since that seems to be the norm with movie sequels. I am pleased to report that I enjoy the sequel as much as the original. If you are looking for a couple of fun movies that take you on a crazy adventure and throw some action and humor into the mix, look no further than Shanghai Noon and Knights.
I actually bought this product online during the Christmas Holiday to avoid the rush of the store but happen to need to go to Wal Mart one day and stumbled across this movie. Listed online, it's is 9.96 but in not one but two Wal Mart stores, this movie was one of their 5 dollar movies. I did a site to store with this order and literally picked it up from site-to-store and walked to the other side of wal mart and returned it and about the other that was less expensive for the same product. The cashier mention to me that it happens all the time where people return products because they are cheaper in-store then online. Just be aware of that.
I was very surprised that this movie ended up being one I liked. It was one free for signing up for Vudu and it is not one I would have rented had it not been because I had never heard of it. Owen Wilson playing in a serious movie? I was pleased it kept me interested all the way through. I throughly enjoyed it.
This is almost Mel Brooks territory: The frontiersmen think the Chinese are Jews, while the white settlers think it's the Sioux who are. This is equal-opportunity nuttiness, and there's a method to it.
