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.
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.
