In a wel­come se­quel to Shang­hai Noon, Jackie Chan and Owen Wil­son ( pic­tured) re­turn as Chon Wang and Roy O’Ban­non. This time it’s desti­na­tion Lon­don ( with all Bri­tish stereo­types ac­counted for) to track down the man who killed Chon’s dad, helped by his equally lethal sis­ter ( Fann Wong). Of course, there’s a vil­lain­ous aris­to­crat ( The Wire’s Ai­dan Gillen) and his right- hand man ( Don­nie Yen) to deal with, which the un­likely he­roes do in typ­i­cally un­ortho­dox style. In­cor­po­rat­ing sly literary and film ref­er­ences and af­ford­ing Chan am­ple time to kick some 19th- cen­tury butt, this is one of his bet­ter Hol­ly­wood out­ings to date.
