Metacritic Score

  • 90

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    A refreshing movie that's so good natured, so confident of its ability to provoke not queasy awe or numb exhaustion but pure delight.

  • 90

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Jackie Chan's best American picture to date, breathes fresh life into the virtually dormant comedy-western.

  • 90

    Variety Joe Leydon

    This enjoyable East-meets-Western likely will succeed on its own terms as a sure-fire, long-legged crowd-pleaser.
