'Skiptrace' Movie Review: Do Not Skip This Jackie Chan-Johnny Knoxville Entertainer!

 
'Skiptrace' Movie Review: Do Not Skip This Jackie Chan-Johnny Knoxville Entertainer!
Star Cast: Jackie Chan, Johnny Knoxville, Fan Bingbing, Eric Tsang and Winston Chao

Director: Renny Harlin

Producer: Jackie Chan, Charlie Coker, Damien Saccani

Claps For: Performances, Visual gags, Background score, Action sequences and Picturesque locations

Slaps For: Predictable storyline

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: It’s been nine years since Bennie Chan witnessed his partner’s death. Since then, his life has revolved around taking care of Yung’s daughter Samantha, and trying to find out who the crime boss Matador is. On the other hand, there’s Connor Watts who is gambles his way through Chinese casinos to make a living.

Their paths cross when Samantha gets into trouble and asks Chan to get Watts back to Hong Kong in order to get her out of the situation.

On their way from Russia to Hong Kong fighting Russian mafia and saving themselves from getting caught by the men of Hong Kong’s crime boss, Bennie finds out that Connor has a mobile phone that will directly lead him to Matador and bring his search of nine years to an end.

Performances: It is the bromance between Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville that makes this film worth every penny. While Chan acts in his comfort zone as the serious cop who has had no life and lives up to his image of being perfect in action sequences, Knoxville portrays the undisciplined Connor Watts with perfection and surprises with the various shades to his character.

Fan Bingbing looks gorgeous but doesn’t really have much to do- thanks to her half-baked character.

Rest all lend a good support to the film and make it a fun watch.

About The Movie: Like any other buddy action flick, this one too begins with two people meeting each other and embarking on a journey filled with loads of laughter and action scenes before they fight with each other and then re-unite for the climax. And that’s perhaps the only aspect of the movie which fails to stand out.

Rest everything; be it the well-choreographed action sequences, visual gags, a bit of emotional scenes and here and there along with the background score and apt cinematography work well for the movie.

Having said that, the CGI effects could have been better, but that can be ignored since it doesn’t spoil the fun.

Overall, this one’s a complete Jackie Chan style entertainer that will not disappoint you if you are looking for a good doze of entertainment!

Combo-On-Offer: Action + Comedy + Drama

Verdict: We give ‘Skiptrace’ CLAPS for being a complete paisa vasool entertainer filled along with Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville’s adorable bromance that will put a smile on your face as you exit the cinema hall!
