Just like "The Tuxedo", this Jackie Chan action-comedy is another gimmick film, complete with wire-work and CGI special effects. Chan plays a Hong Kong cop, who after a near-fatal accident involving a "Medallion" is suddenly transformed into an immortal warrior with special powers and superhuman strength. "The Medallion" co-stars, Claire Forlani (Boys And Girls), Lee Evans (There's Something About Mary) and Julian Sands (Leaving Las Vegas) as the villain Snakehead. Chan is still the man in this kung fu-action-comedy-fantasy-adventure. Fans of these genres won't be disappointed with this enjoyable romp.
