The film is very light hearted and brisk, shifting from moment to moment and location to location. However, the police is called in and they are all arrested. Watched the movie yesterday and I must say it is awesome. The cinematography is ugly, and regularly misses moments of action due to bad framing, the score and soundtrack are instantly forgettable, and the direction is lacklustre, rambling and tonally inconsistent. The most annoying aspect is the shifting in different languages and pointless cast choices. However, Coco and Catherine disobey JC’s orders to look for Catherine’s great-great-grandfather’s corpse on their own. It is no surprise that Chan is keen to reprise the role, as his star has been on the wane for a number of years, but it appears he has left it all too late.

The film ends fz12 a decent sky-diving sequence shot at the Aerodium Latvia vertical wind tunnel, but it’s so nonsensically cro-barred into the narrative that it baffles and infuriates rather than delights.
CZ12 – Wikiwand
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Watched the movie yesterday and I must say it is awesome. The problem is, at 58 years of age, Chan is well past his prime and simply not capable of taking on everything that he used to, whether that be his cz112 stunt work or other, simpler duties. And I gotta say. JC intervenes and, in the ensuing airborne struggle, seemingly dies in order to save the relic from dropping into the volcano.
They have no right to auction stolen treasures.
Review: CHINESE ZODIAC (CZ12) Sounds the Death Knell on Jackie Chan’s Action Career
Too damn long-winded and frequent. JC promises Catherine that he will help her locate her great-great-grandfather’s remains. Most of his films have left me in awe. JC and his team fight their way through to escape the island via a log set up with a pulley system, leaving the five guards with the pirates.
There are countless movies I think are crap but rottentomatoes and imdb’s reviewers give high ratings and movies that I think are good received low ratings. Everything mentioned in the review is true. Reminds me of The Touch starring Michelle Yeoh a couple of years back. For a JC film there seems to be surprisingly few fight scenes the biggest fight scene appears about an hour in fz12 I have to say it satisfies greatly.
I think I will watch it as each person has different expectations about movies. If this is to be Chan’s final cz122 role, as he has promised, it proves a sad swan song, but one that is perhaps long overdue.
Oh no, there’s been an error
For his st movie, Jackie Chan resurrects his maverick treasure cz2 from the Armor of God series to go in search of Chinese relics, only to discover his edge has been c1z2 by a sickening line in self-aggrandising patriotism. I also noticed framing issues but it did not distract too much from the fight scenes. Man, that’s one heartbreaking review. JC’s cover is soon busted but he manages to evade capture with all the valuables. I just watched the movie and I loved it!
The film is very light hearted and brisk, shifting from moment to moment and location to location. It was another multilingual co-production that suffered from most of the same elements that are described in this review. April 198: I was actually very impressed at the movie trailer. Forced to speak in English, French and then suddenly Mandarin late on, she has an uphill struggle to be anything put a punch bag for the Chinese cast, and the execrable dialogue her character is given all but scuppers any possibility of her giving a decent performance.
After successfully robbing a French stately home of two bronze heads, their path crosses that of Duchess Katherine Laura Weissbeckerwhose ancestors were involved in the raid of the Summer Palace and offers her help. JC Jackie Chanis tasked by MP Corp to find the remaining lost bronze heads, with a promise of a 10 times bonus if he can recover all of them.
At the centre of all this is Jackie Chan, a man whose popularity has been steadily in decline over the past decade or so, despite his ccz12 efforts to be taken seriously. The guards from the mansion storm the boat house and try to attack JC.
It is not the film’s message that is bothersome – after all it is hard to argue against returning pillaged national treasures to their rightful owners – but it is the clumsy, confrontational manner in which the film handles it that is likely to rile audiences and bore them to tears. He hops across rooftops and clambers up and down walls, but nothing we haven’t seen before.
However, despite appearing as the same affable clown that has won him legions of fans over the past 30 years, his writing is what sinks the project beyond any hope of recovery. The Hollywood Reporter also gave a negative review, noting the film’s length and the lack of martial arts and stunts that star Chan is known for. When left alone, JC scans the multiple bronze Zodiac animal heads using special gloves so that his secret organisation can replicate an extremely realistic model of them.
