Product Description

Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan gives his self-mocking humor full flourish in City Hunter, adapted from a Japanese comic book. But that doesn't mean there isn't a solid dose of action--after a brilliantly cartoonish opening, the movie settles into a half-comedy, half-thriller variation on Die Hard, in which Eurotrash terrorists have hijacked a plush ocean cruise liner and super-detective Ryu Saeba (Chan) has to stop them, aided by his lovely, love-lorn assistant (Joey Wong, A Chinese Ghost Story, Green Snake) and a beautiful undercover secret agent (Chingmy Yau, Naked Killer). Though City Hunter is short on breathtaking stunts, there's plenty of well-choreographed hand-to-hand combat. Jackie Chan's lecherous, self-absorbed character (accompanied by a parade of girls into skimpy or skin-tight outfits) come across like a gleeful parody of James Bond (slightly marred by a bit of homophobia). All in all, a high energy romp. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Based on a popular Japanese comic strip, Hong Kong's high-flying martial arts action hero Jackie Chan stars as private Ryu Saeba in City Hunter. Hired to find the runaway daughter of a Japanese publishing tycoon, Ryu's first impulse is to turn the job down - until he sees a picture of the beautiful Shizuko (Kumiko Goto). Hot on her heels, Ryu tracks her down on board a cruise ship, and much to the annoyance of his jealous female sidekick Kaori (Joey Wong) the womanizing Ryu seems more interested in catching Shizuko's attention than returning her safely to her father. However, Ryu's romantic plans quickly go astray when a gang of ruthless criminals hijack the ship and hold the passengers to ransom. To save the day Jackie Chan's unique action style reigns supreme in a series of brilliantly conceived fight sequences as Ryu swings into action to dispatch the bad guys and rescue the goergeous Shizuko!

3.0 out of 5 stars this is a must see for the anime fans May 23 2004
By Wally
Format:DVD
This is a completely different kind of jackie chan movie. I did not see the anime of city hunter but from what i saw in the movie i bet they tried hard to keep to the series with the kind of antics the people in the movie do. I am writing this review without finishing watching the movie, but so far the movie is excellent. The voice is not Jackie Chan's though. Its some one else just like what they did with Gorgeous.
ONE THING I MUST WARN YOU ALL THOUGH IS THAT EVEN THOUGH THE COVER SAYS WIDESCREEN THE MOVIE IS FULL SCREEN.
I bought this movie in best buy for 9.99 and was hoping for the widescreen like it says on the box. this is not a two sided dvd where one side is wide and the other normal. The DVD itself does not say if it is widescreen or full screen. it just say the movie name on it.
I hope this is a screw up on the part of 20th Century Fox where some dum guy mixed a full screen DVD in the widescreen box, but if it isn't then they SUCK real bad. STOP FALSE ADVERTISING to make movie off of Jackie Chan's name. But i didn't find a full screen dvd for sale even online. This is the only reason i give the DVD a 3 out of 5.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Jackie. Ever. March 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have probably seen a dozen Jackie Chan movies and loved them all, City Hunter was the first movie of his to dissapoint me. The stunts are almost nonexistant and pretty lame when they do appear. The fight scenes are also dissapointing.
The worst part of the movie would have to be the rap video sequence. It was the most god awful thing that I have seen in my life.
The best part of the movie was when Jackie and his opponents are fighting in a video arcade and they all get transformed into different street fighter 2 characters. That part is actually really cool and if you are an old school fan of street fighter I would recommend renting this DVD just to see that. Other than that this is a movie to pass on.

1.0 out of 5 stars STICK WITH HK IMPORTS "ALWAYS" Feb. 23 2004
Format:DVD
Why American production make HK movies look so cheap? First of all, they cut off so much scene, second of all ruin it by making look act so dumb by English Dubb. ALWAYS stick with ORIGINAL LICENSED HK RELEASE. Be careful with cheap imports, boots, and bulls though.

5.0 out of 5 stars city hunter Oct. 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
overall this movie was very good. entertaining but slow in the beginning i thinketh. whoever wrote the script probably should have done a better job at getting all the characters known; for instance, i don't recall ever hearing the names of the two ladies that were on the boat working with the guy who was throwing the cards...and at some points soundquality was a little funky in that i couldn't really hear over the music they played while actors were talking.
Extremely funny during the Street Fighter part - good impersonation :) of cartoons .
i think they should have also put the credits in English too, for all the characters because i had to actually come here just to find out who the other characters were :(

Very nice video quality here, along with some nice extras make this DVD a "can't miss!"
City Hunter is a fantastic, over-the-top, Jackie Chan comedy, based on a Japanese Manga of the same name. Jackie is fun to watch, as is the rest of the cast. Also making an appearance here is Richard Norton and Gary Daniels.
Don't miss this DVD, you'll be sorry if you do!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical Jackie Chan movie Aug. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
First off if your expecting a typical Jackie chan movie like Rush Hour then your in for a big surprize. It's a great movie but you have to understand a few things before watching it. One thing is that this movie is a live action film based on an anime. Second you have to understand traditional anime, I don't mean like cowboy bebop or sailor moon. I mean the kind that we can only get with english subtitles. If you like cute anime then you'll like this movie. My favorite part it when jackie gets thrown into a video game machine an becomes street fighter characters. It has alot of action and the female cast gets beat up alot, but they try hard. I enjoyed it because I'm a kid at heart. I hope you enjoy it too.

This is quite possibly the worst Jackie Chan Film of all time. You will only find this film funny for about five minutes. After that, you will be wondering what dolt thought that this would make a good movie. It is only about 90 minutes, but it is so bad that it seems like days when the movie is finally over. I remember reading an interview with Jackie Chan where he commented that this was the worst film that he had ever made, and if you make the mistake of watching it I think you will agree. It is based off of an anime series by the same title. The anime is better, and would rate about 2 1/2 stars. The film fails to capture even the average quilty of the anime. If you enjoy watching bad movies for laughs, I would strongly recommend that you avoid this one. It is such a bad movie that not even a diehard Jackie Chan fan like myself can find any enjoyment in this awful movie.
