Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars What the heck? Dec 17 2001
By Xoandre
Format:VHS Tape
First of all, I have grown to like Jackie Chan since seeing Rush Hour and have been renting the videos of his movies six at a time for three weeks straight and was shocked at the stupidity of this film.
In the listing on the back cover, it says "Hilarious", but I sat through 50 minutes of the movie and grew sick to the stomach. Jackie seems restrained by the character he is forced to portray. It seems as if this is a comic-book based movie. In that, the most annoying part of the movie is EVERY FIVE MINUTES, Jackie strikes a pose, the action stops and a chorus of girls sing the words "City Hunter" while Jackie freezes in a Vogue.
I never finished the movie because I was so queasy that I could take no more. Sort of like the sensation one gets after drinking milk, orange juice, and eating a raw slab of fish that still squirms with its last meal of worms.
There is no acting, there is hardly any action, and when the movie pauses for a pathetic song and dance routine on the ship where they cannot decide if they are singing in English or Chinese, that's the last straw. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like live action anime... July 21 2001
Format:DVD
I have to say that this is perhaps one of the best movies I've ever seen, and by far the best Jackie Chan one. Now, this movie isn't for everyone, but I think most people will enjoy it. Yes, it's extremely cheesy, but that adds to the greatness of it all.
I first saw this as a low qulity fansub, so finding the DVD was very nice. I've never seen the City Hunter anime (or read the manga), but this movie certianly makes me want to! If you get a laugh out of seeing anime-style humor (falling down, giant mallets, etc.) done in REAL LIFE, then you'll love this! The Street Fighter scene is definately the best (and I'll leave it at that so it's not runined for people who have never seen it). Another great scene is the performance of "Gala Gala Happy", which is a cool song IMO.
If you're an anime fan who likes Jackie Chan, then buy this NOW! If you're not an anime fan, but like Jackie Chan, then you will probably enjoy this. And if you're [insert what you are here], you may or may not like it, but I suggest buying it anyway, because there's a better chance that you will like it than not.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Listen up. He's got a fool-proof plan." April 19 2001
Format:DVD
For years, Jackie Chan has been the master of martial arts mayhem. Quite a few of his films have blended intense fight scenes with hilarious physical comedy. I think "City Hunter" is one of the best examples of this. From the opening bell, this flick is pure kung-fu camp. Even though the plot seems serious enough, the seriousness is dashed on the rocks by Jackie's (and the supporting cast's) on-screen antics filling every scene. The physical humor is absolutely side-splitting, and the best part is, Jackie's not the only one pulling it off! Nearly the entire cast contributes a moment or two of tomfoolery. The movie did an outstanding job of capturing that anime feel. It's like watching a live-action comic book! Australian martial-arts star Richard Norton makes a great lead villian (he's even better in "Mr. Nice Guy"), and Gary Daniels is awesome as his head flunkie. The exchanges between him and Jackie make for the best fight scenes in the film, although the last battle between Jackie and Norton is a smash as well. The fight between Jackie and Daniels in the ship's arcade is by far one of the most bizarre spectacles in the history of chop-socky; you've just gotta see it to believe it. Although it's not the best-known, it's definitely one of Jackie's best flicks; every aspect of it makes it a must-buy for fans of this genre.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Worst Jackie Chan Film - Stay Away! May 28 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have seen all the JC films and was building a DVD collection when I came across this one. My wife and I played it once and I immediately tried to return it to the guy who sold it to me and finally ended up unloading it on e-bay. An example at how offensive and unfunny this one is: tough guys boarding boat see 2 guys dressed flamboyantly, obviously together - tough guys say "I hope they all die of AIDS." Also plenty of scenes with one actress who is so top heavy (it took me a while to figure this one out being that she wasn't by U.S. standards) that she keeps on falling over. Please I'm a big fan of JC but this film deserves to be burned. His best HK films are Drunken Master 2 (beautiful film, not available yet on DVD), Police Story (best action/stunts), Dragons Forever (ensemble action/humor with Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao), Wheels on Meals (more fun with Sammo and Yuen), and Young Master (best fight scene). By the way, the Amazon.com review form requires that you give a film at least one star (not my idea).
