Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan are at it again in this high-flying sequel to the surprise 2000 hit Shanghai Noon. Like the first film's release, Touchstone has once again delivered a grand DVD, with extras that will wet the whistle of any action devotee. The disc comes with a sharp widescreen 2.35:1 picture and is formatted for 16 x 9 televisions for all you lucky widescreen-TV owners. Sound options range from Dolby Digital 5.1 to a fantastic THX track; there is also an audio commentary with director David Dobkin along with another track with screenwriters Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. The extras really heat up with the sit-down interview with Dobkin and Chan about the fight choreography in the "Fight Manual" behind-the-scenes featurette. Considering his disappointment with the original Rush Hour's action scenes, these clips show Chan taking charge while working with the cast and crew, making sure each scene is not only entertaining, but also one that fits the story. Equally impressive are most of the 11 deleted scenes, with four of them fully uncut fight scenes which highlight more of the carefully choreographed exceptional martial arts footwork from Chan and others from the film (including Donnie Yen, who was poorly featured in the final cut). Also on the disc is "Action Overload," a compilation of some of the best clips from the film which have been sepia-toned and put to old-time music (which pretty much makes it a throwaway extra compared to the rest of the disc). With the majority of the features spotlighting the action, this disc should be a winner for old and new Jackie Chan fans alike.

This is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. Jackie Chan is awesome, and Owen Wilson is great as a comedian and just a plain funny guy. Go see this one ya'll!!!

The plot around this movie was not all that good, but the movie itself was very funny, and I like movies like that. Sometimes if you want to just laugh, this is a movie to watch.
