Synopsis


Robin-B-Hood
The Jackie Chan-headlined action farce Rob-B-Hood concerns Slipper (Chan), a character caught up in a hornet's nest of problems. Raised by poor parents and expelled from school at an early age, Slipper became notorious for his lightning-fast footwork and quick-fingered hijinks, but managed to tally up a massive amount of gambling debt. With no other choice, he accepted his crooked landlord's bid to participate in a series of crazy heists. They paired up with another shady character, Octopus (Louis Koo), and successfully kidnapped BB, a tycoon's grandson, but unforeseen complications led the trio to keep the baby longer than they had originally intended. Now, when the men learn that a triad intends to collect on some unpaid ransom and kill the child in the process, they decide to keep the baby indefinitely, as an unofficial "adopted son," and train him in the ways of burglary. They receive assistance, in this endeavor, from a teenage hanger-on, Pak Yin (Charlene Choi); a nurse named Melody (Gao Yuanyuan); and the landlord's missus, (Teresa Carpio). Suddenly, however, the rollers and the triads begin to close in, and the men must figure out a way to return the baby to his folks. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    If you're a fan of Chan

    I'm a big fan of Chan and when I saw the cover I thought "Eh, another bad Chan film." Not so, the storyline is surprisingly deep, and if comes with one of the most moving scenes in a Chan film since Sammo Hung played his mentally challenged brother. Don't judge the movie by its TERRIBLE cover art. It is horrible unrepresentative of the actually content. All in all I enjoyed it and I was on the edge of my seat for the last 20 minutes. Great way to spend an evening. Watch it, you won't regret it.

    If you loved Rush Hour 1, 2, and 3 then you'll love this film. I believe it is one of Jackie Chan's best movies. The whole film was shot in China so the whole cast(other then Jackie) is probably unfamiliar.The movie is packed with great action sequences, hiliarious dialogue, and interesting story line. It's better to watch the movie in cantonese with english subtitles.
