Jackie Chan stars as Eddie Yang, a resolute Hong Kong cop who suffers a near fatal accident while investigating a case involving a mysterious medallion. Eddie soon discovers that with the powerful medallion in his possession, he gains incredible speed, strength and skills - taking his martial arts abilities to a whole new level.
Enlisting the help of British Interpol agent Nicole James (Claire Forlani), Eddie is determined to learn the secret of the medallion and face down the evil crime lord Snakehead (Julian Sands) who wants to use its awesome powers for his own nefarious plans.
What the critics are saying:
"Chan's so old and tired he's willing to let the martial arts take bottom billing, opting instead for a series of set-piece effects scenes that are appallingly ropey."- Jamie Russell, BBCi Films"A disposable entertainment, redeemed by silliness, exaggeration, and Chan's skill and charm."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"Chan's normally homegrown stuntwork is replaced by a lot of wire fighting and special effects."- Matt Bonesteel, Washington Post
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
