Jon Monsarrat review: one of Jackie's worst
Let me admit up front that I am a Jackie Chan fan. I've even run a marathon of Jackie Chan movies. So I have a certain tolerance for films like "Rumble in the Bronx" that have no plot or character depth whatsoever, as long as there's plenty of action and some comedy.
Unfortunately, The Tuxedo stretches the genre in new ways, and I do not mean in the good direction. The gimmicks in the "secret agent tuxedo" aren't used in a clever manner and there's very little tension. The physical comedy just didn't work for me, and there were a few stupid character reactions (Jennifer Love-Hewitt) straight out of the cheesy Disney flicks of the 1970s, you know where the badguys get soaked with a vat of milk and somehow that defeats them even though they have guns. While there are a few action scenes of merit, overall the film was slow-paced and... I'm forced to say it... just not really worth watching. It just lacked the "cult appeal" that bad films have to have to turn bad into good.
Who should see this film:
-- action movie fans, but only on a rainy day and only if you feel obligated to
-- members of the American secret service who somehow have a British accent
It means a great deal that a Jackie Chan fanatic like me would give this movie only a 5 out of 10. Avoid!
