Rating: 2/4 -- ...Fogg essentially winds up playing second-banana to Passepartout - a disastrous choice that simply does not work. Full Review

What's new and nutty...is the physical comedy of Jackie Chan....[It] results in a martial-arts subplot nestled with surprising charm in Verne's fantasy of futurism and eccentrism.

Rating: 1/5 -- It's ironic that this film is less about traveling and more about beating the crap out of people all over the world. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- ...just another adventure comedy built around Jackie Chan, this time with Verne's travelogue tenuously holding the action scenes together. Full Review

Product Description:

In this raucous Disney adaptation of Jules Verne's classic adventure novel AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, Steve Coogan plays Phileas Fogg, a quirky inventor at the turn of the 20th century. After suffering rejection by England's Royal Academy of Science, Fogg strives to prove his scientific worth by accepting a challenge to circumnavigate the globe in a mere 80 days. Fogg, his cohort Passepartout (Jackie Chan), and his new love Monique (Cecile de France), find trouble and excitement as they make their way from Turkey to Morocco to the United States, and ultimately Fogg discovers that scientific validation is not all he needs for a successful life.

Jackie Chan shines in his role as Passepartout, who masquerades as Fogg's valet in an attempt to escape authorities after he robs the Bank of England. As he evades his enemies and keeps Fogg in the dark about his true background, Chan provides stellar comedic action and performs daring stunts. Celebrity cameos punctuate the film, with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a polygamous Turkish ruler (filmed before the start of his campaign for California governor) and Owen and Luke Wilson playing the hilariously squabbling Wright Brothers. In addition to the lavish sets and nonstop action, this version of the classic remains true to the idea that one should hold on to dreams, no matter how improbable or outlandish.
