Lacks confidence in its own much bigger, potentially fascinating story -- an American tale of pageantry and history.

If you see only one martial arts Western this year (and there is probably an excellent chance of that), this is the one.
This one looks like a sure bet for seven weeks (at least) of audience good fortune.
The first hit movie western of the new century - wins us with a wink. It leaves you in a bright, happily cross-cultural mood. Adios, amigos. And vaya con Jackie Chan.
A refreshing movie that's so good natured, so confident of its ability to provoke not queasy awe or numb exhaustion but pure delight.
This enjoyable East-meets-Western likely will succeed on its own terms as a sure-fire, long-legged crowd-pleaser.
Jackie Chan's best American picture to date, breathes fresh life into the virtually dormant comedy-western.
