This is a Jackie Chan movie. Don't expect deep meditations on t he frailty of human existence. There's plenty of action as Jackie battles against the odds to save the princess--lots of great choreographed fight scenes. He teams up with wild west bandit Owen Wilson and the Sioux Indians. This film was done at a time when cultures could still meet, clash, and overcome their differences. Today, the project would likely be rejected because there are too many cultural stereotypes. So sit back and enjoy the fun while the film is still available. Owen Wilson is supposed to be very witty here, especially in the buddy scenes with Jackie Chan, but I thought they dragged. The real hero is the unnamed Indian wife.
