The Jackie Chan film builds towards a buddy partnership as action remains unimaginative and the laughs few.
...unless you’ve ever found yourself wondering what it would be like to watch Jackie Chan dance to a Mongolian tribe’s cover version of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, you needn’t suffer Skiptrace.
Resident in this tired wistfulness is perhaps the next evolution of Chan’s cinematic icon.
If you like Jackie Chan's brand of cinema, make no mistake; you will enjoy this.
While the humour and fight scenes are good, the film is a little long and has its laggy moments.
Apart from its cast, Skiptrace has very little to offer that you can recommend, enjoy or even remember. This Chinese-American goulash with a sprinkling of Mongolian and Russian elements is just all over the place.
This film doesn't even amuse leave alone entertain. There can be little return (even if hypothesized) on that!
This is your run-of-the-mill Jackie Chan movie and that’s what makes it exciting because you get to see something you like on screen without modifications.
The only saving grace in the film are the beautiful landscapes and a song sequence in Mongolia that is beautifully captured by cinematographer Chan Chiying's lens.Overall, watch Skiptrace only if you are a Jackie Chan fan.
Much of what happens in Skiptrace appears manufactured; the dialogues are no exception.
Skiptrace is weighed down by a lack of chemistry between its leads, but saved by Jackie Chan's ever-reliable action work, and an enjoyable travelogue angle.Just skip it.
