Movie Skiptrace (2016)

20170318:
I had some doubt on how good Skiptrace would be. Specifically, Netflix rated the movie for me at only 3 stars, and that worried me.

Bennie Chan (Jackie Chan)

However, I enjoyed the movie and I would say that as an action movie, I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars, as a Jackie Chan movie, I'd give it about 3.5 out of 5 stars, and as a general movie, I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars (just as Netflix suggested).

With the previous ratings in mind, I should remember for future reference that Netflix ratings can't account for my mood. Sometimes I'd just rather watch a 3-star action or comedy film over a 5-star Oscar-award winning drama.

Connor Watts (Johnny Knoxville)

While the jokes were here and there, and the plot was full of standard fluff, Jackie Chan manages to execute some new and enjoyable action scenes.

Overall, the movie's poor reviews are warranted, but if you're a fan of Jackie Chan, I'd recommend it.

I decided to give it a 4 star rating on Netflix. I would give it a 7 out of 10 on IMDb.com.

That explosion blows Jackie into the air.
Hehe. The Notebook
"I don't believe we could get pregnant the way we did it."
Haha. Hilarious escape scene.
Ha. Fighting against brass knuckles. "Wow."
That Russian doll sequence is pretty cool.


OMG. First time I heard this type of humor in a Jackie Chan movie: she gets stuck, "Size D?", "Double D."
Breaks glass. "Can you hear me now?"
"Nice and crunchy, what is it?" "Goat testicle."
Ha. He grabs more.
Ha. Can't make it uphill.
"How bout this?" Smiles.

Dasha (Eve Torres as Eve Gracie) with "LOVE" and "HATE"

Beer Pong
Jackie sings Adele's Rolling in the Deep.
"I would never have figured you were an Adele fan." "'Rolling in the Deep' is a classic."
"Everything you say is just horse apples. See." Horse shits.
"She's the Siberian Terminator"
Hahahaha. Now he wants to fight.


What!?! (When Samantha comes to his boss for help, it seems like he's in on it. We'll see.)
Ah. My suspicion was confirmed.
Ha. The one guy gets into it.
Hahaha. "Are they gone?" Bennie collapses.
