The Mandarin/Chinese song that Johnny Knoxville sing that can be seen on the trailer is actually Jackie Chan's song 'Ming Ming Bai Bai Wo De Xin" (Please Understand My Heart). Back in Hong Kong, beside known as an actor Jackie Chan has released several albums as a singer and he's a good singer as well. See more »
When they ware crossing in to China, at the Chinese border and later when in the interrogation room. Bennie Chan (Jackie Chan) as Chinese could/should have speak Chinese (Even with Hong Kong dialect) to the Chinese border police! He also has spoken mandarin-Chinese in the movie before this scene.

Look, I am a huge Jackie Chan fan and I have seen quite a few of his films that were accessible to American audiences. He has done some remarkable movies in his day. Anyone the hasn't seen Police Story 1 or 2 is missing some of the most hardcore action ever put to film. Legend of the Drunken Master is a classic film. Project A, Armour of the Gods, Rumble in the Bronx, Rush Hour, and on and on and on. I love Jackie Chan.
This film however is bad. I mean capital B A D. The action sequences are poorly filmed. The dialogue is terrible. The story progression is horrendous. The acting is atrocious. I wanted to like this movie...I really did. Jackie Chan has broken down so many barriers. His comedic style is something that has given me laughs upon laughs for years. But it just doesn't work this time.
I chalk it up to a poor script, the fact that he is probably slowing down some in his older age, and just bad direction, bad writing, and horrible editing.
Watch at your own risk.
