Goofs

When Samantha tries to evade capture, she used a taser to temporarily incapacitate three persons by using it on the pool of water. Not only is the charge on taser not strong enough to pass through a large surface of water to achieve that effect, the method would not work at all as all three of them are wearing thick leather shoes.

Adequate but feels dated
10 November 2016 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a Hong Kong policeman who has to catch an American con man, chasing him from Macau to Russia. Along the way, they encounter trouble with Russian gangs and Mongolian tribes. They have to do everything to survive.

"Skiptrace" is in English but it is clear that it is aimed at the Chinese market. The film itself is adequately entertaining, with a lot of action scenes done in a funny way that makes you chuckle. However, it just looks like every other recent Jackie Chan film, even the action sequences are beginning to feel strangely familiar. It is an adequate choice to kill an evening, but don't expect too much because Hollywood action films have moved on but this hasn't.
