A bad guy named Snakehead Julian Sands is after a medallion and the child who can give it the power to grant eternal life. Along the way, both Eddie and Snakehead get medallion-ized superpowers. It's fun to see Jackie try out his new powers, but no amount of flying around or recovering from massive injuries will ever be as magical as seeing Jackie fight when he was at his best.
Back in the day, Chan was his own special effect, and that was plenty special enough. After all those years and broken bones, it isn't surprising that he is ready to let the technology do some of the work for him. And it isn't surprising that Chan sees some appeal in a story about a charm that can bestow eternal life and strength.
But it isn't as much fun. The rest is just dumb jokes an extended double entendre exchange that has some of the Interpol cops thinking that Eddie and Watson are gay, some potty humor , a brief love interest, and the aforementioned special effects.
Families can talk about whether they would want to have -- or to be able to give -- the powers granted by the medallion. What would be the benefits and what would be the drawbacks?
