Jackie Chan’s teaming with Johnny Knoxville in ‘Skiptrace’ lacks ‘Rush Hour,’ ‘Shanghai Noon’ spark

Jackie Chan tries recapturing his “Shanghai Noon” and “Rush Hour” magic with “Skiptrace,” which sees the sexagenarian kung-fu king teaming up with vulgar American comedian Johnny Knoxville on a globe-hopping, crime-stopping adventure. All the principals are plenty capable, but this is hardly any of these folks’ peak.

Chan plays a Hong Kong detective grappling with the loss of his partner. Circumstances saddle him with a slick-talking American hustler (Knoxville) on the run from the Russian mob. The two try to identify a notorious, mysterious crime boss, while scrapping through Russia, Mongolia and China.
