Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Great stunts....but the novelty wears off fast"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Even in an 'off' picture like Mr. Nice Guy, it is impossible not to like [Chan]; he's so open and good-natured and takes pride in what he does."
‑ David Bartholomew, Film Journal International
"Some really first-rate Chan action scenes in here."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"As with Jackie Chan's other stateside releases, this is contrived, blockheaded, and lacking in narrative logic. But also like those other films, it is a highly enjoyable ride."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The plot has never been more inane, the supporting actors never less talented. Yet the action is as astonishing as ever"
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Sub-standard Jackie Chan fare."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
