Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a merry surfeit, lofted by calisthenic wow above the usual level for late-era Jackie and Wilson's mellow-gold delivery."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"[A] mundane sequel."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This innocent, sixties-style, big-budget comedy-romance-action-adventure romp is solid family entertainment that would make any self-respecting kid's jaw drop for a good two hours. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"You have to wonder when these lackluster Chan and Wilson vehicles will end."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Formulaic to the point of distraction and saddled with one of the stupidest musical scores in recent memory."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
"Like an Abbott & Costello comedy, Shanghai Knights is truly dumb, sometimes inconsistent, but awfully funny."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Grand, undemanding entertainment."
‑ Glenn Lovell, San Jose Mercury News
"Martial arts buddy sequel is exactly what you expect."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The movie seems to have been made simply because these guys should get together again."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Of course Shanghai Knights is fluff, but it's entertaining fluff, and, like the westerns of yore, a nice way to pass a Saturday afternoon."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Knights will surely find an enthusiastic following before it gets to video."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A desperately unfunny action comedy, mirthless not only in its effect on an audience but in its whole aura."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Chan/Wilson chemistry that drove the first film and draws people back to this one hasn't lost any of its snap."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"... The perfect throwaway entertainment for this time of year."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Divertida continuação de Bater ou Correr, mantém o bom humor e a leveza do original."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
