Jules Verne's classic tale of cross continental adventure now comes to life in this hilarious adventure spectacular featuring action superstar Jackie Chan as the new master of globetrotting comedy.
Join crackpot inventor Phileas Fogg (hit Brit comedian Steve Coogan) and his trusted French valet (Jackie Chan) as they commit to a wager to circumnavigate the world in a record 80 days. Travelling by ship, train, hot air balloon, flying machine and a host of other bizarre 19th century contraptions, these foolhardy adventurers encounter many obstacles in their path - not the least of which is Arnold Schwarzenegger as a randy Turkish prince, Kathy Bates as grumpy Queen Victoria and John Cleese as a dimwitted London bobby.
From the director of the Adam Sandler hits The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy; Around the World in 80 Days is deliciously funny, deliriously action-packed escapism for the whole family.
I found this quite entertaining a little more lively than the original movie, i liked the story line it was light heart ed although it was full of action with out all the gore that accompanies most action movies these day's. It was fun to watch a good movie for most of the family.
