Rob-B-Hood (2006)

Jackie Chan has returned from the mind-boggling Hollywood achievements of first time director Kevin Donovan's The Tuxedo [2002] and comedy genius Frank Coraci's remake of Around the World in 80 Days [2004] to reclaim his spot as the king of Hong Kong movies. Reuniting with his handpicked director Benny Chan Muk-Sing and longtime action directing associate Nicky Li Chung-Chi, Chan casts himself alongside Louis Koo Tin-Lok and Michael Hui Koon-Man to create a 21st century Hong Kong version of a 3 Stooges crime caper. Producers populate the screenplay with a supporting cast of every excellent actor currently working in Hong Kong. The US DVD release is well worth your time.
