A disposable Jackie Chan movie, The Medallion follows Hong Kong police officer Eddie Yang (Chan) who is hired by Interpol to capture a crime lord known as Snakehead (Julian Sands) and prevent him from kidnapping a chosen boy with special powers and a medallion that gives superhuman power and immortality.

Though panned by critics for its predictable and shallow plot, the Gordon Chan-directed movie is redeemed by its silly ending that is probably one of the best rides-into-the-sunset tropes ever: Eddie and his love interest Nicole James (Claire Forlani), who are both resurrected by the medallion, literally go for a really fast run.
