"This version of the classic novel focuses on Passepartout (Chan), a Chinese thief who steals a valuable jade Buddha and then seeks refuge in the traveling companionship of an eccentric London inventor and adventurer, Phileas Fogg (Coogan), who has taken on a bet with members of his gentlemens' club that he can make it around the world in a mere 80 days. Along the way, Passepartout uses his amazing martial arts abilities to defend Fogg from the many dangers they face. One major threat to their adventure is a detective that's following them. Why? Just as Fogg and Passeportout left London, a major bank was robbed, with Fogg suspected of using the "around the world" trip as an excuse to escape."Um...what the bloody fuck? I can't be the only person who's cringing about this description. Not even a good one to do, nowadays. 80 days? If they have two brain cells to rub together, they'll just be surprised that it took so long.
*sigh* And, as usual, I'll look like a grumpy old man for hating it. Ah well, fine.
