Shanghai Knights is a 2003 British-American action comedy-film. It is the sequel to Shanghai Noon. It was directed by David Dobkin and written byAlfred-Gough and Miles-Millar.
In 1887, Chon Lin (Fann Wong) is drinking tea with her father, the Keeper of the Imperial Seal-of China, in the Forbidden City. She tells him her brother, Chon Wang (Jackie-Chan), is doing well as a sheriff in Carson City,Nevada, but her father replies that her brother is dead to him. At that moment, Lord Nelson Rathbone (Aidan-Gillen), leads a band of Boxers into the city, who attack the Keeper. Despite Lin’s efforts, her father is killed and the seal is stolen. With his last breath, he gives Lin a box and tells her to give it to her brother.
Meanwhile, Chon Wang is doing well as sheriff, having captured an impressive array of fugitives. His deputy is relaxing with a book called “Roy O’Bannon Vs. The-Mummy”, a highly fictionalized account of the events of the first film that now portrays Wang’s “Shanghai Kid” as-a cowardly sidekick, which Wang is dismayed. Wang receives a parcel, which contains the puzzle box and Lin’s letter, telling him their father is dead and that she has tracked the murderer to-London.
