As 'The Chosen One', Murphy's on a madcap mission to save The Golden Child, a youth with mystical powers who's been abducted by an evil cult. He battles a band of super-nasties, scrambles through a booby-trapped chamber of horrors and traverses Tibet to obtain a sacred dagger. But it's Murphy's wit that turns out to be his sharpest weapon in this 24-karat comedy adventure.

Rotten: A half-baked comedy without a heart.
Simply a fun and well written movie. Although not an Eddie Murphy fan , I have always enjoyed this picture. The humor is well done, some excellent character actors appear in the film and Murphy actually does a good job. The few special effects were good given the time the movie was made. If you enjoy a tongue-in-cheek and not-too-serious comedy with a splash of fantasy, you should check this out. (Example: if you liked Big Trouble in Little China - for anyone who even knows what that was - this one might be for you)
I-I-I-I-I want the kniiiife, pleeease. (Watch and you will find out why)
An absolute classic. Those who give this poor reviews are insane. This movie was funny and worth the $$. Eddie Murphy is a gem. A relatively clean movie for preteens who are bored with the G movies.
This movie is just fine..
Its obviously not a serious film and is not out for any oscars but it is a good hanging out lazy Sunday flick.
