Cannonball Run II is a 1984 comedy action film directed by Hal Needham and starring Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, and Dean Martin. The movie is a sequel to the 1981 film Cannonball Run, and features a star-studded cast that includes Jackie Chan, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Shirley MacLaine. The film follows the same basic plot as the original movie, with a group of eccentric characters competing in a high-speed illegal race across America. This time, the race is sponsored by wealthy Arab sheikhs, who offer a million-dollar prize to the winner.

Burt Reynolds reprises his role as the charming and cunning driver J.J. McClure, while Dom DeLuise returns as his bumbling sidekick Victor Prinzim. The two are joined by a range of new characters, including Jamie Blake (Dean Martin), a retired racecar driver; Morris Fenderbaum (Sammy Davis Jr.), a con artist disguised as a priest; and Jackie Chan, who plays a Japanese race driver named Jackie Chan.

The movie is known for its fast-paced action sequences, which feature a range of high-speed stunts and comedic gags. The characters drive a range of exotic vehicles, including a Lamborghini Countach, a Ferrari 308 GTS, and a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow.

One of the highlights of the film is the chemistry between Reynolds and DeLuise, whose characters play off each other's strengths and weaknesses. Reynolds brings his trademark charisma and wit to the role of J.J. McClure, while DeLuise provides comic relief as the hapless Victor Prinzim.

The supporting cast is equally impressive, with Dean Martin offering a suave and sophisticated performance as Jamie Blake. Sammy Davis Jr. provides some of the film's biggest laughs as Morris Fenderbaum, while Jackie Chan's performance as Jackie Chan adds an element of international intrigue to the proceedings.

Overall, Cannonball Run II is a fun and entertaining film that is sure to delight fans of action-comedy movies. While it may not be as groundbreaking as the original film, it is a worthy successor that offers plenty of laughs and thrills for viewers of all ages.

Cannonball Run II is a 1984 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0 and a MetaScore of 13.
