Jackie Chan stars as Jimmy Tong, a taxi driver who inadvertently gets involved in a high-level espionage plot when he takes up a job as a chauffeur for millionaire businessman Clark Devlin (Jason Isaacs). After Devlin is injured in an attack, he entrusts Jimmy with his prized possession - a high-tech tuxedo that gives its wearer extraordinary abilities - and tasks him with completing his mission to stop a dangerous group of villains from using a powerful technology to gain control of the world.

With the help of his boss's assistant, Del Blaine (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Jimmy embarks on a thrilling adventure that takes him from New York City to Hong Kong, as he uses his newfound powers to fight off bad guys and uncover the truth behind Devlin's true identity. Along the way, he must also balance his secret agent duties with keeping his real job as a taxi driver.

As Jimmy becomes more adept at using the tuxedo's incredible abilities - like super strength, speed, and agility - he starts to uncover a sinister plot that involves a ruthless villain named Dietrich Banning (Ritchie Coster) who will stop at nothing to achieve his goal of world domination. With time running out, Jimmy must use his wits and his powers to stop Banning and his minions before it's too late.

The Tuxedo is a fast-paced action-comedy that showcases Jackie Chan's signature blend of martial arts and physical comedy. His comedic timing and acrobatic prowess are on full display throughout the film, making it a must-see for fans of the legendary performer. Jennifer Love Hewitt also holds her own as Del Blaine, delivering sassy one-liners and keeping up with the high-octane action.

The film also boasts impressive visual effects, particularly in the scenes where Jimmy uses the tuxedo's high-tech features. From flying through the air to blending in with his surroundings, the tuxedo provides some truly memorable moments that will have audiences cheering.

Despite its high-concept premise, The Tuxedo does have a few flaws, namely a convoluted plot that can be hard to follow at times. Additionally, some of the humor falls flat and the villainous characters lack depth. However, these minor quibbles are easily overshadowed by the film's entertaining action sequences and charismatic leads.

All in all, The Tuxedo is a fun and exciting adventure that showcases Jackie Chan at his best. With a blend of humor, action, and high-tech gadgetry, it's the perfect film for anyone looking for a thrilling ride.

The Tuxedo is a 2002 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 30.
