Spy Next Door is just a 'Chinese' version of The Pacifier by Vin Diesal

From the trailer itself, the first thing that went into my mind is "Hey, isn't that familiar" and yes I was right..

Spy Next Door is very similar to The Pacifier staring Vin Diesal

The Pacifier was release back in 2005 and after 5 years we have a dupe - Spy Next Door with added Chinese theme staring Jackie Chan. But wait there's more, yea more.. The Pacifier is again a similar copy from Kindergarten Cop

Kindergarten Cop staring Arnold Schwarzenegger was release 1990 which is like 15 years before The Pacifier and 20 years before Spy Next Door. So I guess this has to be the original plot.

So what similarity they have beside one macho guy posting with few playful kids in the poster?

Well they all are super spy / kung fu master / cop who was first time ever been assign to take care of a bunch of kids.

While on his babysitting duty, he faces some other thread which lead him now with double task - make sure the kids are safe from harm and kick some bad @$$

So if you have watched either of the earlier title mentioned, you get the idea what Spy Next Door is about.

Personally I find this movie kinda lame, and did I mention that his spy gadget was kinda outdated too? They were like gadget we saw from the movie back in 70s 80s. Joke were not that good either. Most disappointing of all the fight scene was like 20% of the movie. Perhaps as Jackie is getting older he is repackaging his image to a family man instead of the HOO-HAA Master.

The movie is short, approximately 1 hour 30 minutes and yet the character development were draggy, way too draggy.

It is a so so movie so 2.5 out of 5 for The Spy Next Door

Is Jackie drunk? He seems to be superb happy doing so.
