San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Coraci has given us a film that is not only amusing, but well-acted, and not only well-acted, but gorgeous. Micha Klein's animated transitions alone, which are used to signal each change in location, are wondrous and lovely to behold.

Kids deserve an adventure movie like this, one that might inspire them to become junior inventors and ignite their interest in the world's many wonders.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
None of this amounts to anything more than goofy fun, but that's what the ads promise, and the movie delivers.

What's new and nutty, though, is the physical comedy of Jackie Chan as Fogg's manservant.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
Not even Chan's imaginative fight choreography redeems this folly.

USA Today

Just going through the motions here (and mild ones at that), both Chan and the movie should have stayed at home.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
Any resemblance between Jules Verne's marvelous science fiction novel or Mike Todd's enjoyable 1956 movie is pure happenstance. This is simply a Jackie Chan movie pitched to youngsters who enjoy slapstick fights and goofy caricatures.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A peppy, fast-moving, wafer-thin amusement that's fine for kids if you don't mind a lot of Three Stooges-style martial arts. For grown-ups, it's the equivalent of a 59-cent tin globe.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
With the exception of one masterfully choreographed - and improbably bloodless - martial-arts gang fight, the new version of Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days is one of the lamest remakes of a classic film I've ever seen.
