  2. Jackie Chan reboots the Police Story series once again this Christmas. Police Story 2013 takes place in Mainland China instead of Hong Kong. And much like 2004's New Police Story, this film is darker and grittier than the original 1985 film. Jackie Chan even had his hair cut short to look like a Mainland Chinese officer. Police Story 2013 hits Chinese cinemas on Christmas Eve.
  3. Thanks to Area Seven's Police Story 2013 thread and the Jackie Chan movie collection I got for Christmas, I thought it was time for a thread for it. So the movies I got in the collection are as follows: Dragon Lord, Twin Dragons, Project A and Project A2, Armour of God, AoG 2: Operation Condor, Police Story III: Supercop and The Accidental Spy. Most of these I've seen before, albeit not in a long time and three of them, Dragon Lord, Twin Dragons and Project A2. Dragon Lord was interesting inasmuch as its one of Jackie's early movies. There's lots of classic Jackie goofiness but I can't help but feel that most of what happens in the movie doesn't have much to do with the actual plot. Note: I read about this movie long before I saw it in Jackie's autobiography where it says the movie starts off with Jackie sending a note to his girlfriend via balloon. Someone must have mistranslated because that scene doesn't happen until fully half-way through the movie and it was a kite and said girl wasn't even really Jackie's girlfriend. Go figure, eh? Twin Dragons was much more interesting. Jackie plays a dual role as twin brothers separated at birth. One is a world-famous pianist and conductor and the other is a street punk. Hijinx ensue and the two are mistaken for each other. Project A: A classic Jackie movie and a well put together period piece with one of his most well known stunts. I really have to wonder how much that clock tower fall hurt, including that he had to do it more than once. Armour of God: The movie that almost killed Jackie with a stunt that wasn't much of a stunt at all. If you pay attention, you'll see that early in the movie Jackie has short hair and then later has much longer hair... to hide the surgical scars. Operation Condor: Mistankenly labeled here in the States as the first movie in the AoG duology, Condor has to be one of my fav Jackie movies. My fav moment has to be in the wind tunnel when he yells "Superman!" and flies toward one of the bad guys and punches him. Haven't seen the others just yet.
  4. The Armour of God saga continues with Chinese Zodiac. Jackie Chan reprises his role as the treasure hunter Asian Hawk, as he begins his quest to take back 12 bronze animal heads of the Chinese zodiac that were looted during the Second Opium War. Chinese Zodiac premieres in Hong Kong on December 12. Official Site
  5. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution and Jackie Chan's 100th film, 1911 Revolution premieres in Chinese theaters on September 23 and in Hong Kong on September 29. The film is directed by Chan, who stars as revolutionary leader Huang Xing. The film also stars Chan's son Jaycee Chan, Li Bingbing (Ni-chang in The Forbidden Kingdom), Hu Ge (Xiaoyao in Chinese Paladin), Joan Chen (Wan Jung in The Last Emperor) and Zhang Ziyi (Mulan, Karai in TMNT).

  6. The Kung Fu Kid Overbrook Entertainment/JW Productions/China Film Group/Columbia Pictures, 2010 Directed by Harald Zwart (Agent Cody Banks, The Pink Panther 2) Written by Robert Mark Kamen (The Karate Kid I-III, The Transporter trilogy) Running Time: 140 minutes Rated PG for martial arts violence. (Author's Note: I refuse to call this film The Karate Kid, as it has absolutely nothing to do with karate.) Cast Jaden Smith (Christopher Jr. in The Pursuit of Happyness) as "Shao Dre" Parker Jackie Chan (like nobody here knows who he is...) as Mr. Han Taraji P. Henson (Shug in Hustle & Flow, Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) as Sherry Parker Wen Wen Han as Mei Ying Zhenwei Wang as Cheng Yu Rongguang (Han De in Three Kingdoms, Po Kwang in My Father is a Hero) as Master Li Michelle Yeoh (like nobody here knows who she is...) as the Cobra Woman Synopsis Dre Parker and his mother move from Detroit, MI, to Beijing, China, to start a new life. There, Dre falls in love with a local girl named Mei Ying, but quickly becomes a victim of the local bully Cheng, who studies Master Li's merciless kung fu style. One day, when Cheng and his gang are about to kill Dre at his apartment, Dre is saved by Mr. Han, the maintenance man. Han has Master Li tell his students to leave Dre alone, but at the same time, he enters Dre in an upcoming kung fu tournament. And thus, until the day of the tournament, Han teaches Dre the ways of kung fu. Lowdown If this all sounds very familiar, it's a complete remake of the 1984 classic The Karate Kid - only with different characters and settings. Just replace "Cobra-kai" with "Red Dragons" and "wax-on, wax-off" with "jacket on, jacket off". Master Li's lines are, word-for-word, exactly the same as those of John Kreese; only that they're in Chinese. Aside from the martial arts, the only real difference is the main character. Jaden Smith's role of "Shao Dre" Parker has the same premise as that of Daniel Larusso in the original - he gets bullied, he hates where he's at, and he works hard to prove himself in the end. However, that's where the similarities end. Being the son of Will Smith, Jaden displays all of his father's on-screen mannerisms and antics all over this film to the point that you won't be able to take this film seriously. Jackie Chan is always entertaining in every movie he stars in (even the crappy films like Disney's Around the World in 80 Days and The Tuxedo), and his performance as Mr. Han is no exception. There really is no comparing between Mr. Han and the original's Mr. Miyagi, as both of those roles were played by exceptionally legendary actors. There are just two major problems with this film. The first is its title. I have no problem with the film using the same script, but calling it The Karate Kid is just blasphemy, as there's absolutely no karate in this film. Another problem is its running time. The training sequences and fight scenes are great, but the movie can do without some of these other character scenes. And this movie tries too hard to sell itself as a promotional tool for tourism in China, using the Great Wall and other key tourist attractions in the middle of the film. Despite the shortcomings, this film is surprisingly entertaining for the whole family. Still, it's always better to stick with the original.
