people will envy us as the generation that lived in the same age as Jackie Chan, one of the greatest geniuses in the history of cinema:
It is rather like Charlie Chaplin with violence.
Agreed I saw ‘Rumble in the Bronx’ in the theater and at the end the a near-packed crowd gave it a standing ovation. Clearly I don’t attend too many high-brow artistic movies, and clearly I do not spend too much time among folks of highly refined taste, but to this day that remains the only film I have attended that received an ovation of any kind.
The ladder Fight in First Strike The Bike Fight in Project A. Practically all the fights in Project A 2 and Miracles The Dancing fight in Gorgous. Who Am I? lots of great stunts……… More of his Asian films have the splender of acrobatics and other such marvels that are down played in his American Films.
Police Story 2, Drunken Master 2 (the original cut), and City Hunter- which is a cultural amalgam that knocked my socks off.
Love this post, and definitely agree. My husband had me watching Jackie Chan films even before his American stuff started. Truly amazing.
When people tell me that men don’t love ballet, I respond: “Nonsense! It’s just that men like a different kind of ballet. Our favorite ballet star is Jackie Chan. That’s man ballet!”
