It's about friggin time.
And they're both playing characters that they each play very well. Chan a Drunkin Master, and Lee a Monk. I cannot wait for the fight between the two. Even if it ends in a draw, it'll be movie magic.
I had thought Jet Li had abandoned acting for making a film about Buddhism. Good to see him back.
Also good to see something 'loosely based' on Journey to the West. Those always interest me, the myriad ways those can turn out.
A must see for me. Maybe a bunch of us can see this drunk at Botcon.
Will certainly check this out when it's released.
meh. this guys are over the hill.
I just saw that movie war, I needless to say, jet li was the best actor in that movie. Jason Stantham is a horrible actor. I always knew he sucked, but damn, he really shines in this movie.
I'll see it.
i'm so going to see this...thanks for the heads up
i am so going to see this movie...
so far, every movie each did, i really liked...so a movie with both, equals a win.
I haven't forgotten how Jackie Chan insulted all of his American fans...
DEFINITE pass on this one.
I'll see it.
Though I hadn't heard about Chan insulting American fans...
*goes off to Google*
IIRC people got angry because Chan said that his American films suck and that he only does them for the money, which I thought was pretty funny since anyone who has actually watched them should have known that already.
This... this actually looks ok.
Considering Rush Hour 1, 2, 3, Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights are all the same movie I believe it.
I agree with Nick.
Does anyone have the link where Jackie is actually quoted because this is not it? I'd like to read it to see if it is as blatant as this article makes it out to be.
I enjoyed all Jackie's North American movies even Around the World in 80 days but his old Hong Kong films are certainly my favorite examples of his work. Police Story 1 & 2, Wheels on Meals and Dragons Forever come to mind as the reason why I'm a Jackie Chan fan.
I know Jackie doesn't have a huge respect for the American film industry as even he comments in his Autobiography about how American film makers didn't know how to use his skills or his brand of comedy. I just find it hard to believe he would completely slam his North American work, when films like Myth were really sub par as well. Anyway, I'll always love Jackie Chan even if Jackie Chan doesn't love me....
So yes I will definitely check out Hidden Kingdom.
Well I have a link but can't seem to get it working. There is an article on CNN .com about Jackie Chan where he says he doesn't understand American Humor and how he doesn't like how action sequences are done in Hollywood. Just search "jackie chan american film". He says he does the US films to get money to support Chinese cultural/language initiatives he's founded even though he doesn't understand the American audience.
If this is the article it is far different than what is portrayed on the "chud link below". Jackie is critical of his NA work but at no point does he call the American audience stupid or the fans of those films idiots.
I work to get money to get money to do the things I want to do as well. Jackie was not insulting American's, he was simply saying he doesn't understand American humor, big difference. This is the same as American's not understanding chinese humor.
Unless there is another article I'm not aware of Jackie Chan has been intentionally misquoted. Find proof to back up the Chud article or its just fiction.
