Jackie Chan. The name itself conjures images of ninjas and wall running, manic fights and quick-zoom stares. After that you can add humour, chinese culture, all sorts of kung fu and proper stunts.
Story? No, no, no. That’s not what JC movies are about. And anyway, Jackie himself is so cool and macho in a sort of underdog way that he is always watchable. Music is not as bad as some I’ve seen but it isn’t Chariots of Fire.
Actually not his worst movie ever and when I went back to the fights – really well choreographed – I found they measured up well if sped up a bit in fast-forward mode. It’s an older film so there is more emphasis on what they can do rather than how fast.
Still fun but not for non-Jackie fans.
Like the frog, when being driven in a fast car, I shall leave this one behind.
Watch if on TV?
As the eagle shall fly from the ocelot when said ocelot has a machine gun, so shall I change channel.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid like the snake when dragon is flying a jet fighter.
