    A Rush Hour tv show would just be Miami Vice. Or Martial Law, which we *still* haven’t gotten on DVD, for some inexplicable reason. Maybe they can at least get Chan and Tucker in for occasional cameos, though.

    Question for Mighty Peking Man: What do you think was the last “real” Jackie Chan movie? The dude turns 61 in a few weeks.

    • WHO AM I? was the last “real” Jackie Chan film in my opinion. One that comes close is LITTLE BIG SOLDIER, which I was pleasantly surprised with.

      One that I really liked was “Shinjuku Incident.” by no means was it the kind of JC flick we’ve known to love from the guy, but it was a solid movie in its own right!

        Can I ask why you chose Who Am I? That movie gets a lot of love but I remember being disappointed when I first saw it. The acting was beyond horrible, (even for a JC flick), and it was one of the first Chan movies I’d seen in a while which relied very heavily on wires and doubling. Stupid reason to be disappointed I know, but it was difficult to take after seeing Jackie do so much of his own stuff in previous movies.

        • Hey Dan! Thanks for the reply.

          Even though I don’t think it’s an undisputed classic like Police Story, Drunken Master or Wheels on Meals, it was the last movie that I felt had that JC magic to it (the comedy, his fighting style, and the overall “feel”…. that’s the best I can explain it. Sure, the acting was bad (but what JC movie didn’t have non-Chinese actors speaking terrible english with bad acting skills?), but it was paced right. Funny you mention wires… I don’t remember seeing any of that. All I know is it had more than a few solid fight scene, as well as car chase that was reminiscent of his 80s flicks.

    They should have got Kevin Hart for Rush Hour. And what’s wrong with Chris Tucker? Does Jackie hate him that much.

    James Lew did the pilot, he’s currently handling the action for LUKE CAGE

    Jeff Wolfe from Once Upon a Time In China and America, Knock Off is stunt coordinator for the series (he handled the action for Revolution etc)

    LOL, those youtube comments are just out of this world. Do they know it’s just a tv series on CBS and not the actual movie? Of course it looks a little rusty, it’s a tv show you dumb bums!!!!

    Damn, that’s some dull and lifeless shit.
