Jackie Chan reunites with noted Hong Kong director Stanley Tong (Rumble in the Bronx) for the action comedy, Kung Fu Yoga (read our review), which hits Blu-ray & DVD on August 8, 2017, courtesy of Well Go USA.

Jack (Chan), a world-renowned archaeology professor, and his team set out on a grand quest to locate the lost ancient Indian treasure of Magadha when they are ambushed by a team of mercenaries and left for dead. Using his vast knowledge of history and kung fu, Jack leads his team on a race around the world to beat the mercenaries to the treasure and prevent an ancient culture from being lost forever.

Jackie Chan and Stanley Tong created magic together in a string of some of Chan’s most loved films of the 90s, including 1992’s Police Story 3: Supercop, 1995’s Rumble in the Bronx and 1996’s Police Story 4: First Strike. Kung Fu Yoga will mark their first feature together since 2005’s The Myth.

Co-starring with Chan are Lay Zhang (of the K-pop group EXO), Miya Muqi (Tomb Robber), Aarif Rahman (Bruce Lee, My Brother) and Indian film stars Sonu Sood (Arundhati) and Ileana D’Cruz (Happy Ending).

    I have a bad feeling this is going to be terrible. Stanley Tong already makes a lot of ridiculous things in his movies but atleast he put kickass Jackie Chan moments in there. Well Jackie Chan is far from the man he once was so I expect a lot of outrageous and silly dumb stuff from this. I feel this should be a good contender against The Medallion.

  2. Dan says:

    There’s no way it could possibly be as bad as The Medallion, lol. But yeah, I don’t expect much from Jackie’s movies anymore.

    I think they’re confusing yoga with ice-skating. =p

    SONU is a great actor for playing bad roles but would have been better if it were SALMAN KHAN, that would have made waves in islamic nations and indo- china neighbours. Simply put totall insane gross in Asia.

    ‘And here’s the trailer for the greatest Jackie Chan/Stanley Tong project ever’

    That’s now how you spell Rumble in the Bronx.

    • Rumble in the Bronx isn’t bad. A great introduction to JC, that’s for sure. But better than Police Story 3? I just can’t get over the colorful Mad Max rejects, that low budget kid – and like Police Story 4, Nice Guy, etc – it suffers from not having a satisfying finale. But it does have some great hand-to-hand action sequences scattered throughout, and it was Jackie’s REAL introduction to America, so I do give it some legitimate respect.

  6. HKFanatic says:

    “Supercop” is indeed one of the all-time best Jackie Chan movies but…I gotta give the edge to “First Strike.” That said, “Supercop” has a way better climactic action scene than “First Strike.”

    • First Strike was always sorta boring to me. It doesn’t even feel like it’s part of the series. A plot that involves nuclear warheads and Russia? Come on. The cop Jackie plays in Police Story 1-3 isn’t James Bond.

      • HKFanatic says:

        I agree that it feels like a stretch to tie it in with the Police Story series, but I appreciate the film in its own right. The opening sequence with Jackie on skiis is a spectacular homage to classic James Bond setpieces like “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” and later in the film you get Jackie Chan’s famous ladder fight, which is inarguably some of the best choreography Jackie has ever done. I also happen to love the sequence in Jackie’s hotel where he flees from Nathan Jones’ giant baddy.

        The ending, though, with Jackie fighting underwater and later simply driving a car into a boat to stop the bad guy is definitely one of his weakest climaxes. It pales in comparison to Supercop’s showstopping finale.

        • Anything involving “under water” action in movies should be banned. Thunderball is one of the greatest 007 movies of all time, but I have to kick it aside because of all that underwater stuff. Now the car scene in Spy Who Loved Me… that’s a different story.

    My guess is it will be some what similar to the modern day parts of the Myth- a kung fu archaeologist in india. I actually enjoyed that film for the most part, so i’m hopeful this will be ok.

  8. ToryK says:

    For the first time ever, I am now firmly in the “Jackie needs to retire from lead roles” camp. He needs to find a few new talents he believes in, and start directing, choreographing, and producing. He can’t move like he used to, and that’s definitely affecting his ability to perform in stunt-filled extravaganzas. It’s all digital now. I genuinely think his best move would be to get behind the camera, and pass on some knowledge. He can’t do this forever.

  9. Dan says:

    I’ll watch anything with Jackie but this one looks kind of painful. The guy is spreading himself way too thin these days.
