    Haha I kept begging jackie over and over again to do some more action or kung fu movie. Let’s everybody keep begging him to make more kung fu.

    • Alvin George says:

      STDZ, keep in mind that Jackie Chan is 61 years old now.

      • Dan says:

        That is exactly why I don’t want to see him do much king-fu anymore despite the fact that was my favourite part of his older movies. There’s no doubt he’s still in fantastic shape, but his fight scenes these days just aren’t up to his standards. Often he looks like a 60-year-old man fighting and that’s just awkward.

    • ColinJ says:

      I got to ask Jackie nearly 20 years ago about doing a DRUNKEN MASTER 3 and even then his response was he was getting too old, and that he would have to train for months to get in that kind of shape again.

      • Z Ravas says:

        Ouch! What’s sad is that twenty years ago probably would have been the perfect time for him to do Drunken Master 3. Now it is definitely too late.

  3. Ningen21 says:

    That poster looks more like Jackie’s getting ready to do a Chinese remake of Boondock Saints than Police Story.

  4. Ningen21 says:

    It’s called The Foreigner, because they’re still hoping to bring back Keanu for Speed 3.

  5. ColinJ says:

    I read that book probably 20 years ago now.

    I remember liking it, although the character Vietnamese, I think. Not that it matters.

  6. Dan says:

    Good Lord the man is a machine – at 62!! I am pretty stoked as the more Jackie Chan the better in my opinion, (even if some of his more recent efforts have been pretty meh).

    • Sharon Walsh says:

      I’m with you, Dan! The world is a better place for his films and the fun and laughter he will leave behind. Check out Railroad Tigers if you haven’t yet-it’s still no Drunken Master but it IS a killer story of a band of resistance fighters that were mostly ineffective until a soldier fell into their home (quite literally) and left them with a mission to undertake. It’s got heart and humor and action and sometimes a little too much CGI but it’s still the best thing I’ve seen him do in some time.

      • Dan says:

        Oh I am so looking forward to R.T.. I live in Canada so I normally watch more movies in the winter months. I often save them up for them, lol.

  8. Andrew Hernandez says:

    I want this to be good. I was surprised at how decent Skip Trace was, so it was crushing to find out how terrible Kung Fu Yoga ended up being.

  9. Jimmy P says:

    I can’t wait for this film. After being disappointed with his last few outings, it looks like Jackie has picked a winner. Hopefully, this will get him the dramatic recognition in the States that he has always wanted. Glad to see a director like Campbell give him a chance at a real dramatic role.

  10. Ningen21 says:

    I just hope Jackie’s character won’t need double vision to keep up with Brosnan’s character.

  11. Paul Bramhall says:

    I can’t believe this. First it was Scarlett Johansson playing a Japanese character….& now we have Jackie Chan playing a Vietnamese character! #asianwashing

    When is Hollywood going to let Vietnamese actors play Vietnamese rolls, I mean roles, man I’m hungry.

    • JJ Bona says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Let’s not forget we have another white guy playing a guy with a terrorist connection – not to mention a black guy performing a hip hop song? All that this trailer is missing is stronger character by Michelle Rodriguez. In all seriousness, this movie looks awesome. I think it’ll be Jackie’s best since Shinjuku Incident.

      • Sharon Walsh says:

        I’m with you, JJ, on the best since Shinjuku Incident. Oh and don’t forget, Brosnan is playing an IRISH guy with ties to terrorism…so it must be IRA related, right?? 😀

  12. Kiril Valkov says:

    After Kung Fu Yoga (which is one if the worst films in Jackie’s career imo) I decided to not bring any high hopes for his next screen exploits. On trailer this looks nice I must admit, I’ll wait for the movie to hit theaters and afterwards will decide whether this is good or not, although everything after this Kung Fu Yoga thing could be considered Oscar material on Chan side. True he has other disasters in his filmography, most films made under Lo Wei banner, Fantasy Mission Force, The Prisoner, Tuxedo, Spy next door, Thunderbolt, Battle Creek Brawl, Dragon Blade, Rush hour 3 and some others, but I hope that in his upcoming projects he will provide more quality rather than silly antics and bad CGI…

    • JJ Bona says:

      Kung Fu Yoga would have been a good film, but the co-stars received too much screen time (and action scenes) – all the other corny BS is acceptable, as expected from a Stanely Tong film. As much as I like Aarif Lee, I didn’t see the movie for him, I saw it for JC – and I think Lee may have had more action scenes. I don’t think JC had a legitimate “bad” film in his filmography, until he finally hit it big in the U.S. (Post-Rush Hour). Looking forward to Foreigner… a good director always helps. 🙂

      • Kiril Valkov says:

        Not that I’m not looking forward to it either, being fan of Jackie’s work since 1987, but with slight reserves over the final product. I’ve recently finished his latest autobiography and I was amazed by what type of person he was at the beginning of his career and how he transformed into a different person throughout the years. He is without a doubt a film legend and I do hope that his next projects will bring more quality roles on his account. As for Stanley Tong – the only collaboration between him and Jackie, which I’ve enjoyed would be Police Story 3: Supercop where the teaming with Michelle Yeoh was a high point and one of the movie’s strengths. Jackie is not in his prime anymore, but I think that he still has something to show to the audience apart from his stunt and martial arts skills.

      • Marijan says:

        kung fu yoga was to Indian movie for me i did not like it. the movie The myth was the same

    • Z Ravas says:

      Whoa, whoa, whoa. I’ll agree that Thunderbolt isn’t one of Jackie Chan’s -best- movies per se, and it was severely hampered by Jackie being injured at the time (never has it been so easy to spot Jackie’s stunt double), but I think it’s unfair to lump it in with a movie like Tuxedo or Dragon Blade! It’s still a competent mid-90’s Jackie Chan action movie. What do you have against Thunderbolt?

      • Kiril Valkov says:

        @Z Ravas: For you Thinderbolt is competent action movie, for me it was such a mess that it failed to deliver in any department (including the martial arts scenes) – the main bad guy was laughable and so bland like a badly drawn cartoon character.

        The plot wasn’t good either – a car mechanic versus Japanese Yakuza (I know that Jackie was healing from an injury during the filming of Thunderbolt and his double was trying to get things right – I think it was Chin Kar Lok who doubled for Jackie), alongside uninspiring car race full of Mitsubishi motors vehicles (like an advertisement), the fights were broken beyond repair – Sammo Hung made them in the fashion of quick cuts and close ups, which ruined the experience for me.

        I still think that this film is weak point in Jackie’s career (Rumble in the Bronx was slightly better) and I’m glad that you saw some film merits in Thunderbolt where I couldn’t find anything remotely entertaining.

  13. Tao de Ching Chong says:

    Senior Jackie Chan can kick ass better than anyone out there, with Sammo Hung the exception. I’ll watch slow Jackie over any North American “martial artist” anytime. JCVD? barf. And Battle Creek Brawl still is one of my favorites. Drunken Master 2 the best!
