Not since the great Bruce Lee has a Chinese martial artist taken Hollywood by storm. Leaping out of dire poverty and obscurity, Jackie Chan has become the sensational international superstar of mayhem and merriment! This presentation of Chan's career covers his work with the legendary Bruce Lee, his struggle against typecasting in the Bruce Lee mold, and the resounding success of his breakthrough movies mixing amazing acrobatic artistry with brilliant comic ability.
The film creates a perfect balance between action and depth of basic needs, in the midst of an infertile atmosphere.
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
this is a good documentary about jackie chan, it has a lot of interviews from famous people, and people close to him, it also has loads of footage from his movies. it isn't as good or as packed with info as 'my story', but for people new to chan this is probably a good watch, and its the best place to start. the DVD has some cool extras too, including some rare trailers, rush hour scripts, and lots of chan info, if you can pick it up cheap, i certainly would. there is some decent behind the scenes footage in this as well, its a little short at an hour long, but it gets enough info in there. its well made and entertaining, and the half an hour chan interview on the extras is a joy to watch, i recommend
