I think the last great Jackie Chan movie was Who Am I?
I like Who Am I better than Rush Hour. Not sorry i never was crazy about Rush Hour i honestly don't like Ratner very much compared to Stanley, at least i look at Stanley's flim's and get where he's coming from at times with his style of fliming. I hope JC never work's with Ratner ever again i'm tired of the Rush Hour movies there overated to me the first one was kind of boring with the lame jokes bad as a High Schooler attempting to do stand up Comedy on stage, no i don't all JC flims of recent are all good some are good.

I did like the Myth more than the the tuxedo, I liked Rob-B -Hoood. Don't care what you all say to me it was a good movie next to New Police Story. The Medallion wasn't my cup of tea sorry at all Gordan Chan shouldn't have never directed the flim and just left it in Sammo's hands from the start instead of the whole misdirection of the flim.

Overall i support JC and hope Armour of God 3 makes good on it's promise.

No more Rush Hour movies. "Let Ratner remake 80's classics and rape them.

I was watching this last night.... pretty good movie, man. Genius physical comedy during the scene with him and the girls at the hotel room.

Not sure how you can't like this, but you like Ong Bak?

But hey, some people like Scarface more than The Godfather... so...

You talking about the film with Aaron Kwok and Mark Dacascos? Because if so, I don't get the implication with Chan's films.

Stanley Tong directed China Strike Force as well.

I enjoyed The Shinjuku Incident despite it didn't have any Martial Arts action. Another shock i did Little Big Soldier abit more than The Karate Kid, not slaiming The Karate Kid or anything i just like them using that title since JC is only teaching Jaden Kung Fu. Other than that it was alright i don't have any hate for Jaden despite the kid has a long way to go interms of performing Martial Arts like an expert on Camara, i did enjoy Shaolin although i'm wondering whatever happened the talk of JC fighting with Andy Lau battle was it cut out or was never flimed due to timing???

Rush Hour 3 hmmm i don't hate it as much as other people do. I thought it was okay having Sanda-San and JC battling onscreen but the flim was a sign of enough is enough, i honestly can't see it cont like the Lethel Weapon flims.

Forbidden Kingdom i enjoyed due to the first pairing of JC and JL together. I wish they made more films together ashame though JL was the only co-star away from Sammo and Biao that was less anoying than Tucker oh yes i don't like Chris Tucker i find him very anoying to watch now and find overated.

Like most stinkers, they still will have 1 or 2 nice scenes in them... but overall I didn't care 1 bit about Armour of God 2. Maybe I've only seen the cut version though.

It was a USA videotape I bought ages ago for too much money. I felt it was missing good action and I didn't care for the acting, the story, or the mediocre (read: piss-poor) cast..

I love Ong-Bak, but I hardly watch it cause the only version I have is either a mediocre quality bootleg of the thai original cut with the cool music, or the UK version with the fucked up soundtrack.

Scarface, The Godfather... I prefer Goodfellas.

Read from a July 2010 post in Screen Power that THE LEGEND OF THE CHINESE ZODIAC will be Chan's final "big action" film. He will continue to act, but lessen on the fights and show more his acting side...well, he did say almost a decade ago he had about 5 years left...looks like he has reached his limit.

And guess what??? Jackie has officially begun production on CHINESE ZODIAC in Paris. Kwon Sang-Woo is on location as well.

Check out some on-set photos HERE

Well, if this is to be his swan song, I hope he makes it memorable with some truly great fight sequences and little or no wire-work. I don't care about him doing any crazy stunts for this. I just want to see him perform some amazing choreography. And a decent end fight, please!

As far as I'm concerned he stopped putting effort in his action-movies 16-17 years ago...
