The New Jackie Chan Movie Looks Incredible

I really don't remember the last time I was excited for a Jackie Chan movie. Maybe 1996? It was sometime during the 20th century, that's for sure. This movie, however, has my attention.

Out this December in China, this is a reboot of Chan's Police Story flicks, which already got a reboot. The title of this latest one is Police Story (clever). Unlike the previous films, this one is not set in Hong Kong, but rather, it takes place in mainland China. As you watch it, remember Jackie Chan is 59 years old. Fifty-nine!

    After what he's said about a certain country, I won't be supporting him any more, even though I was a fan of his previously.

    “Even saying this, I think it is best natural disasters befall a certain country. Like giant earthquakes and tsunami.” - Jackie Chan

      ...“After the big disaster, you see the whole world, everybody, flying in to help the country, which makes me happy.”

      Maybe you should put the quote in context so you don't ruin his name with slander as what you think he said as it is NOT true.
      Maybe you should get the context right for yourself so you can see that you have no reason to now dislike someone you used to like.

        Not only that, but we all know that English is not one of Chan's strong points. So what he said, and what he meant might've been two slightly different things.

        Edit: After clicking the link and reading the story, my theory is confirmed.

      I'll admit, I was wrong, that's what I get for not googling something after reading it elsewhere. Though still, wanting people to suffer so that others will help is pushing things a little. I will also point out that the quote my source referenced had "a certain country", unlike;

      "I should not say this, but sometimes I really like to see a country having a disaster, or a big tsunami, or a big earthquake,"

      So there's a fair chance that my source is wrong, as inquisitr is a more reliable source. The quote from mine made it look like he was specifically targeting Japan, which is what 2ch ended up believing as well.

      Jackie Chan was one of the key initiators and headline celebrities behind an event held in Hong Kong in April 2011 called "Artistes 311 Love Beyond Borders", 3 weeks after the Japan tsunami and whose sole purpose was to raise funds to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. The event raised approx HK$ 18 million within 3 hours (approx 2.31 million USD). Links below:

      (This link seems to suggest a greater amount) http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/jackie-chan-raises-33-million-174410

      Towards this event, Jackie is quoted as saying: This is a concept of the Global Village. It doesn't matter if it's a South Asia Disaster, an earthquake in Taiwan, we are in Asia, we need to do something for our neighbour countries and friends.

      In reference to the interview where he seems to suggest 'liking' countries to be hit by tsunamis and earthquakes, here is a bit more of his quote:

      "I should not say this, but sometimes I really like to see a country having a disaster, or a big tsunami, or a big earthquake,"
      "After the big disaster, you see the whole world, everybody, flying in to help the country, which makes me happy."
      "No tsunami, no earthquake, everybody [with] nothing to do. Then politics comes in and you fight me. I fight ... I don't like to see such things,"

      As mentioned by someone else, english is not Jackie's first language and he still struggles. What I believe he is really trying to say is that he likes seeing people join together and overcome differences and disagreements to help victims of another country, and it is a shame that without such natural disasters, there seems to be less co operation.

      I hope this helps provide a bit of context to his comment, and put him in a different light. I don't believe he wants anyone to be hurt, but what he does like is when people join together and help out when something unavoidable like this occurs.

    Chinese production, too dramatic, unoriginal (another Police Story, really?). Doesn't look exciting to me, just makes me miss the old stuff.

    It certainly looks good. I love the Police Story films and I actually enjoyed the previous reboot (New Police Story, for those who don't know). Worth a look, definitely.

    The trailer in a nut shell.

    Scheech crash. Blam. "Blah blah blah". Swoosh swoosh biff. Swoosh smash. Pow. "Blah blah blah". Bam pow swoosh crash. Click click, bang. Beep beep BOOM! Hut hut hut hut hut hut. Click click. Blam blam blam blam blam blam. Swoosh pow. Blam blam. Whoosh pow. Swish whoosh pow "Ugh". Pow. Pow pow pow pow. "Ugh!" Blam! Vroom vroom screech blam crash smash. "Blah blah blah BLAH!" Blam! Fizzle sparkle. Bam. Fizzle sparkle. Bam. Fizzle sparkle. Bam. Click click. Clang crash. Clang. Bam! Crash.

    But seriously. Ive always been a fan of Jacky Chan, but I got real tired of his amazing choreographed fight scenes turning slapstick. I know thats his style, but Im hoping this new movie will portray his fight scenes in a serious tone.

      It definitely looks like it has a more serious tone, here's hoping.

That's from one of the new Hollywood movies isn't it?

        Yeah, It's from the remake of the old 1960's Batman TV series.

    I hope they bring it out here, I love Jackie Chan's movies

    I thought Jackie Chan doesn't use guns to kill people?

    Love Jackie Chan and the Police Story movies. I'll be looking forward to this one.

    Looks more like the trailer for a Donnie Yen film than a Jackie film.

    There's not really anything shown here to get me excited. No choreography is shown, no more than 1 movement per shot is shown, and almost nothing of the story. It might be OK, but after the films he has made in the last decade or so I'll need a lot more than this teaser to convince me.

    Looks like a a "Dark & Gritty" reboot. What I loved about the other Police Story movies was the camp element. It was good stuntwork, Jackie Chan was obviously having fun and it never took itself too seriously.

    The young guy at 1 minute reminds me of a chinese Aaron Paul. Anyone else?

    Does he still do all of his own stunts at 59?

    Jackie Chan is my shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!
