The trailer looks pretty good. Jackie is showing his age, but I still wouldn't pick a fight with him. As far as I know he still does his own stunts?

Just like Chuck Norris. As old as he is, I would not want to pick a fight with him or Jackie Chan. These guys will seriously fuck you up.

Hell he isn't that old, and the trailer looks good to go.

I am going to watch it.

I have major respect for Jackie...and his very considerable skills.

He's like 63 and broken most anything that can break in the human body and heal back up. It's crazy some of the stunts he's done.

If you're looking for a good way to kill an hour and a half, it's not Jackie Chan, but Kung Fu Zombie is on amazon prime video.
Campy as hell, but the monk is one of my all time favorite kung fu artists, anything he's in is going to entertain me.

Looks like youtube has it as well.

I always thought Chow Yun Fat was way underrated.

His last couple of movies, a lot of the stunt work was CGI.

They were okay movies, but I wasn't paying to see CGI. Chan's up in Evel Knievel territory for abusing his body; if he wants to retire and go directing, producing, or just sitting on the porch drinking beer, he's had a successful career. But if I'm paying to see a Jackie Chan movie, I'm paying to see Jackie Chan, even if he's not getting around so good any more. I'm not paying to see a really high quality cartoon.

I'm getting greyer, so an old Jackie Chan suits me.

OTOH, is no love here for the greatest actual actor in buisness? Sammo Huang deserves far better!

I've liked his movies that I've seen.

This movie has trailers on You Tube that date back to June through September.

Sammo Hung and JC are kung fu brothers... meaning they came from the same master. There's also a third brother Yuen Biao who didn't make it to the US. JC is the youngest of the 3 and he debuted in the US first then Sammo. Dragons Forever is one of my favorite movie with all three bros starring in it.

Jackie and Jet also star in an underrated, but nice, little movie called Forbidden Kingdom. Ignore the whiny American kid and enjoy a Kung Fu movie with Immortals and wenches with whip-hair and magic and such.

Jackie's latest netflix release is "ok"...not super great

Kung Fu Yoga.

the three IP Man movies with Donnie Yen are my new favorites. Wilson Yip is the director of the three... The fourth I think was a knock off...without DOnnie Yen or the original director.

Kung Fu Killer is really good... Donnie YEn (netflix)

"the good the bad and the weird" was decent... (netflix)

Journey to the West was good too...

Fuck Jackie Chan, that commie bastard! Yes, commie bastard, as in member of the Chinese Communist Party and member of one of its most prestigious committees:

Man we have a lot of mush for brains "useful idiots" around here.

"Oh he's my hero cause he does good Kung Fu stunts in movies".

Never mind that he's a commie scumbag.

You wonder why the leftists hold such sway in our country? Its because you support them.

As you can tell from the articles above the leftists in this country love him.

The video says it all.
