Would You Watch A Actionless Jackie Chan Movie?

by Michael Lauck on November 20, 2012 · 4 comments in Buddhist Blog,News & Updates

Media organizations around the world are repeating the story that Jackie Chan has announced his new film, Chinese Zodiac 2012, will be his last big action movie. This makes sense, as Jackie is approaching 60 years old and can not possibly keep up his style of stuntwork forever. While everyone runs the same story (more or less) repeating Jackie’s comments and covering his charitable efforts we are left wondering what this means for projects Jackie was touting during the early publicity for Chinese Zodiac 2012 this summer (such as Rush Hour 4 and Karate Kid 2). Does this mean that he is admitting that he will be minimizing the action in his Hollywood efforts? Will the world accept Jackie in comedy only or serious dramatic roles without death defying action? Leave your comments below and share your thoughts on this.

Are Rush Hour and Karate Kid great movies? Because those are Jackie Chan movies with toned down action… but they are also American made. I think he’ll still make good movies and be a star in China, but I’m afraid his international career will suffer.

Yet your comparisons with toned down action are some of his most profitable movies (and western films at that), so how will his international career suffer?

One problem…last BIG action movie=/= NO stunts, just less “death defying” for one. He could also take more “mentor” roles, older cop higher up, teacher etc. I have no worries he can still pull of GREAT movies even toned down.
