Actually the very last thing I would ever expect Jackie Chan to say would be "So, Rush Hour 4?"

Hardly the last thing I would expect him to say.

He seems like a legit nice guy and I do picture him going all fanboy over Bruce Lee.

/Police Story and Enter the Dragon are among the greatest action movies ever filmed.

Only if followed by 'Like he did by the lake on Naboo'

But it'd be worth hearing him try to say that.

No-one in HK gives a shiat what Jackie says these days. A bit of a hated figure, actually.

You have to wonder if the two of them ever had any sparing sessions with each other. Their styles are very different, I think it would have been a sight to see.

Possibly even better, Bruce Lee and Jet Li.

He reportedly hated working with Brett Ratner. Those movies were paycheck jobs for him.

Awesome.  I did not know that that was Jackie Chan in that scene.  I remember many years ago, watching the sparring scene at the monastery, and some tiny corner of my brain said, "Hang on... that's not Sammo Hung, is it?"

Now that movie is even more awesome.

It sorta began with him having an affair and had an illegitimate daughter, which was a whole scandal that just goes downhill from there.  And then he stands on his moral high horse lecturing people "blah blah blah" and people don't buy his crap because of the whole infidelity thing.  He is also very pro-China, people in HK don't like that.  Namely, I think he twitted something along the line that people in HK are too free or some nonsense like that.
They don't like Jackie Chan going all "I am the ambassador of HK" thing through all these negativities.

TLDR version: Basically he is a Chinese version of Chuck Norris, sorta.  Great action star talking silly shiat.

Calling the USA the most corrupt country in the world didn't help, and tweeting about the deaths of 8 HK citizens made folks mad.

Been going on for a few years now. He keeps making statements disparaging the locals and basically sucking China's cock as he does so.
He's an appointed official for some branch of the mainland government or something and thinks the uppity HK locals should not do silly things like protesting or say critical things towards China.

The West sees Jackie as some adorable buffoon - that's the image he projects extremely well - but he's a bit of a coont in real-life.

I give Jackie a big hand.
I do stage fighting and have studied Martial Arts all my life.
Bruce Lee was the schizznizzle.
Round-eyed actors, not so much.

Like that wimp with the scruffy red beard, and that fat lady in a dress.
Chan is a lot like Lee.

Jet Li and Jackie Chan are theatrically trained "fighters", more akin to a highly skilled dancer. Bruce Lee was an actual fighter.

Agreed.

I just learn to live with seeing him as two person.

Jackie Chan the action star I have high respect for.  You can see from some of those bloopers he was during the credits and he was pretty much playing with fire doing all his own stunts.

Jackie Chan the "philosopher" or "ambassador", not so much.  Zone out his BS and you will do fine.  Just because you are an awesome action star doesn't mean you are morality leader Pope Jackie Chan the First.

The Chinese version of a dog turd?
Doubt it.
I don't think I could take Chan in an impromptu sparring match.
I think Chan could hand me my ass.

Between Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, only Bruce Lee was trained for fighting at a competition level. Jackie Chan's martial arts was originally from his training as a Chinese opera performer and was never trained as a competitive fighter. Jet Li was a world class Wushu martial artist, but Wushu is more stylistic and not really as useful in competitive fighting.
 
2013-06-17 03:53:41 PM
Just saw a live Q&A with Jackie before a screening of Drunken Master 2.  He was great, very animated and charming and funny.  He had a good story about the stunt in Supercop when he had to run off a rooftop and catch a rope ladder dangling from a helicopter.
 
2013-06-17 03:55:11 PM
Thanks. I heard about the pro-China stuff and I thought, well, he's from there. What would I expect? The rest of the stuff just adds up I guess.
Love his movies.
Never really listen to any "actor" when it comes to politics so I guess I put that crap on the same level as (your choice) Baldwin telling me how to vote.

Gonna sound pedantic, but Lee actually trained for streetfighting/ self-defence - actual, literal no-holds-barred fighting - and didn't think competition for points and with judges realistic. One of Lee's favourite techniques was the finger jab to the eyes.

It's a good story, but Gene Wilder told the best story I've heard today:

"I got my first Broadway show and I had a funny part. And [my co-star] Anne Bancroft said, 'Would you like to meet my boyfriend, Mel Brooks?' And I said, 'Oh, I'd like that very much,'" Wilder recalled. "He was in the dressing room, and I walked in and there was Mel. He was wearing this beautiful merchant marine pea jacket, and I said 'Hello, Mr. Brooks. You look so handsome in that pea jacket.' He said, 'Yeah, they used to call them urine jackets but they didn't sell!'"
 
2013-06-17 04:18:11 PM
The last thing I'd ever expect Jackie Chan to say is "I never did any of my own stunts, that was just a bunch of marketing BS. All the dangerous stuff in my movies was actually done by my extremely talented stunt doubles, Jean Claude Van Damme, Vanilla Ice, and Keanu Reeves. Truly they are the greatest martial artists who have ever lived."

To be fair, when they are actually running (or holding office) I have to listen to what they are saying.
When they are promoting their rom-com or action movie, not so much.

Bruce would have destroyed both of them. Wushu looks good in movies. But it's not exactly practicle fighting.
Especially if we are talking about empty handed fighting.

Many an hour wasted on Tekken 2. Lei>Law in that game personally. Though, to be fair, Law had one of the best "throws" even though it's not really a throw.
