Police Story & Police Story 2

All the world loves Jackie Chan, whose cinematic action pictures bridge the gap between silent-era virtuosity and slick modernity. As light comedy entertainment these first two Police Story smash ‘n’ bash epics of eye-popping jeopardy are suitable as ‘family entertainment’ as well. Jackie is a marvelous hero, while Maggie Cheung is an old fashioned girl who doesn’t mind being threatened, kidnapped and occasionally having her scalp split open. You will believe that men can tumble from high roosts onto concrete, and smash through acres of glass countertops without receiving a scratch necessarily going straight to emergency surgery. Criterion has created beautiful new masters, with original soundtracks and extras to make every foolish Jackie Chan fan try some ridiculously dangerous stunt for themselves!

Raymond Chow Dies: Iconic Hong Kong Producer Launched Bruce Lee & Jackie Chan
Raymond Chow, the Hong Kong producer who brought Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan to the masses as producer of such films as Enter the Dragon, The Chinese Connection, Police Story, Rumble in the Bronx and The Cannonball Run, died today. He was 91.

Chow co-founded Golden Harvest in 1970 and was among the first to bring Hong Kong movies to America and other territories outside Asia. He originally worked as a publicist for Shaw Brothers Studios before making the jump to production in the company led by Run Run Shaw that popularized kung fu movies.

After Chow spotted Lee on local Hk television, Golden Harvest inked the martial arts master to a three-film deal — one of which was the seminal kung fu actioner Enter the Dragon. The film was the first Hong Kong movie co-produced with a Hollywood studio (Warner Bros.) and it became a staggering success. With a budget reportedly under

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.

If you’re young enough not to remember it directly, you probably have no idea exactly how massive Jackie Chan was in the late 1990s. The action star had been famous in Hong Kong for decades but struggled to break out beyond that when suddenly, a hastily put-together dub by Miramax of Chan’s “Rumble In The Bronx” exploded unexpectedly at the box office. It led to a number of similar hits as well as the absolutely enormous “Rush Hour” series, made in the U.S.

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the bone-crunching “Atomic Blonde,” what is the greatest movie fight scene?

Read More‘Atomic Blonde’: How They Turned One Amazing Action Scene Into a Seven-Minute Long Take Erin Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush

I’ve got a soft spot for wuxia so the “best fight scene” immediately evokes Zhang Yimou in my mind. I could list every fight in “Hero,” sequences so spellbindingly beautiful and graceful you forget you’re watching violence. The bamboo forest battle from “House of Flying Daggers” is another all-timer, a mesmerizing fight that almost entirely takes place in the air. And the bone-crunching, table-smashing

Review: Kung Fu Yoga (2017)

A Chinese archaeologist Professor Jack (Jackie Chan) teams up with a beautiful Indian Professor Ashmita (Disha Patani) and her assistant Kyra (Amyra Dastur) to find a lost Magadha treasure. From the freezing Tibetan ice caves, to the scorching beaches of Dubai, they find themselves travelling around the world to locate all the pieces required to unlock the secrets of the treasure. Unfortunately, they are not alone in their search as the descendant of a rebel leader Randall (Sonu Sood) also seeks the treasure and will do anything he can to make sure he gets it.

Kung Fu Yoga is a cultural collaboration between China and India, with both the cast and cultural philosophies incorporated into the film. This is not unusual for Chan who has featured Kung Fu and Buddhist philosophies in his past films. In Kung Fu Yoga he even manages to incorporate this into his fighting, talking through

Well, skills like hanging from a helicopter, holding to our composure even the enemy tries to demean you and taking violent adventures and escapades head on are a few skills only action movies can teach us. From the likes of Stallone, Lundgren, James Bond to Seagal and Schwarzenegger, these pantheon of great action stars can teach us many great things about life. They are:

Exclusive interview with actor Eric Jacobus

david j. moore chats with actor Eric Jacobus

The world has yet to learn the name Eric Jacobus. Ladies and gentlemen, hear the name and speak it because he’s here, and he’s about to break through.

Movie Review: Kung Fu Yoga is even sillier than its title

Kung Fu Yoga, which casts the sixtysomething Jackie Chan as a mild-mannered archeologist named (wait for it) Jack Chan, is an exercise in quantity over quality: an attempted return to the star’s Hong Kong action-slapstick roots, randomly assembled from pieces of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Pink Panther-era caper comedies, and the little-loved mid-2000s Chan vehicle The Myth (for which it serves as a bizarre quasi-remake), with a Lord Of The Rings fantasy battle sequence, a Fast And Furious-type luxury car chase, a Bollywood dance number, and not one, not two, but four different scenes involving CGI animals thrown in for the hell of it. The non-stop cycling of locations, crowd-pleaser modes, and groan-inducing gags makes for some watchable silliness. But Chan, who reunites here with his Police Story 3: Supercop and Rumble In The Bronx director Stanley Tong (who also helmed The Myth), is no longer

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.
