Hong Kong Got Too Small For Another Jackie Chan Movie
26 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At this point Hong Kong might be getting too small for a Jackie Chan movie. Small time mechanic doesn't do him any justice, and Hong Kong can't provide the right stars.

Lack of interesting settings also didn't help to put humor into his action, and the movie became like a rehash of Police Story 2.

Maybe only Jacke Chan didn't know how big he really was getting.

This was more like just another Hong Kong movie, and wasn't a real Jackie Chan movie. But he quickly changes pace with his following movies, before breaking big in Hollywood.

So take this movie as a transitional Jackie Chan. The movie proves to me that Jackie Chan really is a Super Star, and wouldn't fit into a regular movie star role.

Even then, it would be hard to envision another actor who can play the role he's played in this movie.
