One of the greatest action stars who ever lived is retiring from action movies. He was quoted saying:
“This is my last action film,” he said. “I tell you, I’m not young any more. I’m really, really tired. And the world is too violent right now. It’s a dilemma -- I like action but I don’t like violence.”
I guess this day had to, he is after all 58 years old. But I always loved watching Jackie Chan martial art films when I was younger, like Super Cop, First Strike and Operation Condor amongst others. The stuff he did, no stunt double was completely engaging to watch, plus his films were some of the last that I remember to have a blooper reel playing during the closing credits.
He did say he wasn't retiring from acting, he still wants to movies just no genre action movies. But if there is one positive to come out of this, it's that there'll never be another horrendous Rush Hour movie.
So thank you Jackie Chan for all your awesome action movies and video games.
Did anybody ever watch Jackie Chan Adventures when they were younger like me?
