Wanna know all things about Jackie Chan?  Get his book "My Life in Action".  He and Samo Hung went to the same opera (yes, opera) school.  They used to go by the names Yuen Lo and Yuen Lung, respectively.  Once Jackie got into films being a senior stuntman, he took on the name Yuen Lung.  He became Jackie when he lived with his parents in Australia and did some work for a guy named Jack who called him Jackie.  Blah, i could keep going on and on... but, read the book.

Do we? Jackie used to do the stunts that Lee wasn't prepared to do. I'm not saying that Lee wasn't a legend but Jackies comedic appearance tends to detract from the fact that he was amazingly well trained and fitter than a stratovarious (wrong spelling :P ). Personally I find Jackies earlier stuff like Snake in Eagles Shadow and Drunken/Young Master more honest and enjoyable than Bruce.


Also the new movie is called The Medallion, there was some stupid old tv show called highbinder so they switched the name.

Fantasy Mission Force sucks.  It's really surreal, mo lei tau comedy, like a Stephen Chow movie, but not as funny, and really disturbing visually.  I really don't like it, and I'm a big Jackie Chan fan and (if possible) a bigger Brigitte Lin fan.

I have no idea when Highbinders is being released anywhere in the world.  I really should check up on that.

I never liked Jet Li, not sure why something about him never clicked with me. I like Jakie and Sammo, maybe I like my action movies more comedaic.

When I see Zhang Ziyi fall backwards onto a bed of real burning coals and have to crab-scuttle her way off, then I'll consider her on a par with Jackie.

Yes, he did go to an opera school where he was trained in many different things.  Are you that misinformed?  I'm not trying to get in a worthless debate with you, but the place where he went was an opera school called China Drama Academy... the next page after that starts a new chapter called "A Day in the Opera".  He did chinese opera while he was still in school until there was really no more business to be had and moved on to motion picture films as a lowly no-name stuntman.  Didn't go to opera school.... pffft.

i was saying the school he went to wasnt exclusively opera which is the impression you gave i am aware that he studied opera as at the end of some of his movies he sings to the credit i was just trying to say he learnt other arts as well as opera no deabte we agree you just obviously didnt read my post properly

Im with you DeucePM.....jackie has had practically every bone in his body broken through stunt work.....he is a legend

i mean he did a boat chase scene in 'rumble in the bronx' with a broken leg....what a guy...he had a plaster cast on so they painted a shoe on his cast.

You're saying I obviously didn't read your post correctly, which I really find not to be true.  I never stated that it was exclusively just an opera school.  Although now I will say that it merely was exclusively an opera school as his master trained his students and him to be the best there is at Chinese Opera.  All their training and hard work was for the chance to be on the stage singing and acting.  After all that training, it has allowed them to utilize the skills neccessary to try to get somewhere in the movie industry.  So it was exclusively an opera school with the intent of teaching Chinese Opera.  Besides the fact that somehow I didn't read your post correctly, when your post is INCORRECT, how about you read the book?

Interesting fact, the stunt that nearly killed him was one that was rather simple.  While shooting Armour of God, he fell off a tree doing a routine stunt and landed his head on some rocks that caused his head to be punctured.  Yup, he's got a hole in his head, but it's covered with a plastic plug.  This man took alot of pain to get to where he is and he deserves a ton of respect.

Chinese opera, if you've never seen it, isn't like western opera.  Singing is important, but most of it is synchronized acrobatics and very stylized and very dramatic kung fu.  In order to study Chinese opera, you are trained in kung fu from a very young age in order to be able to do the physically demanding work of performing.  this is why a lot of the early kung fu movie stars were operatically trained, not just Jackie and the seven little fortunes.  It's a natural progression.  So stop arguing, you're both right, more or less. 
I also agree that what sets Jackie apart from everyone else who's doing kung fu movies is his willingness to take abuse for his art.

Oh, crap, The Medallion and Highbinders are the same film?  I was looking forward to Highbinders, but the Medallion looks like shite.

thamks for clearing that up canned
@Prowla rx7 the movie that nearly killed him? is that the one filmed in yugoslavia (i think) where he did finish filming after the injury but could only be filmed from one side because of the bandages and then required a long recovery peruiod???

Yeah, which is ironic, because at the end of this movie he jumps off a mountain and lands on a moving hot air balloon, and is not injured.  But going up a tree nearly killed him.  Wasn't there a famous French stuntman who died when he slipped on an orange peel?

Edit: just saw an ad for the Medallion on TV.  Meh.
