  • Jackie Chan retiring from Action films

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/f...on-movies.html

    Sad that this day has finally come, still hes 58 years old and has been doing so much amazing shit for over 30 years now.
    Glad hes got 1 last film with his old style coming out.

    Even though I hated the second two Rush hour films...I still kind of wish he could go on doing these films forever.

      Here's to Jackie Chan, the man who had the balls to say "No. I won't be Bruce Lee" in a day when every action movie involving Chinese martial arts demanded a Bruce Lee clone. Kudos to you, sir.

        Well, there is a time for everything.

        BTW, here's Jackie on one of Lee's films:

        Stuff to remember: Avoid forums if you're having a bad day.

          Bruce Lee almost broke Jackie Chan's ribs in that movie by accident. What was supposed to happen was Lee kicked and missed Chan's chest by an inch and Chan was supposed to "fly" backwards. But what really happened was Jackie Chan was standing just an inch too close and Lee ended up kicking him across the room into some equipment. XD Bruce Lee supposedly shit himself (Not literally of course) and almost refused to film the rest of the day because he almost killed Chan. xD

            Sad thing is we now have to wonder if there is anyone out there who is willing to follow in Jackies footsteps.

              This guy. His fighting style is different than Jackie's but he's the best next thing.

                    You guys misread what he meant. His Facebook clarifies that he's still doing action movies, just that he's gonna tone down the over-the-top stunts he does.

                      "Hello All my friends and fans,

                      Yesterday in my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac I said that this movie was my last big action movie.

                      Today I was shocked when I woke up to read all the news coverage that I was retiring from doing Action movies.

                      I just want to let everyone know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.

                      I will continue to do international action movies.

                      And I will keep improving my English :-)

                      I love all of you!"

                      Jackie

                        Another mystery solved, gang. They would have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for us meddling kids.
