Jackie Chan Zooms in with New Trailer for ‘CHINESE ZODIAC’

kinopoisk.ru

Its a fitting coincidence that the day before last I finally discovered a film that many consider to be one of the best in Jackie Chan‘s wild career: Jackie Chan’s Who Am I?  Sunday morning I caught a bit of one of the extraordinary action sequence from the film while channel flipping which resulted in me recording the film in its entirety the next time it was on.  Growing up in the late 80′s and into the 90′s, I had discovered Jackie Chan and his unique blend of martial arts and comedy in films like First Strike, Operation Condor, and Rumble in the Bronx.  I was mesmerized by the stunts he was able to achieve and the speed and fluidity in which he performed his punches, kicks, and maneuvers.  Of course though there are always films of his that flew under my radar.  Discovering a gem like Jackie Chan’s Who Am I? almost sparked the child-like glee I had when I rented some of his films on VHS when I was younger.  So it’s a pleasant surprise to see that the actor hasn’t given up on performing death-defying stunts.  To be honest, Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) – his new film coming out later this year – flew completely under my radar even though it apparently received a positive response to footage shown at Comic-Con this year.  As witnessed in the trailer, Jackie Chan makes a return to form combining both humor and action in a way that only he does best.  The elongated sequence of Chan barreling down the hill apparently cost the equivalent of millions of US dollars to film and when you see the trailer you can understand why.  Impressive doesn’t even begin to describe it.  Chinese Zodiac sees Chan reprise his role as Asian Hawk (Armour of God, Operation Condor).  In this sequel, Hawk is on a mission to find twelve mystical bronze sculpture heads of animals in the Chinese zodiac.  Witness the new teaser below.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
