Jackie Chan

Directed by Jackie Chan

Don’t even dare see this movie on any screen other than HD.

After just five minutes into the film we are introduced to a skating stunt by Jackie Chan, that was breath taking and the only advice I have for someone with a weak heart is,
“Skip the first 5 minutes of the film.”
Most people achieve marvelous fits in their young years and spend the rest of their adult lives trying to re-live the glory days (eg Jean Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger), but Jackie Chan is the opposite of that fact.

In 2012 Jackie Chan at age 58 released Armour of God 3, and it was named CZ12 which is a short for Chinese Zodiac, and the 12 represent the 12 bronze heads of animals in the Chinese zodiac. In this film Chan is credited as the writer, actor, director, producer, screenplay writer and cinematographer; all this with the marvelous stunts he did in the movie earned Chan two Guinness World Records for "Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie".

The movie has the same similar fill as our old and beloved Armour of Godwe are introduced to some old relics, and the Chinese Indiana Jones JC is sent after them, and in this flick, Jackie is grouped in a team of 4 as they go hunting this relics down.

In this flick JC is all gadget up just like James Bond, and there were some impressive camera angles that will thrill and excite you. The downside of most Jackie Chan movies is that most of the cast that star alongside him are just not good enough to be on the silver screen, here we see same, also the movie is quite long, although I was told the American version will be 20 minutes shorter which is welcoming.

One thing to look out for (in this film) after a long dialogue about going to search for the remainder of the relics, (which could have been summed up in just 10 minutes, but was like over 30 minutes long) we are taking to a scene where we get to see Jackie and his team take on pirates.
That was the high part of the movie because the scenes that include Jackie,and his team against the pirates were very funny, filled with thrill,and the action was intense plagued with nail biting moments. Another thing to look out for is that one of the pirates looked and dressed so much like Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Another sad thing about the movie is that you don’t get to see Jackie do his martial art fighting tricks till the end, but it was worth the wait.
Go see this movie.
