Shaolin (Hulu).

Chan brings wit as well as knowledge in his supporting turn alongside Andy Lau’s vicious military leader who loses it all to a stroke of genius before discovering redemption along with an order of monks.

Rush Hour.

Shanghai Noontime.

Unsure why people hate on this one, however I’m a follower of its “Heavy traffic meets the Old West” antics.

Shinjuku Event.

There’s some activity here, but it’s likewise a heavy drama as Chan plays a Chinese immigrant dealing with amazing chances.


Chan is great in this informal 3rd Authorities Tale film, but the wow aspect belongs equally with the exciting Michelle Yeoh as the duo provide a lot of epic and amusing beat downs.
