Re: HK-Movie: 我是誰 ([Jackie Chan's] Who Am I?)


(ccwf, do you have any comments on this movie? )

Jackie Chan. What an interesting person! I‛ve never been into action movies so never took notice of him, other than knowing who he is. Then I saw him on a late night team competition reality show a few months back (physical stuff, all males, no subtitles), on either LA-18 or KXLA.

The regulars on that show totally crack me up and when Jackie Chan was the guest, the teams were challenged to perform basic stunts from Jackie‛s repertoire, flying on wires, etc. (Jackie himself did not participate; he brought some of his stuntmen, or would act as a coach in helping the participants try to get through the exercises.) His presence as an individual was fascinating.

Then I recently saw him for the first time in a movie (Shanghai Noon, with Owen Wilson). While I enjoyed this movie, I found myself wanting to see him play the lead in a straight, dramatic role.

Some of my favorite Jackie Chan quotes:

"I'd rather be a king in Asia than go to America and be a small potato."

" A fight should flow like a choreographed dance routine, but more importantly, the fight must 'play well' without sound effects."

"Don't try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie....
Study computers instead." emoticon

If you are a Jackie Chan fan, liking action movies with some humor, then this is a decent movie (but not great). It's certainly better than most of his recent efforts. And you get to hear Jackie sing at the end!

For viewers new to Jackie Chan and wanting more drama, I recommend starting with xml:lang zh-HK 警察故事 (Police Story). Police Story has a decent story with great stunts.

If your interest is primarily in martial arts and stunts, then see xml:lang zh-HK 醉拳II (The Legend of Drunken Master) for some of the very best that has ever been made. See how impressed Roger Ebert was in his review.

The final slide down the side of the building was especially impressive, which is why I have so many screencaps of that sequence.

Jackie, Jackie, Jackie. He is an industry. He is probably the most recognizable face in the WORLD! I would agree for action Drunken Master II is a classic. And it's very funny. And it also stars Anita Mui! (I miss her!) Who Am I? is good, but I think, of these recent films, I prefer First Strike. Of his most recent, I really liked Shanghai Noon. And all of the Police Story's are good. Jackie Chan was my first introduction to asian film. He has an autobiography out titled Who Am I? It's a quick read and is interesting to see where he came from and what he did to get where he is. I'm sure there are many untold stories! He's known for being quite the partier.

It's no coincidence that we have multiple Anita Mui films amongst the few movie topics here in this area of the board. I highly recommend her historical comedy xml:lang zh-HK 鍾無艷 (Wu Yen) and also enjoyed xml:lang zh-HK 給爸爸的信 (Jet Li's The Enforcer).

Maybe we should start a thread for this multi-talented lady. As well as the films you mentioned, I loved her in Rouge with Leslie Cheung and The Heroic Trio with Maggie and Michelle.

Image Oops. I forgot we have a tiny Heroic Trio topic, too.
