Everybody likes Jackie Chan don’t they? We do. So it’s pretty much a given that we’ll watch a Jackie Chan film whenever one comes out (which is quite often) – no matter how shit they look (which nowadays, they often do). It’s a sad fact that most of the films Jackie has made in America have been for kids and have been a bit rubbish (apart from Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Shanghai Noon, Shanghai Knights, Around The World In 80 Days, The Forbidden Kingdom and The Karate Kid). His best work is always in his Hong Kong movies – but don’t let that stop you from watching his American stuff because he’s still always good in whatever film he’s in.
On today is The Medallion, which is very average, but Jackie Chan is in it so you should watch it. Also Lee Evans is in it (although he’s a bit annoying) and Claire Forlani is in it (and she is fit) and also Scott Adkins is in it (and he is very good at kicking people), so just watch it okay? It’s about a medallion or shit, we can’t remember really, but we do remember that Jackie Chan fights loads of people in it, and it was made at a time where Hollywood had finally come round to letting Jackie do the fighting his way, so at least there’s that.
Anyway, we’re off to watch Drunken Master II, see ya!
It’s on SyFy at 5pm.
