Great actor Jackie Chan’s Hollywood movies to watch

His charm ranges from Asian countries to the Hollywood

Among the few globally known actors of the time, there is nothing that touches the fame and love for Jackie Chan. This Hong Kong actor, director, martial artist, and stuntman is known for his slapstick acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, and hilariously innovative stunts, which are his USB and performs himself. This versatile veteran actor and martial artist has been acting since the 1960s and has acted in more than 150 films. While Chan has done numerous Hong Kong movies, he has done equally impeccable Hollywood projects that are worth the watch. Here is a list of a few of Jackie Chan’s Hollywood movies that you should watch.

The Karate Kid

One of the best and epic movies of Jackie Chan you could ever watch. This 2010 wuxia martial arts drama film by director HaraldZwart stars Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan as the main protagonist. The story of the film revolves around a 12-year-old boy called Dre Parker, played by Jaden Smith, who is from Detroit, Michigan in the US and moves to Beijing, China, with his mother, played by Taraji P. Henson. As a young kid Parker wanders around the neighbourhood, he encounters the art of karate and wants to master it. On his adventure, he stumbles upon Mr Han, played by Jackie Chan, who takes his own sweet time to get acquainted with Parker but teaches him every bit of Mr Han’s tricks.

The Foreigner

This 2017 action thriller film is by director Martin Campbell which is based on the 1992 novel The Chinaman by author Stephen Leather. The film is an American-British-Chinese co-production and stars Pierce Brosnan, Michael McElhatton, Liu Tao, and Charlie Murphy, besides Jackie Chan.  The story of the film follows a British-Nung Chinese man who is seeking revenge for the death of his daughter killed in a terrorist bombing. Chan portrays the role of Ngoc Minh Quan, a Nung Chinese who has a background of being a former Vietnam War special forces operative turned London restaurateur.

Shanghai Noon

This 2000 martial arts Western comedy film starring Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, and Lucy Liu was a commercial success for its comedy action and romance. The narration set in in the 19th-century backdrop of Nevada and other parts of the American West, combined with kung fu action, did great justice to the film’s execution. Chan, as an Imperial Guard, comes to save a kidnapped princess.

A few other of his films are Project A, Kung Fu Yoga, Dragon Blade, Drunken Master, Dragons Forever, and Rush Hour.
