Jackie Chan is a big fan of silent movie stars Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton so a lot of his films have the same old style, physical comedy tones to them. I like Jackie, he choreographs some of the best fight scenes with some of the most unusual weapons ever. Watch The Big Brawl some time, he fights off a couple of sword wielding bad guys with a saw horse.
But he’s off his rocker here. Maybe he’s been away from doing business in China so long he’s forgotten what it’s like.
