The Battle Creek Brawl back to product details

great for chan fans.

ok, first off, this is an action comedy film. Jackie Chan is the star, but Mako has a substantial role as Chan's elder uncle who teaches him Kung Fu. I'll give you that the wardrobe dept. had some mishaps with the 80's clothing during a rollerderby that's supposed to take place in the 30's. All in all, though, if you like Chan for his action and his comedy, then you will not be disappointed. Also, Mad Props for showcasing the values of new immigrants being contrasted against the more established stock of America.

The text in the description says it all...

"The Big Brawl was Jackie Chan's first starring role in an American film, but Chan wouldn't break through in the United States until the 1996 U.S. release of Rumble in the Bronx."

Rumble in the Bronx was at least the fifth Chan movie I saw. It sucked. This movie is much worse.

It's Chan doing obvious one-take stunts (not his MO) with slow and stupid American stunt man.

Bad bad bad.

The only worse Chan movie that I have seen is "Fantasy Mission Force", and it's only bad if you watch it. If you fast forward both movies for the stunts, FMF is better.
