Can two Jackie Chan admirers be objective while discussing his latest movie? Find out by listening to my interview with film critic Adam Hakari on the "Movie Addict Headquarters" radio show, now available on BlogTalkRadio as an archived segment.
Hakari, one of our fine ReelTalk Reviews critics, is a lifelong film fan, having written reviews for nine years and seen thousands of movies. He also writes reviews for a classic film website as well as for the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Student Voice newspaper. During the school year, he hosts "The Mad Movie Man," a weekly movie talk radio show.
With close to 100 films to his credit, Jackie Chan has become one of the world’s greatest action stars. His amazing career began as a student of music, dance and traditional martial arts at the Chinese Drama Academy when he was only six years old. Noted for his unique combination of martial arts and comedy, Chan insists on doing his own stunts, which causes difficulty for studios in terms of insurance coverage but also results in extraordinary action sequences. Amusing outtakes at the end of each movie illustrate some of Chan’s injuries while performing his stunts.
During this "Movie Addict Headquarters" show, Adam and I share our reactions concerning Jackie Chan films we enjoyed the most as well as how “Rush Hour 3” compares with his other film work.
