City Hunter - Pretty wacky, I liked it though. It was over the top in scenes, like Kung Fu Hustle. The Chun-Li bit was disturbing!
The Accidental Spy - I saw the edited and dubbed version last year, I never understand why the US studios feel they have to butcher Asian films so much.
Dragons Forever - This was pretty fun, with Sammo and Yuen Biao teaming up with Jackie. Jackie starts off as an anti-hero womanizing lawyer working for the bad guys. At one point, the three Fortunes even fight each other. Benny Urquidez (Wheels on Meals) faces the stars once again, this time sporting a pretty messed up looking face, and eyeliner!
The Fearless Hyena - Decent, with a gimmicky fighting style at the end where Jackie uses 4 emotions.
Fearless Hyena Part II - So Jackie walked out early in production... That's okay, they'll make the movie anyway! Using disguised "Jackie" characters, lifting scenes from such films as Spiritual Kung Fu, and even stealing the fight scene from his own The Fearless Hyena, producer/director Lo Wei pieces together a film that would have best been left unfinished.
Police Story - The Police Story films are decent, with action and comedy, without being slapstick-y. Jackie has to protect a witness for a drug lord trial.
Kung Fu Girl - Jackie has a bit role in this early work, the star is Chang Pei-Pei (of Come Drink With Me.) In this one, Jackie plays a Japanese thug that gets beaten soundly, and then fades into the background.
Police Story 2 - The lawyer for the drug lord returns in this, as an ineffective threat against Jackie and his girlfriend. The real threat comes from some extortionists who are bombing various sites.
The Magnificent Bodyguards - A long time ago, in a galaxy far away...
Wait, what? Another Lo Wei effort, this time casting Jackie as a bodyguard who accompanies a woman and a sick man through bandit-infested mountains. More twists than a pretzel factory! They lifted entire chunks of the Star Wars soundtrack for this one. This was originally filmed in 3-D, so you might see the occasional spear being thrust at the screen. The 3-D version is pretty hard to come by, and from screenshots I've seen, doesn't look to be in very good shape. Plus, I think that version may be edited, I'm not sure.
All in the Family - The infamous "Jackie Chan Porno", although this is really just more of a standard sex comedy. It doesn't compare even to a softcore "Skinemax" show, rather, it's closer to an R-rated comedy. Not much in the way of action, except with an encounter between a rickshaw driver and a pedestrian that he bumped into.
Police Story 3: Supercop - Jackie and Michelle Yeoh go undercover to stop the biggest source of drugs in mainland China. This set the stage for Michelle's spinoff sequel: Supercop 2 (or Project S.) I think that is coming out on Dragon Dynasty, I'm not sure.
New Fist of Fury - The "official" sequel to Fist of Fury, with a returning actress and some of the same crew. I wonder if this one is all that popular in Japan...
Twin Dragons - Two Jackies for the price of one! I enjoy wacky films like this: The Parent Trap, Cheech & Chong's The Corsican Brothers, etc. Jackie is two brothers separated at birth, one grows up to be a concert pianist/conducter, the other is a street thug. This has lots of the standard "mistaken identity" gags, and has the girlfriends of each character falling for the opposite character. Of course, there is trouble, from a gang of toughs that "street" Jackie and his friend tangled with earlier.
Dragon Lord - This has Jackie goofing off instead of practicing/studying, and he is smitten with a local girl (as is his friend.) There aren't a lot of fights, but the final fight is a doozy! There are also some sports, like Hackysack Soccer or something, and a rugby-like game where 5-6 teams of 10-20 players each are trying to get a golden ball from atop a giant pyramid and return it to their home spot. Reading the IMDB reviews, it sounds like the US version was changed quite a bit from the original, so I would suggest people look for the original version.
