Jackie Chan has become a legend in the world of martial arts. He essentially created his own patented style of fighting using wild stunts and maneuvers as well as environments and props to his advantage, helping him swiftly defeat his enemies, no matter how many there are.

Legend of the Drunken Master has some of the best stunts and fight scenes in all of cinema. This is not only one of Jackie Chan’s best movies, it is one of the best kung-fu movies ever made.

There’s a lot to appreciate in the original Police Story (1985). As an action movie it has some really great scenes (in particular the shopping mall fight scene) and while it may not be the best Hong Kong action movie ever made, it definitely did set a standard and was recognized across the globe as an action staple.
PG-13 | 106 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

Director: Woo-Ping Yuen | Stars: Jackie Chan, Siu Tin Yuen, Jang-Lee Hwang, Dean Shek
Drunken Master is a great example of classic 1970’s kung fu cinema. Usually when you think about 70’s kung fu movies, you think about the Shaw Brothers. While this isn’t another Shaw production, it is directed by master martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo Ping.
93 min | Action, Comedy, Romance
Three successful Hong Kong lawyers are hired by a chemical company of questionable ethics and must eventually make a difficult decision when their employer’s motives become clear.
Directors: Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, Corey Yuen | Stars: Jackie Chan, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, Biao Yuen, Pauline Yeung
There’s just something different about seeing Jackie fight in a black suit and tie opposed to his later acid washed jeans and white t-shirt look. The fight scene on the yacht is absolutely unbelievable and some of Jackie’s best stuff ever.

A surprisingly fantastic entry very late in Chan’s career, “The Foreigner” plays like Taken but with the emphasis of a thriller.
108 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

Director: Sammo Kam-Bo Hung | Stars: Jackie Chan, Biao Yuen, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, Benny Urquidez
There are some good fight scenes in this one but it’s really not overrun with action like some of his other flicks. The comedic play between Yuen and Chan is pretty great, you can tell they had fun making this movie together.
12 | 104 min | Action, Comedy, Crime
A young man visiting and helping his uncle in New York City finds himself forced to fight a street gang and the mob with his martial art skills.

When Rumble was filmed Jackie was already 40 years old, but that didn’t stop him from pulling out some of the greatest stunts and fight scenes of his career. The plot may not be profound but when Jackie Chan’s concerned, it usually doesn’t need to be.

Even at 50 years old Jackie is still bringing his physical style of stunts and action. There are some very intense moments in the film and they do not hold back on the action. If you like Jackie Chan and any of the previous installments in the Police Story franchise, I do not think you will be disappointed.
