International box office champion Jackie Chan cranks up the adrenalin for the no-holds-barred stunt-fest Dragon Lord, the movie that inspired the Stephen Chow smash hit Shaolin Soccer. Featuring an explosive, jaw-dropping 20 minute fight finale with Hapkido Grandmaster Wong In-sik, Dragon Lord showcases some of the best stunt action of Jackie’s celebrated career, and also sets a new Guiness world record for the highest number of ‘takes’ (2900) required for a single motion picture sequence during the infamously brutal pyramid fight.

This is more one for the discerning Jackie fan. Whilst there are some very impressive sequences, some may find this film a little too light on what we know and love Jackie Chan for.
Dragon Lord was originally intended as a sequel to Young Master, its title being Young Master In Love. As such, it is essentially a love story. But problems with rival film studios trying to claim ownership of both the film and Jackie led to too many continuity errors and thus meant the name had to be changed. These problems were not without their effects on the film either. Sometimes you can't help but feel some parts were rushed, and some glaring continuity errors, as well as undeveloped characters, threaten to ruin the film. Having said this, Dragon Lord, for Jackie fans, is a worthwhile purchase. There are still classic Chan comedy elements to enjoy, and some action sequences are awesome. This film holds a Guinness World Record for the most takes for one scene. This particular scene is a cross between football and badminton (!), and for me, was worth the purchase alone. If you see it, you'll see why so many takes had to be used. Some of today's over-paid idiots who kick balls around couldn't even dream about some of the things on show here. Jackie also does a short sword routine which shows him more than a match for a young Jet Li, and the end fight against Wang Inn Sik (Young Master) is very entertaining.
Those who simply want to watch vintage start-to-finish kung fu from the king of Hong Kong cinema should go for Wheels on Meals, Young Master, Dragons Forever or Drunken Master. For a mix of action AND fighting, the Police Story trilogy, Project A or Armour of God would blow away most Hollywood efforts, and are worth more than a look.
If you've seen any of the above movies, you'll be able to appreciate this a lot more. However, if your Chan experience is limited to his more recent outings, don't start your journey of discovery here, because you'll be disappointed.

This was the third film Jackie directed. It's quite unconventional for a kung fu film, which was probably why it wasn't very popular on it's release, but I think it's an amazing piece of cinema. Jackie was trained in gymnastics and acrobatics and not just in martial arts and in this film he gets to display some of these amazing skills. I think audiences expected a jam-packed kung fu fest like his other movies but even Jackie himself tires of that sort of thing and he likes to present different types of action sequences. The shuttlecock / football sequence for instance is absolutely incredible, how on earth did he choreograph that? It truly shows what a master craftsman Jackie really is. No Jackie Chan collection would be complete without this film. Buy it now! But buy the widescreen subtitled version.

Jackie plays a young, rich layabout who's life is routine until he and his cousin, Yeun Biao, start to pursue a girl. Through conincidences they stumble onto a plot to steal Chinese national treasures by bandits, and fight to stop them.
This is the film that was made famous by Jackie re-shooting one scene (about 5 seconds worth) over a thousand times, taking 3 days. Blink and you'll miss it! Despite the amazing scenes of 'shuttlecock football', this film is a dissapointment compared to some of the other period pieces Jackie and Yeun have starred in. The fight scenes aren't as impressive or as frequent as would be expected from a Jackie Chan film and the plot isn't very clear (although the dubbing is a big problem).
