Jackie Chan's story is a real inspiration, ya'll. It just goes to show that if you put in the hard work and don't give up, you can achieve great things, no matter what life throws your way.

What's really cool is how Jackie Chan gives back to his community and supports all kinds of good causes. He's a real stand-up guy, and I reckon that's one reason why folks all over the world love him so much.

You betcha, Jackie Chan's work ethic is really somethin' else! I mean, the fact that he does all his own stunts in every movie is downright impressive and just goes to show how much he cares about his craft.I gotta say, I'm a big fan of Jackie Chan's flicks! The way he mixes humor and action together is just perfect, and Snake in the Eagle's Shadow? Now that was a game-changer for sure.It's cool to hear about Jackie Chan's early days in the film industry and how he got his foot in the door.

OP you forgot to mention that Jackie Chan is also a singer, so he is more than an actor and Martial Artist. He is way more talented, he is also a writer too.

@Sven, Wow he is a singer too? Anyone who can share some of his songs?

It's surprising to learn that Jackie Chan's father worked as a spy for the Dai Li! You really never know someone's history until you look into it.

Aside from his impressive skills in acting and martial arts, Jackie Chan also serves as a fantastic ambassador for Chinese culture. He's done so much to promote and raise awareness about Chinese traditions across the globe.


UGH, I hate Jackie Chan, He is not the nice guy you see on this movies or Interview. This man is Pro-Chinese Government that's why he is hated in Both Hong Kong which is his homeland and we hate him in Taiwan too. He also disowned his very own daughter because she is gay. He is a suck up to Mainland China and betray his homeland of Hong Kong.

Here is proof:

I do not support his ideologies and beliefs. He is an awful person and boycotted his movies for years.

Mingming, You should separate the artist from their political beliefs. His political beliefs does not define him as a person. I am a liberal democrat and some of my family are Republican and we never let our politics define our relationship. We all have freedom of speech and freedom to choose what to belief. Just because his politics doesn't align with yours it doesn't mean he is a bad person.


Did you miss the part when I said he disowned and Abandon his daughter because she is Gay? That alone is a proof he is a bad person. Do not reply because I will block you.

I understand that you feel strongly about Jackie Chan's political beliefs and actions towards his daughter. However, I think it's important to separate our personal feelings towards someone's actions from their work as an artist. Jackie Chan's movies have brought joy and entertainment to millions of people around the world, regardless of his political beliefs. To someone Asian American like me,I saw him as a childhood hero.


Creed, I appreciate your opinion, but I cannot separate Jackie Chan's personal beliefs and actions from his work as an artist. Disowning his own daughter because of her sexual orientation is not something that can be ignored or brushed aside. It's a reflection of his character as a person and it's important to hold people accountable for their actions, no matter how talented they are in their craft. Also on his belief my Country is a province of China. I do not want Taiwan to reunite with China. We already have our own culture, government and democracy. Chan is a traitor to the people of Hong Kong.

It's definitely a difficult issue to navigate. While I don't agree with Jackie Chan's actions towards his daughter, I still think it's important to acknowledge and appreciate his contributions to the entertainment industry. But ultimately, it's up to each individual to decide how they want to approach this issue and whether or not they want to support his work. He is still a legend that deserves respect.

I love how Jackie Chan's name reflects his journey and the different phases of his life. It's a testament to his resilience and adaptability.Jackie Chan's story is a great reminder that sometimes the path to success is not a straight line, and that setbacks and failures can often be the catalysts for even greater achievements.

Dudez, have you seen Jackie Chan's moves? They're absolutely insane! He's like a freakin' superhero with all the crazy stunts and risks he takes in his movies. It's no wonder he's such a legend in the industry.

What's even cooler is how his early years studying martial arts and acrobatics set him up for success in the film world. The guy's got a totally unique skill set that makes him stand out from the rest.

But what I really admire about Jackie Chan is his determination. He's faced so many challenges and obstacles in his life, but he never gave up on his dream of being a successful actor and martial artist. That's some serious dedication, bro.

Jackie Chan's flicks are the bomb! They've got this killer combo of action and comedy that always leaves me on the edge of my seat. And can we talk about how Snake in the Eagle's Shadow completely revolutionized the martial arts genre? Genius.

But what really blew my mind was discovering how Jackie Chan got his foot in the door of the film biz. Who knew he started off as a porn actor then as a stunt double for Bruce Lee? Talk about a crazy cool backstory.
