Jackie Chan hasn’t really made any serious American films in what feels like decades. Nowadays, he’s known for his wacky stunts and ability to shoot extensive martial arts takes without ever stopping for air.
But he was once known for kicking ass and doing it with a very straight face. Which is why it pleases me to say that director Martin Campbell‘s latest film, The Foreigner, looks like it could be a return to serious form for Chan.
The film also features an almost unrecognizably dull Pierce Brosnan, which is to no surprise, since Campbell did direct him in previous Bond films.
Are you excited for this Jackie Chan revenger or does The Foreigner look like just another generic action flick for you?
