Jackie Chan who started singing at a young age his break into the industry. (I own almost all his albums) Is not only a remarkable Stuntman & Actor but as well as a humanitarian. I got to meet Mr. Chan in Vegas, Nevada years back. He along with many Chinese colleagues were in the US, raising money for our Senior Citizens.
Since then we have kept in touch, he has helped me with my learning Mandarin Chinese and I admire all the charity work he does for his country and the US.
This DVD was sent from a friend of mine who lives in China. It is incredible how he worked so hard to get where he is.

"Now that I realize it, Jackie Chan is the only director I know who revealed his secrets on a full-length feature film. You get to see in the film how he makes his movies, preps for his stunts, choreograph his fight scenes, and you will be amazed by how Jackie Chan does it. I used to think Jackie was a very talented, and very incredible peron. Now I think much more. In this film, Jakie shows you how ingenious and creative he is by going back to the locations of the Young Master, Police Story, Who Am I, and Rush Hour as well as brand new never-before-scenes you can't miss. My only complaint is the title scene that comes on when you start the DVD (it takes forever). It's Chinese yes, but he speaks English on one side and Mandarin on the other (neither are his first language). If you can find this autographed, get it (I did). Don't listen to the other review, he/she's wrong."
Everybody loves Jackie!

"Whether you are a die hard Jackie fan or a passive visitor of the infinite Jackie video libraries you will find this "documentary" highly entertaining. This isn't a typical type of documentary because it features Jackie and his stunt crew showing off how the intricacies of their action sequences. It seems Jackie actually took the time to film this twice, one where he speaks his native language and another time where it is filmed in english. He didn't simply dub it, there are two sides to the DVD.Pay attention as Jackie nails the camera while demonstrating how they use fake blood...what a pro!"
Very Helpful and entertaining

"I find myself constantly fascinated by this man, Jackie Chan. He never ceases to amaze me. Look how old he is and try to understand how he does what he does. He truly is a legend in the flesh.This particular DVD is an excellent example of how Jackie makes his stunt driven movies. He goes into fine detail on how he sets up the scenes and prepares for each of his breathtaking stunts. It also gives you a little insight on Jackie's creative stunt team that have been black listed on the insurance market for doing what they do. It shows that without them Jackie's stunts would never look as good as they do. For me this DVD was a great "HOW TO" movie. I myself make cheesy movies every now and again with friends and hope to someday make big budget movies, this DVD showed me how to perform some stunts with better protection and just made me think of new ways I can decieve the audience. Mind you, don't go trying this stuff at home unless you are physically fit and mentally fit for it.In the end I would have to say this is just another Jackie Chan movie that must be in your collection. What's great is that there are two sides to the disc, one is English (yay!) and the other is Mandarin. No subtitles here baby! Buy it, buy it, buy it I say! For Jackie Chan will never fail to entertain you."
