Jackie Chan, Unlike his past comic roles, Jackie Chan is taking a serious nature, historic in film 100. Do not let his antics on the screen silly clown. Jackie Chan knows the story. He also knows how to weave his personal story in the bigger picture.
For the landmark film 100 of its nearly four decade career, the action star in Hong Kong has made 1911, a film about the Xinhai Revolution that toppled the Qing dynasty and established the Republic of China, for release in the centenary of the historic event.
“I pushed all my other movie projects just to finish 1911 as the film would lose its meaning if it were to be released later,” he said in Cantonese at a press conference in Hong Kong recently.
Chan, 57, was scheduled to start production on his next film other Chinese Zodiac, the third and final installment of the movie armor of God, due out next year and co-star South Korean star Kwon Sang Woo and his proposed sequel to The Karate Kid Hollywood last year, played by Jaden Smith.
In awe of the place of revolution in history, added: “Go see the movie, understand how our ancestors fought for what we have now and treasure it is important for all Chinese, both China and the abroad, to understand our own. the Chinese culture and remember that what we have today is due to the sacrifices made by our ancestors. That is why I decided to do this. ”
Clearly, in the face of a momentous anniversary, his kungfu funny side must take a back seat.
In 1911, which he co-directed, plays the military commander of Huang Xing, a member of Dr. Sun Yat Sen, who helps the revolutionary leader to overthrow the corrupt Qing government. It is his first attempt to portray a historical character in a movie and had to stretch the muscles that act in ways not known before.
While in many previous films, do not think twice about jumping off a tall building in a single leap and take a punch in the face for the sake of physical comedy here, Chan had to pause and take stock of shades emotional and dramatic.
