1. The Title has nothing to do with this movie.
2. The Picture on the DVD box also has nothing to do with this movie.
3. This movie is so far fetched, unrealistic and a total waste of time.
The story is about a 16 yr old boy (present day - again, having nothing to do with the 'historic costumes on the DVD cover)... who is bullied at school, and as he idolises Jackie Chan, he wants to become Jackie's diciple and learn Kung Fu to beat up his school mates.
This is rediculous, as any 16 yr old kid would have more brains that to actually follow through with it.
What's more rediculous is that he goes to Beijing to find Jackie... and everyone in Beijing is 'Oh-so helpful' to his cause...
During his search for Jackie, he 'traverse' a few situations that have no relevance what so ever
1. Living in a Monastry with a female Buddhist student who is really a movie actress wannabe.
2. Gets kidnapped by some amateur extorionists.
3. Befriends and saves a police woman, and in doing so, missed meeting Jackie Chan.
None of these incidences were ever closed in the plot of the movie.
In the end, he gets to meet Jackie who tells him, "Go home and study... coz you're China's future."
Don't waste your time on this movie. I was riding my exercise bike and my eyes were more sore than my thighs after the workout.
All in all... the story was good, the dubbing was horrible, the action was ok, the acting was sub par, and Jackie Chan played himself while not doing much fighting. The movie does send a good message, even with it being in Chinese.
Contrary to the cover art, the movie is really a "family" flick about a teenager who sets out to meet his fan Jackie Chan. Now this could be ok but the protagonist is a truly unlikeable, disrespectful, and irresponsible person with, what seems to be a disturbing obsession with Jackie Chan, who travels all the way from indonesia to bejjing by himself in hopes that he will learn kung fu from chan, never considering that maybe he'll get hurt. There are several instances where he even gets close to death but theres no sense of change for him. All he cares about is chasing an impossible dream.
Next, jackie chan appears only briefly in the movie, leaving the audience to have to follow the protagonist's story.
Lastly, the movie itself is not made very well. Decent fight scenes are ruined by bad camera shots and editing that gets akward at times. The story drags to the point where you question why you should continue watching, Scenes play out for what seems forever, and the protagonist never seems to go through an arc of any kind. I would honestly compare this kids story to that of an entitled brat who wants something so bad he does everything he can to get his way, diregarding anyone with common sense telling him to stop.
He meets him, and if you watch this, like me, you will feel like he doesnt deserve it because you find that his grandmother, who he never speaks highly of, helps him. And then you are treated to a completely forced lesson on tolerence for others and staying in school.
Overall i give this 1 out of 5 for at least having Jackie Chan but skip it.
