Oh, and if your new to the older Jackie movies and wondering why some actors look like they're speaking English and others appear to be dubbed, it's because some of the actors spoke their native language and others did not. That way anyone could be cast in a role, knowing they would be dubbed later. So there is no original language audio track for alot of Jackie's movies because the dubbed version kind of is the original version.
Mr. Nice Guy was icing on the cake as Jackie proved that Nice Guys do finish first it is so obvious that he is really a nice guy in real life by the smile on his face and his easy going attitude during the bloopers scenes this role was just meant for him. I think I must now have all of Jackie's movies and I hope to see more of him, just no more stunts done by him personally, I want him around for a long time.
Highlights here for me...
- Ski slope chase.
- Hotel suite fight.
- Warehouse ladder battle.
Mr. Nice Guy...
- Van Fight with Sammo Hung as a cyclist.
- Construction site fight.
- Jackie vs. Giancarlo end sequence.
I currently favor First Strike over Mr. Nice Guy, but it's nice to have 2 films to choose from. And Mr. Nice Guy is directed by Sammo Hung(!). These movies emphasize acrobatic excellence & the creative use of props in a fight over the straight-up, one-on-one fights we've seen earlier in Jackie's career. In both films Jackie plays a character named "Jackie", which does simplify things a bit :). He's like James Bond in First Strike, and he plays a celebrity chef in Mr. Nice Guy. First Strike has a globe-trotting feel to it, going from Hong Kong to Ukraine to Russia to Australia. Mr. Nice Guy is set strictly in Australia. These may not generally be considered Jackie's absolute best, but I love the creativity in the action scenes in both.
Sammo does a decent job directing Jackie as a chef in Mr. Nice Guy; he also directed Jackie as a skateboarding caterer in Wheels on Meals circa 1984. Notice the similar "food theme" in both.:) It's not a coincidence; the similarities are many. In both films, Jackie is essentially a "nice guy" who helps a female being chased by thugs, and who then gets promptly caught up in the action. Both films briefly feature a motorcycle gang. Both films strongly reference a major softdrink; in Wheels it's Coke, and in Nice Guy it's Pepsi.Read more ›
