Movie Info

Ever wondered what a James Bond movie might be like if (a) Bond was from Hong Kong, (b) he was too busy to chase women or drink martinis, and (c) he spent a lot more time kicking people? Well, Jackie Chan gives us an idea of what the results might be as he plays a superspy in this funny and fast-moving action saga.

There's definitely more than three rings' worth of death-defying feats, high-flying slapstick and even a few well-trained animal acts.

Audience Reviews for Jackie Chan's First Strike

Badly dubbed, but very typically Jackie Chan in every other way, humour, creative fight sequences, watchable, but not one of his best.

even less substance than your normal action flick, but hey, its jackie chan. the action was excellent and the short running time makes this a very worth while viewing when youre just in the mood to see some kung fu.

After being a little disappointed with Rumble in the Bronx, First Strike was a great comeback from everyone's favourite martial artist/wannabe comic.

As ever, it was the action and the jokes which moved the show along, and it delivered plenty - the huge fight scene in the aquarium and the ladder fight highlighting Jackie's infinite brilliance (and infinite pain tolerance, in the latter case - see the outtakes). And as for those koala underpants...well, some things you just need to see. A much better installment in the Jackie Chan legacy - not to mention that it was filmed Down Under, which as we all know is the greatest place on Earth :)
