Take a tour of Jackie Chan's Hong Kong


Here’s a fun Jackie Chan fact - He’s an Australian citizen, and visits at least once or twice a year, as well as owning a home here. A large part of his family lives here, as did his parents before they passed away.

His nickname “Jackie” came from his youth, working on Building sites around Canberra.


Wow, cool.

Tony Zhou’s Every Frame a Painting series has been linked here, but if you haven’t seen it, here’s his piece on Jackie Chan’s work ethic and his approach to action comedy (also, how American filmmakers usually fail to do it well):


Uhh, you are aware that the video this article is based on is about 15 years old, right? (It’s been on youtube since 2012 too!)

Since you didn’t mention that, I’m assuming you didn’t know.

Nice to know that, but irrelevant to those of us who were unaware of it and had never seen it before.
