However, what you will see with this DVD is not really the movie The Accidental Spy at all. The distributing company have, for reasons best known to themselves, decided to cut about half an hour out of the movie for it's US release. They have also decided for us that we should watch the movie in English, despite it having been recorded in Jackie's native Cantonese. Dubbing ruins movies, pure and simple.
Hence, whilst I believe that people should see The Accidental Spy if they are a fan of Jackie Chan or action cinema in general, I cannot recommend that anybody purchase this DVD version.
Track down the Hong Kong DVD instead, which might not have Miramax level mastering, but at least presents the movie as it was meant to be seen. The butchery Miramax have applied to the movie is an offence to the movie makers and the US audiences in equal measures. Don't support releases like this, and maybe one day the US studios will learn to treat their audience with respect.
Jackie gives a strong performance in this Hong Kong spy thriller. He is a gym equipment saleman when a dectective tells him he is the son of a Korean spy.His father is on his deathbed when Jackie sees him but it turns out his father was a double agent and some turkish drug lords are after him. The plot is silly but it gives jackie a chance to do some spectacular stunts.
Right from the beginning when he crashes through a building wall on a crane to the end when he is on a burning lorry, the pace of the movie never slows. You would never guess that jackie is almost 50 with the stunts that he performs in here.My favourite scene was when Jackie was fighting the Turks in the market (semi naked) used every item possible to defend himself. It is classic Jakie Chan action from the word go.
It is a succesful return to Hong Kong theature for Jackie after some Hollywood films (Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon) but he once again proves he has got what it takes.It may lack a good plot and some of the intense fighting of Chan's older Hong Kong flicks but The Accidental Spy is defeniatly one to see.
With this film, Jackie proves once again, that he is the man of action films. No one does it better. Period. The stunts in this film are amazing as usual and Jackie still looks in top form even though he's pushing 50. The fight scenes are creative and use Jackie's usual style of incorporating many different objects and people into the scenes. The best scene in the movie is a 10 minute fight fest that lands Jackie naked on the streets of Turkey. Very creative!
The plot of the movie is pretty decent for a JC film. Basically, Jackie gets mixed up in a drug war between the Koreans and the Turkish. I watched the english dubbed version so I'm sure the plot lost a little bit in the translation. But the plot is not the main reason we watch these type of films right? The action is great and definately worth the price of the dvd alone.
The dvd is ok. The picture and audio are acceptable but the extras and menus are not.
Jackie Chan doesn't disappoint as 'the accidental spy', his charm, creativity, and unmatched skill make for a pleasant combination. However, the plot makes leaps and bounds across the realm of logic (this is where the popcorn comes in as a tasty from of distraction). The storyline is (predictably) a bit goofy, and a bit off, but Chan's physical artistry makes up for it all.
This is not a spectacular film, it could have certainly used more of the funniness of the market chase scene in Istanbul (hilarious!) and less of the gunfire and blood, but it is entertaining nonetheless. Stangly enough, this movie is so much fun because of its two-dimensional nature. My major complaint is that the DVD doesn't have any extras or goodies; more outtakes from filming would have been great. The bloopers at the end are funnier than the movie itself. The dubbing is a bit dodgy, but I don't know if subtitles would have suited the pace of this movie any better.
