Chinese Zodiac Review - Bummer of GodJan 6, 2013News The rumors I keep hearing about this being Jackie Chan's last action movie seems more of PR material than anything. If I'm not mistaken his last movie, '1911' was supposed to be his last and he still made this and is now attached with 'The Expendables 3' and another 'Rush Hour' film, so don't trick me into buying a ticket for your latest by emotional blackmail, Mr. Chan.A sequel to, 'Armour of God' and 'Operation Condor' this has him playing treasure hunter, Hawk, again. This time trying to retrieve twelve sculptures made of bronze depicting the Chinese zodiac animals. This takes him around the world, facing a number of adversaries who of course happened to be well versed in the martial arts to allow an aging star to have his last few hurrahs.The attempts at humour are still there and so are prolonged battles but it's all rehashed from previous movies of Chan. Plus if you watch the other fight in the climax, between the two ladies, you'd realise how old Mr. Chan has really gotten. He still does try and push the envelope but most of it seems like just an overdose, except for a scene or two which still are competently crafted.Overall the movie has nothing exciting or fresh to offer fans and non-fans of Jackie Chan.

Chinese Zodiac is meant to be Jackie Chan's last action flick, and sadly it is so bad that not many audiences would remain if he ever gets back to ... read more
