Action hero Jackie Chan reduced to a travel host
THE mighty have indeed fallen.
Jackie Chan, once the esteemed action hero of Asia, has now become a
clowning travel host.
It's not a bad retirement job, especially since he does it so well in Skiptrace.
However, the Hollywood movie is supposed to be a road-trip action flick.
I guess the China investors had different ideas.
Chan's police officer Bennie is searching for crime boss The Matador.
Enter Johnny Knoxville's Connor Watts, a gambler
who stumbles across evidence that implicates Bennie's niece Samantha (Fan Bingbing),
who is then captured
by the bad guys.
The story is pretty straightforward but will take you on a massive detour around the touristy spots of Inner Mongolia, Guangxi
and Guizhou provinces.
The chemistry between Chan and Knoxville is non-existent.
The amazing stunts are nothing new.
Chan has officially passed his expiry date.
