Apparently Chinese authorities reckon that Rush Hour 3 is "fundamentally anti Chinese", but China's film bureau still say that the film has not been banned there, so it might just be cut to shreds in the editing room before it gets released in China.
Honestly that Chris Tucker is just too cheeky for billions of people across the world.
So it's been a while, exams took over my life for a little while. But while I was away Jackie has been working as hard as ever. He polished off Rush Hour 3, which is due to come out on August the 10th and starting filming The Forbidden Kingdom with Jet Li. (Fearless Jet's last martial epic? Didn't ever believe that one) And it seems like they're having a lovely time doing it.
Today I finally “fought” with Jet Li. It was as if we were brothers from the same kungfu school; every movement, punch, and kick was smooth – we could anticipate each others' moves, timing, and rhythm. I felt like I used to feel when I fought with Sammo Hung or YuenBiao. Whether it was eye-contact, a facial expression, or a turn, we were very much in harmony and it was really terrific!
Which gives me pretty high hopes for the film seeing as how well the films with Jackie, Sammo and YuenBiao turned out. Especially Wheels on Meals and Dragons forever, they are pretty much the perfect mix of comedy and action.
And in the meantime Jackie's restaurant in Hawaii, called Jackie's Kitchen, closed down. Oh well, he's never been the greatest entrepreneur.
