Is that the one where he was using the guy's clothing against him, so the other one was taking off those bits of clothing?

yeah that part was so awesome..and Jackie kept trying to prop him up to kick him but his legs were too rubbery to stand anymore haha.

Dude that is one of the best. Specifically the tie scene. How tedious must that have been?

Not only would Doom love this thread...Doom already DID this thread. Kinda.


...and not only did I make a thread....my first choice is actually Jackie Chan's Who Am I rooftop fight scene.










I am awesome and so ahead of my time.

i honestly dont know how you can LOVE Bruce Lee and then take a complete 180 and HATE Jackie Chan..they are masters of entertainment and ass kicking. but to each his own i guess.

Bruce Lee is the founder of ass-kicking and if it wasn't for him, Jackie Chan wouldn't be the international movie star he is today.

I see the 2 as completely different beings.

Bruce Lee was a straight martial artist who starred in a handful of movies.

Jackie Chan is an actor who was trained in martial arts.



The difference is training. Jackie has always been a student of stage and screen. He's learned how to choreograph his entire fight scene and knows what looks great on screen and what doesn't.

Bruce knew martial arts and had an idea of how to choreograph a fight scene.

Thats not even close to being the truth.. Jackie Chan may have done a few jobs as an extra in a Bruce Lee flick but saying Jackie Chan would'nt have made it w/out Bruce is a huge mistake. Like Doom said they are both unique in their own right.
