Mr. Nice Guy (1997)

Mr. Nice Guy (1997)

Directed by: Sammo Hung

Starring: Jackie Chan, Richard Norton, Miki Lee

So… Jackie Chan is punching through some police tape that says “MR.             GUY”, and he wrote the word “NICE” on his knuckles? …What the fuck is that? Also, why are his legs trying to escape his body? Dammit, I should know better to actually analyze movie posters.

Jackie Chan is a TV chef a la Martin Yan (which is a pretty great premise for a Jackie Chan movie, you gotta admit) who accidentally gets caught up with some gangsters who are trying to get something from a pretty girl. Just like EVERY SINGLE MOVIE JACKIE CHAN HAS EVER MADE.

This is prime Jackie Chan stuff, and though it’s not even close to his best film, it still has all those things you expect and enjoy from this era of his movies. Awesome choreography, Jackie being some friendly, happy guy, and some moderately attractive Asian chicks. It’s not a film to seek out, but not one to turn off if it’s on TV or something, either.
