* ''Film/CannonBallRun'': Easy to miss as this movie was before he broke out as a international star. He and another Asian actor were brought over to be the tech-savvy [[InterchangeableAsianCultures Japanese]] racers who cannot speak a word of English.

** His autobiography includes a filmography with comments by the man himself. One film he laments making, ''The Protector'', was completely gratuitous and nonsensical (as in, a drug den staffed by naked women), and another, ''All In The Family'', contains his only on-screen sex scene (which he says was terrible and nobody should ever want to see it.)

* ''Film/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays2004'': Good stunts but horribly misplaced in the film. Should be noted this was one of the few live-action films he acted for Creator/{{Disney}}.

[[note]] This was one of several bombs for both Chan and Disney, and this film was also part of a year's slate that helped get CEO Michael Eisner evicted from the firm [[/note]]

** The constant panicked looks Jackie gives when he's clinging from a tall building or helicopter? Also real.

** The constant panicked looks Jackie gives when he's clinging from a tall building or helicopter? Also real. He notes in his autobiography that all the marketing describing him as fearless is total crap: "Anyone who thinks I'm not scared out of my mind when I'm doing one of my stunts is crazier than I am."

* ''Film/CityHunter'': Based on the HojoTsukasa manga, and most famous for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4Psls1ngwM funny and enterprisingly well done]] StreetFighter 2 parody, which is usually considered to be [[BetterThanCanon better than the movie]]! [[OldShame Jackie personally dislikes it, though]].

[[OldShame Jackie personally dislikes it, though]]. During production of the movie, Jackie Chan and director Creator/WongJing took such a dislike to each other that Wong Jing's next movie, ''Film/HighRisk'', featured a vicious TakeThat satire of Chan. The satire was so nasty and over-the-top that the movie's star Creator/JetLi afterward issued a public apology to Chan for having taken part in it, and it is thought that residual bad blood over the incident is what kept Chan and Li from starring together until ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom'', when both were well into their middle age.



* ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom'': Part of his attempt to do more 'serious' movies and roles, and also notable for being his only collaboration to date with Creator/JetLi. ([[JustHereForGodzilla Just that promise got asses in seats]], we assure you.)

* ''Film/TheAccidentalSpy'': Not to be confused with the above, this is one of the better Hong Kong films from the latter part of Jackie's career, when he'd started getting too old to do the same sort of extreme stunts he had in his youth. Noteworthy for filming in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar (which would later be a setting for ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' as well), a chase/fight scene that features a completely nude Jackie and some clever camera blocking, and a final set piece involving a "Speed" style truck chase rather than a fight scene.

* ''Film/PoliceStory'' features some jaw-dropping amazing stunts (with no CGI!) and is sometimes called 'Glass Story', due to the ridiculous number of sugar glass panels that break in the final 20 minutes of so of the movie. It's also important to mention that it has ''three'' sequels and a spinoff. Also, Chan considers it his best action film. The sequels to this film are:

* ''Film/{{Gorgeous}}'': Another atypical Jackie Chan film, as close to a rom-com as Jackie Chan ever made—although by this point he was starting to look pretty old, and the female lead was young enough to be his daughter.
