** 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 madeóalthough by this point he was starting to look pretty old, and the female lead was young enough to be his daughter.

When his series/movies is dubbed in Japan, his voice is usually dubbed by HiroyaIshimaru. In LatinAmerica, he's dubbed by Juan Alfonso Carralero, who also dubs-over for WillSmith and David Hasselhoff, and in Spain, his voice is usually dubbed by Ricky Coello.

* JapaneseRanguage: Suffers from this despite being Chinese, although it's not extremely obvious as movies allow for retakes and the like if the dialogue doesn't come off the way it needs to. In his "My Stunts" special, however, he has no one feeding him lines, so it's much more prominent than in his films. In particular, during one part, he struggles hard (understandably) with the word "umbrella."
%% * JuggleFu

* JapaneseRanguage: Suffers Since Cantonese (a dialect of Chinese that doesn't used the rhotic r sound at all) is his first language, Jackie suffers from this despite being Chinese, the same L/R confusion, although it's not extremely obvious as movies allow for retakes and the like if the dialogue doesn't come off the way it needs to.

%% * JuggleFuJuggleFu: Indulged in from time to time as part of his improvisational fighting style.
