    Who would’ve thought that this video would become your most watched video on your AVGN YouTube page? It’s no wonder everybody loves Jackie Chan!

    You’ve gotta be kidding me. Only THREE comments on this video?! I’ve watched this and the top 10 Jackie Chan stunts video more times than I can remember. This and the other (Top 10 Jackie fight scenes) are great, great compilations. Jackie Chan is the friggin master! Not even Jet Lee holds a candle to this crazed madman of martial arts. I’d say the newest most badass martial artist out there is Tony Jaa. Anyone who hasn’t heard of him would do well to check out some of his fight scenes in The Protector and Ong Bak respectively. If you’re into those kinds of movies. They don’t have the same kind of classic Jackie Chan comedy that most people that watch these kinds of movies know and love, but MY GOD are they amazing regardless.

    People, seriously! These are the PINNACLE of physical stunts and fighting in movies! If you’re into martial arts movies, look into Jackie Chan, and newcomer Tony Jaa. Jet Lee is awesome too! It’s just my personal opinion that Jet Lee is in third place among these three no doubt amazing actors.

    Before anyone gets on my ass about it, sorry. I just realized I said “this and the top 10 Jackie Chan stunts video…” when THIS in fact, is the stunts video. My bad. If I could edit my last comment, I woulda, but I can’t. I know how much people love to screw with anyone who makes a mistake on the Internet so I just wanted to acknowledge my error before anyone else had the chance to call me an idiot for it. Either way I still stand by my comment, minus the small mistake I made. Chan, Jaa, and Lee all rock! Watch their shit!

    Screw you, ya fake-ass elitist bastards!! >:D

    I was watching an interview with Jackie Chan on my DVD of Police Story (after watching these top 10s a bought of few films). He said that he did think “I’m going to die” before sliding down the 70 ft pole. Then he said that after he did the stunt, he and his crew went out and got drunk.

    His movies are awesome, and so was Jackie Chan Adventures.

    I love Jackie Chan. Next best thing to Bruce Lee. Seriously though. Awesome. Though I’ve heard a disturbing rumor that he’s finally going to start using Stunt Doubles. Not that I can blame him. He’s managed to reach an age he can be considered old. What is he? 40? 50? He can’t bounce back like he used to. And certainly not with the abuse he’s put his body through. Imagine the arthritis he probably already has. The sheer will power this man exudes every day just to continue on is mind boggling. That said, he is a bone head. And as life has proven time and again, fate is on the side of idiots. :)

      for a 59 year old MASTER of Stunts, Stunt Coreagraphy, Directing, Acting, over 7 types of Martial Arts and still adding to his list, singing, script writing, cinematography (the film Mr Canton and Lady Rose rings a bell ;) – )

      CZ12 shows Jackie doing some insane stuff – Especially once again at age 59 – whomever stated that he uses doubles or that in 2010 he was 40 -laughs- or even 50! is out of their minds; He was 41 when RUMBLE IN THE BRONX came out. (wrap your head around that; People think he was in his late 20′s or something as he looked young and moved like a 16 year old on steroids; at age 59 as Chinese Zodiac (CZ12) showed us (It’s the third Armor of God film or in the USA “Operation Condor” films – )that he could still do all his own stunts in situations that in the past 6-7 years he has not attempted due to the pain all over his body and risk of death etc (he states everyday he wakes up in pain all over especially ankles and wrists) and yet in CZ12 with out any stunt doubles (thats a BS statement, and he will not use doubles in the future either; he wants to stay legitiment and will go where his skill allows him to go, never faking who he is) Created, Coregraphed, Directed, Wrote, Stunt Directed, Fought etc in one of his most excellent fight scenes in the 2000′s onward era: – This scene here – (Spoilers as it is a fight scene from His most recent release CZ12 (Chinese Zodiac) – Look forward to Police Story 2013 in theaters December – http://youtu.be/HnIyys4IGL8 <the last on ground fight scene in CZ12; next goes directly into the falling in sky diving fight scenes followed by the rolling down an active volcano including rather pointy rocks on it stunt finale.

      So YEAH!! He is 59 years old and still does all his own stunts – just at times he now MAY use a wire – In chinese zodiac (CZ12 his most recent released film, although Police Story 2013 comes out in 2 months) – He used a wire only twice during filming, and that movie includes a skydiving fight scene – an amazing "Fight from the past" in his energy and athleticsm (reminds me a bit of Dragons Forever) during the security guard fight; Some really really fantastic sunts, especially the rollerblade suit (another classic slidding under a high speed vehicle while being pinned on a stopped vehicle sequence that (like in Armor of god 2: Operation Condor when the moving metal grates are going up and down as they fight; jackie moves his head slightly just to miss literally having his face / head split in half?) – same distance just about – he must have had less than 5 inches of clearance to the top of the truck to his FACE.
      - A wire was used at opening of the rollerblade scene when he initially is propellered face first thru glass and onto the road in the rollerblade suit; it guides him onto the road from the upper tier and then is auto-unattached from the suit. Clicks right off in the out-takes to show how it was done; also the "MAKING OF" portion of the Blu-Ray/DVD – second Wire scene is only 2-3 minutes later at the end of this very long stunt (a wire wasn't even used while he was roller blading on the side of the highway railing that he was "grinding on" while pushing off of the fast moving vehicles to keep his balances on the railing and also not fall on the street to be run over xDD – (He also ends up doing a very very dangerous motorcycle stunt which has to do with jumping on it mid ride and slamming on the brake with one hand while accelerating (the rider still accelerated) then letting go of the brake to basically flip the driver of the motorcycle upside down and drag him; which added a "comical" "Road Burn" thru the guys pants to show his Boxers as he patted his ass in pain – Turns out Jackie Chan doubled for one of his Jackie Chan Stunt Team Members as none of the guys could get it the way he wanted; so after jumping on the bike and holding the brake he cut the scene – then filmed himself with the other guys gear on during the release of the brake to have it flip and him be dragged.)
      - about a minute after THAT scene is the last time he uses any type of "Wire" or "Harness" in the film, and this is just the opening 3.5-4.5 minutes – at the end of this opening scene he does a 360 in a drain pipe (still in the suit) out area leading to a waterfall to do a body spin and be caught by a helicopters net- It's one of the only parts of the film that looks "Well, that wasn't legit" or "Well, That was a CGI mixed with a harness" basically he dide skate out but had a harness propel and aid him to the net (it might have been to be slightly humorous as he was going like 60MPH in this skate suit and the 360 in the pipe was at the fastest acceleration; perhaps impossible to do without a harness?? – but he was propelled into the net as if it was a spider web; and direct to a cell phone call where he claims he is on vacation – so it is excused)
      Rest of the film No Wires. No Need – He is all Chan as you saw in that scene I posted above.

    Great Top 10 list! I have seen all the movies on the list, as well as many more. I agree with the selections that you made. Jackie Chan mentioned in an interview, that Bruce Lee accidentally hit him with a fighting stick on the side of his face during a fight scene in Enter the Dragon. Jackie said that Bruce hugged him and said how sorry he was. Can you imagine getting hit in the face by Bruce Lee?? That would fucking suck some major ass! That alone proves that Jackie is the freekin man!

  • October 28, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    its so hard to motivate me to watch movies lol, idk why.
    but jackie chan? man i loved this guy. my favorite movie is drunken master, which is called drunken master 2 in the us.
    yeah, they really went berserk which switching movie-names here in germany.
    the movies i liked the most mainly happened in old china or in the city-china from the 80´s. the humor was the best :)
    that movie with that will smith kid… what the hell. only proves that you just need to be a kid of a famous actor so you can play those big roles.

    If you want to know more about Jackie and his acting, stunting, traning, directing, tips and tricks you should check out “Jackie Chan – My Stunts”.
    It’s 1 hour and 30 min about jackie and his movie career.

    And about the #1 stunt… right before he jumps he shouts and when you look at his face you know he had his doubts.

    Why i think Jackie’s movies are the best… no bluescreens, His humor and the way he use every available object of the set in the fights and stunts.

    The only thing that saved Jackie from paralysis after that last stunt was the guys fanning him.

    Jackie Chan is an action and stunt legend. I’m shocked the man hasn’t already gotten stunt doubles to perform for him, he’s 57 years old!

    Whether you love his movies, or hate his movies, you have to admit, it takes huge fucking balls to do what he does and has done for as long as he did.

    Jackie Chan inspired me to be in the film industry. He taught me action scenes can be entertaining even on a low budget.

    Maybe Jackie Chan is more badass than Chuck Norris.

    • October 17, 2013 at 12:25 pm

      Maybe? Jackie Chan has been my fn Hero for years and years… I have 73 of his films on my Computer as the highest quality re-issue DVD release or Blu-Ray Release added to my external as you never know what happens with DVDs/Blu-Rays, and I dig making montages. – Jackie Chan even today is still a god of Stunts and martial arts. He is 59 years old – Most “Hollywood goerers) don’t realize that when Rumble In The Bronx hit it big in the USA that Jackie was already 41 years old!!! yes he moved like a 16 year old Olympic Athlete on Steroids who was geneticallty altered with superman – but That’s Jackie Chan; That makes him 44 when his first “Hollywood made blast success” with Rush Hour in 1998 was released (along with the film Who Am I from 98 as well) –

      At age 59; here is a fight scene from his most recent released film (CZ12) (although his most recent completed film will be out in 2 months the 6th Police Story entry entitled “Police Story 2013″) – still no stunt doubles or CGI etc

    My earnest respect to the man for these. But even when he’s not doing stunts and he’s singing the cantonese version of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” he’s still such a badass.

    Harrison Ford had to use stunt double Vic Armstrong for his action scenes as Indiana Jones, but Jackie Chan put himself at risk in every action scene he did and made them that much more intense. If he had ever been in a movie as well made as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jackie Chan would be remembered as the best action star of all time.

    Jackie Chan is such a badass. Might not be the greatest fighter of all time- or even close- but he sure had more guts than anyone I know of!
