Jackie Chan turns another year older Saturday. In honor of his birthday, we looked back over his extensive movie career over the last five decades and found these gems that are must-see.
The 64-year-old martial arts actor is beloved by his fans due to his incredible skills as an action hero and the lovable characters he plays.
He got his first break in Hong Kong cinema with the 1972 Bruce Lee film, “Fists of Fury.” But it was being cast for the role of Wong Fei Hung in the 1978 “Drunken Master” that put him on the road to stardom.
His biggest break came when he landed the role in the 1995 hit “Rumble in the Bronx,” bringing him to a whole new audience in the U.S. and making him a household name.
Picking just 10 of Chan’s greatest movies with a library spanning more than 100 appearances on the big and small screen over the last fifty years proved to be a fun challenge. But taking a look through his RottenTomatoes.com scores for his biggest movies, plus a bit of our own personal favorites, we came up with the following list.
Happy Birthday Jackie!
