LOOKING FOR JACKIE * (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Looking for Jackie
focuses on the young boy’s view of Jackie Chan to the point that the movie gets a bit boring and slow. The whole movie proceeds in this manner so that it becomes difficult to finish. There is little screen time given to Jackie Chan and that creates a disappointment for this movie’s audience. The acting and portrayal in the film is good. It just seems that Jackie is missing throughout the film.

Maybe. The acting is good, but a better film is The Foreigner.
