Summary: Stunts are fine, but in real fights people get hurt
Comment: Moving from Hong Kong to Melbourne Jackie Chan continues
his dance routines. Choreography seems to be the method in his movies.
He can probably disable somebody with one punch ( if he wanted to).
But action, comedy and gangsters make people pay to see these.
For me this is a boring kind of film. Jackie Chan is a master of bobbing and weaving, but must have scars to prove you can't always get the stunts right.
He does seem like Mr. Nice Guy.

Summary: solid nice guy entertainment
Comment: As with many of his films, Jackie Chan relies more on stunts and action than story in Mr. Nice Guy. The movie contains mostly stunts like Rumble in The Bronx & First Strike and not so much in the way of one on one fights such as Who Am I and Legend of Drunken Master.

Jackie Chan plays "Jackie Chan", famous tv chef located in Melbourne, Australia, where the movie pretty much all takes place in. He becomes the "Nice Guy" by helping out a female reporter escape from Gene Carter (Richard Norton) and his gang of goons. She accidentally leaves her videotape of one of Gene's illegal business deals with Jackie, and that's when Jackie becomes entangled in the mess throughout the rest of the movie.

Several highlights in this film include Richard Norton, who plays the bad guy boss, like in many of his movies. There is a funny cameo from Sammo Hung, who also directed Mr. Nice Guy. There are tons and tons of chase/stunt scenes featuring Jackie. The best is one of the last scene at a construction sight. Another good but small one is on the street. A Pepsi truck overturns, looses all the cans of soda, and Jackie and a goon are fighting it out in thousands of exploding cans of soda. The final scene in the movie involves Jackie driving a MASSIVE construction vehicle through Gene's "cheap-looking" mansion. Really cool, though you can kinda tell its a cardboard set. Oh yeah, and his sports car collection gets crushed too. Oh, and the dubbing on the film is rather done well too.

I miss a really good fight scene the most from this movie, but the stunts make up for it. If you enjoy Rumble In The Bronx, First Strike or Supercop, Mr. Nice Guy needs to be added to the collection.

Summary: Not Jackie's best movie
Comment: So, why is this tv chef such a tough guy anyway? I enjoyed this movie, but the plot wasn't that interesting, and none of the bad guys seemed to be all that tough, so the fights were just all Jackie. Even with Jackie's hands and legs tied, the big boss presents no challenge to Jackie. Stunts were okay, like Jackie hanging from a doorknob at a construction site. Overall, though, this movie doesn't have anything that would make me say it was anywhere near his best movie.

Summary: ORIGINAL IS BETTER
Comment: If you want UNCUT ORIGINAL version, ALWAYS look for ORIGINAL LICENSED Production. NOT US Release. Its a foreign film, it should not be US version to begin with~! HELLO!!!?? Why settle for LESS with US Version where they edit and cut so many excellent scenes especially with Jackie's Fighting Scenes. And US Release ruins the speed and sound as well. I have been collecting Jackie Chan's movies both HK and US Release Version for quite some time now. I found HK Version to be MUCH MORE in enjoyable, and HIGHER in Quality. American Market always like to "Americanize" and "Control". Regional Code Regulation thing is one of the example to CONTROL the Market. Why not let everyone enjoy the same HK Original Release move the same way ENTIRE WORLD enjoys it ?? No one makes Hollywood American movies to "French version" or "Chinese Version" ~! This what Americans are doing~! Well, enjoy the cheap "American version" then~! LOL

Summary: Great humor and acting!!
Comment: Ow, of all the Jackie Chan movies I own, this is certainly one of the best. The way he fights always is very funny, and ofcourse, Richard Norton does a great job on this one playing Giancarlo. Giancarlo is the coolest and funniest mafia boss I've ever seen in a movie. I'll tell you what the story is about:
It's about gangs which have a problem with business, and then they see people filming them. Ofcourse they don't like that, and they start chasing them. The man was shot, the girl ran away with the tape, and then she ran to Jackie, and then he gets in trouble. It's very funny, it's not longwinded although it's more than 50% chasing and fighting. Jackie plays a very skilled cook, and the funniest thing is, he doesn't know anything about why the gangs want him.
I really like this movie. I shall say, if you want to have a good laugh, buy Mr. NiceGuy, sit back, and most importantly, enjoy.
Keep On Rocking!!!!!!!!!
