Jackie Chan Movies In Order

Jackie Chan is one of the most well-known actors in the world staring in over 150 movies and earning dozens of various awards. Most notable for his martial arts skills, Chan performed many of his own stunts throughout his career. His talent seemingly knows no bounds over the years as he’s taken professional roles in directing, producing, and even singing. His long career in show business has earned him spots on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as the Hong Kong equivalent. Starting in the mid-1970s and continuing on to modern times, Chan has been inspiring people around the world.

Chan’s career started in 1976 in Hong Kong where he grew up when he was invited to star in New Fist of Fury. The producer had seen Chan perform martial arts and wanted him to take on the style of a quickly rising star, Bruce Lee. The film wasn’t as popular as expected, but the producer Lo Wei still saw something in Jackie. His first major success was seen in the movie Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow where Chan was allowed to perform his own martial arts style. No longer in the shadow of Bruce Lee, Jackie thrived performing his own stunts with a style he was familiar with. This was the beginning of a long full movie list that would encompass a life-time of great films.

By the 1980s Chan was starting to become established as a world class actor. However, his success in Hollywood remained limited as fans favored familiar American actors. After dabbling in Hollywood in the early 80s and failing to land a large role, he moved back to Hong Kong where his career would start to take off. His first major hit was called The Young Master, which was the movie that would put Chan on the same level as other top actors in Hong Kong such as Bruce Lee. During this time he started doing more and more elaborate stunts. Combining his martial arts skills, with extreme stunts eventually cemented the style that movie goers around the world would come to adore.

In 1998 Chan starred in the popular comedy movie Rush Hour with Chris Tucker. This movie was the one which got American movie lovers to take notice of his bubbly personality and daring stunts. Rush Hour was the start of Jackie’s prosperous career in Hollywood, and would eventually lead to him starring in popular movies such as The Karate Kid, and The Spy Next Door.

After a wave of Hollywood success, Chan grew frustrated over the lack of control he had as an actor. In 2003 he formed his own production company, JCE Movies Limited. The Hong Kong based production company would go on to produce over a dozen movies such as House of Fury and The Myth.

In his later years Chan’s style started to evolve from the realistic martial arts scenes that fans were used to. In The Forbidden Kingdom there was heavy use of special effects including exaggerated fight scenes that involved wires, heights, and dramatism. Chan worked closely with Jet Li where they fed of each other’s experience. In previous fight scenes, there would be a dozen takes or more as his inexperienced opponent would forget routines. With an experienced martial artist such as Li, they were completely in sync, making it one of the easiest experiences he’s had.
Jackie Chan has cemented his name in martial arts history. Years of hard work, and dozens of great movies have turned this famous actor into a household name. With over 150 movies and a long-standing career in both acting and directing, Chan is one of the most legendary martial artists of his time. With an ever evolving movie list, he’s sure to produce many more hits for fans around the world.
