If you are a fan of Jackie Chan, then hastened to attend the viewing of his new film


This one I am just going to give the LINK to because it reveals a great deal of the plot and 'secrets' of the movie. You can choose if you want to read it or not.

However not all the response is as good as the ones above. Some audience members felt the plot was 'nothing new' (which let's face it is definitely NOT new) and that the film lacked 'hi-tech gear' and felt the spy gadgets were out-dated. Some audience members were not impressed with the acting of the villains in the film saying it was 'stiff' (wooden) but even saying that they still felt the film was enjoyable.


In the meantime Lionsgate hope to capitalize on Jackie's fans -
Helmed by Brian Levant ("Are We There Yet?"), "Spy" looks likely to register into the high-teen millions through Monday.

"Jackie Chan hasn't been in a PG film for a while, so we're going to be able to capitalize on his fan base," Lionsgate distribution topper David Spitz said.

"Spy" co-stars George Lopez and Billy Ray Cyrus, both good draws for family moviegoers.

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER Capitalizing on Jackie's considerable fan-base is not a bad thing but taking advantage of them is. Even the loyalest of fans will eventually throw up their hands in disgust! Come on Hollywood - surely you can find a GOOD movie for Jackie that doesn't involve racial and sexist humour (Rush Hour series) or puerile kids movies that have been done to death.

Let's hope Karate Kid is all I am expecting it to be.
