This is not a Review of CZ12

This is not a review of CZ12 but rather just some of my thoughts for others who have seen the movie or will be seeing the movie.

  1. This is a "Jackie Chan" movie ie it has all the elements that make up a traditional Jackie Chan movie - great stunts, lots of action, lots of humour BUT Jackie's style has matured and evolved. In a recent interview Jackie spoke about how he has reviewed his traditional fights. His fight scenes evolved from being him dissatisfied with the old way of fighting one-on-one while the rest of the group waited for their turn to fight. Jackie showed the world intricately choreographed fight scenes with many opponents attacking him at the same time. However he spoke about how that isn't realistic either. Many opponents would simply over power one person. So he has evolved back to fighting only 1 or 2 opponents for the sake of realism.

    So be warned don't look for that old Jackie style of fighting.

  2. There are a lot of messages in the movie where Jackie takes the opportunity to express his point of view. Look out for them. One of them in particular explains something that was misrepresented in the press recently.

  3. There are a LOT of references to both previous Armour Of God movies. Look out for those too.

  4. Watch out for a number of notable guest appearances.

  5. Watch the outtakes at the end carefully - there is one in particular that is a surprise!
Enjoy the movie!

i watched the end fight scene and i think it is classical jackie. he uses the fight style that he uses in the 90s.with all the slapstick and fight on the run.its reminds me on mr.niceguy and first strike.specialy the umbrella scene is typical jackie.bot he also does some badass leg takedown that we haven't seen from him yet.i think that everyone that likes jackie will truly enjoy the fights.

It is not a personal message it is part of Jaycee's song which is playing out the credits and is just a quote from an interview in which Jackie says CZ12 will be his last big action movie.

Subtitles for what? There are no legal copies of the movie available to make subtitles for. I'm not helping for that. Please buy a legal copy of the movie. If you are fan please respect Jackie's copyrights.
