A Restless Warrior With Many Layers

Excerpts from an exclusive interview with BIOGRAPHY.COM

...[Dragon Blade] still features the amazing fight choreography and cinematography that only Chan knows how to design. "Today's audiences also want emotion, and, in fact, having a strong plot helps the action sequences develop much more naturally," Chan tells Bio. "We tried our best to tone down the fancy fighting styles that you normally see in Chinese action films because this film is about ancient Romans with their own fighting traditions. For the Romans, fighting is all about force; about brute power."


"I would like audiences to consider me as an actor who can do action, not just as an action star," he says. "And I really look forward to trying more dramatic roles. In the future, I will still continue to do action comedy, but also other new genres, too."


On the set, Chan takes his producer credit seriously. He sees everything as his responsibility, including cleaning the studio along with the crew, recycling empty bottles, vacuuming, tidying up the common room, and making sure that everyone is happy with their accommodations. A self-proclaimed "neat freak," Chan laughs when his friends jokingly proclaim he has OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

The details of everything from the armour to the rooms and desks and every little thing made is also a part of why Dragon Blade is such a wonderful film to see. Jackie Chan can play anything, from comedy to drama and it is a pleasure to watch these films. They don't have to be full of fighting scenes to be a good movie, the films are the films with not so many fighting scenes. I hope Jackie will make films for a long, long time.
