Yes, Kung Fu Yoga, but before you scoff at the title remember the writer/director of this classic style Jackie Chan romp was none other than Stanley Tong.

Mr. Tong began his career as a stuntman in China, and after a huge success with Stone Age Warriors, of which he wrote, directed and stunt coordinated the film, he later directed Jackie Chan in SuperCop. Other Jackie Chan films he has had a hand in were both the American film Rumble in the Bronx and First Strike. He was a perfect choice for Kung Fu Yoga.

Stanley Tong’s history aside, everyone always seems to wonder at Jackie’s age can he still do the physical comedy we all know and love?

And the answer is a resounding YES!

Even though Jackie astounded us in the movie The Foreigner with a change to action drama opposite Peirce Brosnan, and showed us, yes, he could still take some knocks and bounce back, Kung Fu Yoga had the more fun feel Jackie has brought to the screen so many times before in films like Project A and, one of my favorites Wheels on Meals.
