    Press release for the upcoming DVD release of Kung Fu Yoga.

    KUNG FU YOGA

    On Digital 31st July, and on Blu-Ray and DVD 7th August

    Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment / Well Go USA

    Starring Jackie Chan

    Fast Sell:

    It's Raiders Of The Lost Ark Jackie Chan-style, with a dash of Bollywood, as the unstoppable film legend hunts for treasure in this flat-out fun, all-action, globe-trotting comedy caper.

    Synopsis:

    World-renowned archaeology professor Jack and his
    team are on a grand quest to locate a lost ancient
    Indian treasure, when they are ambushed by a team of mercenaries and left for dead. Using his vast knowledge of history and kung fu, Jack leads his team on a race around the world to beat the mercenaries to the treasure, and to save an ancient culture.

    We like it because:

    Move over Kung Fu Panda, it's time for KUNG FU YOGA! Don't worry, it's not some kind of new-fangled exercise fad, but irrepressible martial arts superstar Jackie Chan's latest, that sees him reuniting with Supercop and Rumble

    In The Bronx director Stanley Tong, for this all out action caper, featuring superb fight scenes, motorcycle chases, ice caves, hidden treasures and a Bollywood-style set piece finale. As the Los Angeles Times says, 'good luck trying to stop that goofy smile from spreading across your face'.

    KUNG FU YOGA is family friendly fun, a mix of Bollywood exoticism and action comedy antics, showcasing veteran movie legend Chan's incredible martial arts skills and impeccable comic timing. Filmed in China, Dubai, India and Iceland, this is a must for fans of the National Treasure films and Chan's Around the World In 80 Days and Shanghai Knights.

    Hot quotes:

    “Silly old-school Jackie Chan fun, with a globe-hopping plot supplying exotic scenery” The Hollywood Reporter

    “A family-friendly reminder that Master Chan still has a trick or two up his sleeve” Screen Anarchy

    “As the leading man, Chan keeps the ball rolling with an assortment of neat acrobatic tricks and martial arts sparring” Variety

    I like POLICE STORY 2 as much as the first picture in the series.

    I think my first Jackie Chan picture was ARMOUR OF GOD, back in the late 1980s. DRAGONS FOREVER is probably one of my favourite of his 1980s films though.

    I may have actually watched Police Story or one of the sequels. I don't remember it though so maybe I should watch it again!

Drunken Master was a little more comedic than I wanted it to be but I was definitely impressed by young Jackie Chan. Pretty amazing. Looking forward to watching other old films of his!

    I agree..even though the opening set piece on the floating houses loiked great and classic on paper..in the movie it was just flat and boring....

    Western directors cannot reproduce classic Jackie...no matter how good everything else seems to be..just not possible..even CHAN himself has trouble recreating gis own stuff...see Chinese Zodiac for example...

    Would like to see Jackie in a serious violent movie ala Liam Neesons more recent stuff..would be great I think...

    Huh.

    Always happy to see Chan release something..even though I am usually not that happy to actually watch them!!!

    Interesting for that reporter to.mention that Chan might be doing a Loam Neeson type shift in his movies..kicking more ass..but in a more realistic (and hopefully violent ) way.It would be a good move..the guy is over 60!!

    The huge age difference between him and his leading ladies doesnt help either!!

    GORGEOUS with Shu Qi was the first really awkward one I remember seeing where the age difference was like wtf!!!

    It's funny how in Jackie's first US film, The Big Brawl, he's all over Kristine DeBelle (and who can blame him?), but subsequently he's had little to no chemistry with his leading ladies.

    I'm a glutton for punishment because I went to go see KUNG FU YOGA last weekend. I knew the movie would suck but I didn't follow my gut and instead sat through nearly 2 hours of mediocrity and Jackie being a shell of his former self. :poop: That one bollywood actress was pretty but as usual Jackie's onscreen chemistry with his love interest was non-existent and cringeworthy. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse than his wooing Jennifer Love-Hewitt in THE TUXEDO.
