Jackie Chan Remains at the Top!
25 September 2002 | by (Arlington, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Chinese actor Jackie Chan proved to be the best actor,and stunt-man in "The Accidental Spy "in its English dubbed version. There had been a combination of action,thrill,and comedy in this film where Jackie portrays a man who discovers that his father was an agent and he finds himself involved with a Chinese drug Mafia. Also,Jackie never hesitates to add more suspense,and humor in "The Accidental Spy",including the Turkish bath scene,and the burning truck which makes him a star with unique qualities superior to other actors. Finally,this film with its wonderful cast,and director Teddy Chan deserves 10 stars.
