Dragon warrior
5 January 2013 | by (Republic of Macedonia) – See all my reviews

Wow - even if its not one of his greatest works. JC made an action movie for 10 mil $,earned two Guinness World Records: "Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie" and he did that with 58 years. Even if there are bad reviews from the critics, i must say as a fan, i am not disappointed. Really proud to chose this man as a hero of my childhood. This movie is suppose to end his carer. He has outdone himself in this one. Shows that his heart is with China's heritage. Even if you don't like his naive perspective of the world, we should strive to it. That is far from reality, but we can give it a try. The last worldwide action hero. Thanks for being a roll model my hats off to you.
