Showing hints of self-awareness never before seen in the action star, Jackie Chan has recently come out and said the Rush Hour series might not be as mind-blowingly awesome as we've been led to believe. Chan said of the film on his blog:
When we finished filming, I felt very disappointed because it was a movie I didn't appreciate and I did not like the action scenes involved. I felt the style of action was too Americanized and I didn't understand the American humor.
The actor added that it was only the insane amounts of money he'd be paid that kept him involved, noting that Rush Hour 3 wasn't really that good either:
Nothing particularly exciting stood out that made this movie special for me ... I spent four months making this film and I still don't fully understand the humor.
This is a huge step for Chan, and it's hoped within the next few months he may come to realize that The Tuxedo wasn't as revolutionary as once thought and that Shanghai Knights may have been a bit unnecessary as a sequel. In time, he may even learn to recognize his reflection or the sound of his name, but it's unlikely he will ever admit The Medallion was kind of shitty.
