You know, I'm not sure I've ever seen Enter the Dragon in its entirety, which I should remedy soon. I do remember seeing The Big Brawl and I enjoyed it a lot. It seemed like an inspiration for the Street Fighter video games, with a large cast of multi-national oddballs competing in a tournament. Snake in the Eagle's Shadow was another early favorite of Chan's.


I think ETD was the inspiration for Mortal Combat as well. Jackie Chan I have heard is an acquired taste though I liked him from the first. Actually that was Big Brawl and the small parts in the Cannonball Run movies. Seeing him and Richard Kiel together was priceless. I saw a documentary on the Chinese Opera background him and Sammo among others went through and that was an eye opener. Like a five year long military boot camp for young would be actors. Breaking down Chan's career into four parts with the small parts then larger more serious roles followed by his long lasting control of his movies and finally the Hollywood break through years I enjoyed the third the most. His perfection mania was apparently a giant pain for others and himself at times.
