Jackie Chan is Chun Li! Jokes & other Funny Stuff 03 NOV 2011

Well, at least he was for a bit in 1993’s Hong Kong martial arts action comedy “City Hunter”, directed by Wong Jing and based off Tsukasa Hojo’s popular at the time manga, City Hunter.

The manga series follows the exploits of Ryo Saeba, a “sweeper” or private detective who works to rid Tokyo of crime, and Kaori Makimura, a tomboyish girl who manages Ryo’s business affairs.
Their “City Hunter” business is an underground jack-of-all-trades operation, contacted by writing the letters “XYZ” on a blackboard at Shinjuku Station.

Anyway, to bring you up to speed, Jackie Chan who plays Ryo Saeba has been captured and has just escaped from a firing squad, stumbling inside a gaming parlor as he makes his escape. However, bad guy Donald Mac’s henchman Kim locates him and attacks, the result of which is Jackie seeing stars and more importantly… hallucinations!

Oh the fun! :)

Of course, for those of you unfamiliar with Street Fighter, what follows below will just be silly. But for those of us who grew up spending our money at the arcade on this game will undoubtedly absolutely love it to death!

For the record, Jackie absolutely hated this movie as well as his involvement in it, so much so that he pretty much disowned it and publicly slated Wong Jin after its release
