Zodiac Movie Review
This Chinese-Hong Kong action film is produced, written, directed by, and starring Jackie Chan. CZ12 (Chinese: 十二生肖), also known as Chinese Zodiac, is a pseudo-reboot of a film franchise that began with Armour of God (1987) and its sequel, Armour of God II: Operation Condor. Definitely one of JC's best movie ever and probably his last major feature. He put everything he had and all his heart in it like it's a parting present, just don't focus too much on the story and the acting and enjoy. It brings classic Chan back! More like Mission: Impossible in the beginning and a bit too Hollywood in the end, but in the middle you get what you've paid for - Armour of God III. If you're a fan of Chan's work, this one is not to be missed. I have terribly underestimated the Chinese films. Whenever it comes to visuals, I thought that Indian films and Chinese were equal. The visuals in most of the Indian films are pitiable and extremely bad, but Chinese Zodiac changed my perspective about Chinese films. This film had better visuals than most of the recent Hollywood films that I have seen, like Man of Steel and The Wolverine. This film follows the adventures of the character played by Chan in the Armour of God series. Amazing stunts, Jackie chan comedy, What else can you ask for. Story is weak but you can watch it for the sheer number of crazy stunts and fight sequences. Had fun watching this.
