a real crime story!!!
- The Shinjuku Incident review by CP Customer
when first heard about it - banned in china is what one magazine said - dont know if this is true, but easy to see why. Jackie chan disrobe's his 'mr nice guy' image for something more gritty and in some respects shocking, to see the Jackie go against type casting... and its all the more better for it.
the film hasnt much of the action you may find in most of his films, but it does rack up a lot of tension. Film fans may see the movie may magpie from other movies (casino/carlitto's way/scarface) the film in some respect reminded me of Nick Bloomfields amazing doc 'ghosts' which also deals with the subject of Immegration.
All in all, a brave move from Jackie, maybe even braver than some of the stunts he has done in lesser years... to be cast in such a ''dark'' role.
Fans may not enjoy the fact that some of the action trade marks arnt in the script, but I for one was happy to see Jackie cast along side other great actors... than arnt just Chris Tucker!!
very impressive indeed
