Jackie Chan's First Strike
A hard-hitting gang has the numbers and weapons on its side. Jackie Chan (Rush Hour) has what's within his reach: a ladder. It will do. Chan's amazingly inventive and widely famed deployment of a ladder as a weapon (he also uses a broom, stilts, a chair, a shark and anything else that's handy during the film) is a highlight among highlights in this rollicking action/comedy in which he's called upon to recover a stolen warhead component. The adventure whisks our hero from high-rise Hong Kong to the snowy Ukraine to sunny Brisbane - and he plunges into it all with wall-to-wall kickbutt joy. Settle in and watch as Chan and a ladder lift the martial arts to new heights of fun.
