Kung Fu Angarano

03.23.2007
Basically this is the gist, a new martial arts epic (written by John Fusco) is coming up featuring Jet Li (KISS OF THE DRAGON) and Jackie Chan (RUSH HOUR), who nowadays are pretty much as good as you can get when you're casting a kung fu movie. I know a lot of people like Tony Jaa, but I don't think he's anywhere near Jet Li's level yet.

Anyway, that said, the good news about this so far untitled movie ends about there. Because now I'm forced to talk about a) the plot, b) which actor just got cast in the film and c) my comments.

A) A troubled 17 year old wannabe kung fu warrior has his ass handed to him by a street gang and then is sent back in time to ancient China, where he has to see free the imprisoned Monkey King (Li).

B) Michael Angarano. Opposite these two titans of martial arts, we've got the kid who hides under the table in SKY HIGH. And this guy's supposed to save Jet Li.

C) I believe no comments are necessary.
Extra Tidbit: Angarano was actually one of the finalists to play Anakin Skywalker in that sci-fi film from a couple of years ago...

WTF

Tony Jaa kicks Jet lee's ass any time. Jet lee is a true Kung Fu specialist but Tony Jaa has this raw and brutal power. This movie will suck. I'm gonna watch Ong Bak II instead!

see the ending now, he saves Li, all is well and good, he gets shipped back to modern day, that same street gang that beat him up the first meets up with him again, cept he uses the martial arts that Li taught him when he went to ancient China and whips all of their heads....the end.

As long as Chan and Li are THE stars, and not this kid, things will be fine.

Oy, why should I even WORRY about "the" stars of movies having smaller supporting roles nowadays? *thinks of IN THE LAND OF WOMEN with Meg Ryan and THE MUMMY 3 with Fraser & Weisz* Oh wait, that's right: because movie casting can suck donkey balls.
