    If it wasnt for Sonny Chiba, you probally wouldnt have heard of Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan. He is the original Kung Fu star. Do some research & you might learn something.

    Maybe when he acts in english (obviously not his first language). But in cantonese he's a great actor. Just watch the young master in cantonese when he pours his heart out to his teacher and you'll see he CAN act.

    Jet Li is the best martial artist in real life, talentwise he is pretty good but nothing special, film choice wise he bums.

    Second tht vote... and we're talking about GOOD ACTORS here... no talking about who can do better AMERICAN movies.

    Heck 80% of JACKIE CHAN movies are better than most of the crap that comes out... like SWAT... BAD BOYS or CRADLE TO THE GRAVE.

    Laslty... he makes wholesome movies that while the entire family can enjoy has amazing fighting choregraphy... which uptil now I've never seen in any movie other than MATRIX n DRIVE.

    That's definitely one thing Chan has done better than any other MA is making movies a family can enjoy.

    Really? Man, I'd always heard he was an amature who faked his way through looking like a martial artist onscreen.

    He was also a celebrity bodyguard. I can't remember who he was guarding at the time, but they suggested he go into movies. The rest, as they say is history.
