I’ll admit, I love a good Jackie Chan movie. I think he is one of the only artists who can make Kung-Fu funny and painful at the same time.

While this sequence (starting at about 3:15) is photo-specific, Jackie has a very unique style. Every Frame a Painting does a complete analysis on Jackie’s style which is worth watching if you want to get into action movie photography:
