    I say yes. Come at me bro!





    To be considered, an actor has to do his own stunts. So if you think there's someone else out there whom should be considered, then let us know.

    A Chinese man who's loyal to his home country of China.

    Imagine that!

    Has he actually SAID anything directly negative about this country that isn't based on someone's assumed interpretation of what he actually means?

    He's said America is the most corrupt country in the world.

    And how does this take away from him being the greatest stunt actor of all time?

    You asked a question. I answered. I'm not sure why you're inferring my answer is anything beyond an answer to your question.

    I'm not. I'm further asking you how his opinion takes away from him being the greatest stunt actor of all time.

    I like him.

    MY teenage son loves the Rush Hour movies. We can microwave some popcorn, sit back and enjoy. Pure escape. Nice father and son escape. Also, schooled him on the Blues Bros, Princess Bride and have to do other movies on the QT. My wife’s limit for language is way below mine and I try to respect that.

    You're being an idiot who can't read his own thread.

    You asked
    I replied with a direct answer to your question. I didn't give my opinion about anyone until just now.

    I read it just fine. You apparently can't read the question I very specifically asked you....for the third time now: how does his opinion take away from his work as a stunt actor?

    I'm tired of everybody looking at a person's political or social opinions on this forum instead of looking at accomplishments. He's not exactly Jane Fonda or Meryl Streep here. Forgive me for expecting people to act like adults and stick to the topic at hand.

    You're upset that he called the US corrupt? Hello? Have you seen our government lately? It's not exactly China or North Korea, but it's pretty damned bad.

    Jackie Robinson didn't like white people. Doesn't make him any less an accomplished baseball player though.

    Ali spoke ill of the US during Vietnam and was a Muslim. Didn't stop him from becoming one of the top 2 or 3 greatest boxers of all time.

    I thought we on the side of Gun Rights were supposed to be the mature, level-headed folks in this world. The ones who put aside emotions and focus on facts. It sure seems to me that a person would be very insecure with their lives if all they focused on was another person's opinions about politics and social issues.

    Some of you need to grow up and start showing us that we are indeed who we believe ourselves to be, and not a bunch of snowflakes who can't handle other people's opinions about life.

    And it’s not? I don’t think most corrupt, but we are now rotten to the core. Trump is showing true colors now.

    And yes, even if he is full on communist, he is the greatest stunt man ever, bar none.

    Isn't that the American Way? Just in it for the money?

    The fact Jackie has done the types of stunts he has done, for as long as he has done them, without green screen, makes him the one of the best. No one makes action movies anymore, just cartoons.

    I think it's more accurate to say he is a patriotic citizen of his own country - China.

    Can't really blame a person for being loyal to their own nation.
