Jackie Chan in truly scenic action spectacular
Jackie Chan’s latest action starrer, “Skiptrace,” is getting good grosses internationally, even trouncing some big US blockbusters.
In his 150th big-screen outing, Chan plays a veteran detective who’s after a big crime lord and also clashes with an American gambler (Johnny Knoxville). Their series of adrenaline-pumping confrontations takes them from Hong Kong, Macau, Mongolia, the Gobi Desert, the Yellow River, to Russia. This makes “Skiptrace,” excitingly directed by Renny Harlin, a truly scenic action spectacular! The Viva and MVP Entertainment release opens locally on Aug. 10.
