“I have never changed. Same action [films]; no s-x, no violence, no F-words, same action films.  Also, the family audience has pushed children to go see my movies.  They push them to go to Blockbuster Video to get old Jackie Chan movies,” Chan said.

Chan also revealed that Asian parents do not restrict children from seeing his movies despite the action. Generally, the word ‘action’ in movies is associated with violence, and that worries most parents to let their kids watch action movies. “But for my action movies, they bring the kids to see it, they want the kids to see it.  They bring the kids to my office,” he said, that is the reason he is carefully making non-violent action movies.

Jackie said that Asian movies have fans around the world. Most of his action films have a global audience despite being regional. On being in Rush Hour, the Police Story star said that despite the global success of the film, it did not appeal to his family audience. 


“They watch Rush Hour and they don’t like it.  But they still support me.  So I have to make Asian film, and American films.  I have to let them know this is an Asian film and that’s an American film,” the Rush Hour star said.

However, Chan wants to slowly change his style or identity as an action star rather a star putting more energy into acting to have audiences like Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.
