Jackie Chan created his own fighting style, combining breakneck acrobatics with comedy, distancing himself from the ruthless seriousness of Bruce Lee. However, over the course of his career, Jackie Chan has also repeatedly taken on roles in which the humor was deliberately left out, in order to show that he is not just an athletic punchy clown, but also a serious actor.
In » The Foreigner » by Martin Campbell («James Bond — Casino Royale»), which celebrates its free TV premiere on May 23, 2022 from 10:15 p.m. on ZDF, Jackie Chan shows his serious side and takes it with terrorists who completely destroyed his life. The action thriller will not only be broadcast in its entirety, but also without commercial breaks. If you prefer to see the film in the original English version, you can grab the Blu-ray or DVD, which you can get from Amazon, for example:
