Jackie Chan To Retire From Action Movies

Jackie Chan

At Cannes, Jackie Chan has announced his retirement as an action star, saying he is too old for stunts and the world is “too violent”.

Senh: Jackie Chan seems to say this every year. His recent outings - "Shinjuku Incident," "Little Big Soldier," "1911" - have already been low in action.
