Isn’t about time we had some crazy Jackie Chan action thriller? Fear not, next month CineAsia will deliver that promise with Vanguard a return the action legend’s unique action comedy style. As well as reuniting with an familiar face behind the camera, Stanley Tong(Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop, Supercop 2 and First Strike).
The film tells the story of Covert security company Vanguard is the last hope of survival for an accountant(Chan) after he is targeted by the world’s deadliest mercenary organisation.
You wonder how long Jackie Chan can pull off these insane action scenes as he’s no whippersnapper. Brainless, over the top fun ride, explosive indeed! CineAsia have released the film’s UK Trailer, watch it below!
Marking the latest collaboration between acclaimed Hong Kong director Stanley Tong (The Myth, Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop) and action legend Jackie Chan (The Foreigner, Police Story, Rush Hour), Vanguard is a wild globetrotting adventure and a throwback to the days of gloriously over-the-top action cinema.
When a client of the international “Vanguard” security agency is kidnapped during Chinatown’s famous Lunar celebrations in London, this elite team (led by Chan) is sent to the rescue, taking them on a wildly ambitious mission all over the world. The adventure takes them from the rivers of Africa, to a heavily guarded fort in India, and an exhilarating car chase in Dubai, all the while unravelling a global conspiracy.
Vanguard boasts stunning action choreography, amazing stunts and the brand of fast-paced action-comedy that made Jackie Chan a global star.
CineAsia presents Vanguard in Selected Cinemas and On Demand 8th January and Blu-ray & DVD 11th January 2021. Off course that limited cinema release is subject to local lockdown restrictions.
