Gorgeous    (1999)
What do you look for in a Hong Kong movie? Typically, the first answer most would say is action! Well, with that in mind, a wonderful movie that came out in 1999 was overlooked by too many. Not only did it have action, it also had loads of comedy. Gorgeous, starring Jackie Chan is slick. Chan stars as a Hong Kong millionaire who meets and falls in love with a young country girl while trying to outwit his best friend and rival. Shu Qi is a wee bit young for Chan, but their chemistry and her charm can almost make you forget that and it should definitely not keep you from seeing this fun film. Tony Leung stars as your stereotypical gay guy, but he keeps the character from becoming just a joke. Of course, I mustnt leave out the fight scenes. Chan may be getting a little long in the tooth, but he can still definitely pull it off. Hes fast, hes exciting and he provides enough comic relief to make your "I dont like action movies" friend see what shes been missing out on.
