There are few movie stars who can combine comedy and action as smoothly as Jackie Chan. What makes him so good at what he does? Detailed attention to lot of a lot of things you never consciously notice in a movie. Every frame is planned, choreographed, and edited just so. In this fascinating video from the series Every Frame a Painting, Tony Zhou explains those details. While he does, we get to see Chan fight his way through four decades of movies. Particularly interesting is the difference between his Hong Kong films and his American movies, where he doesn’t have as much control over the finished product. -via Laughing Squid
