Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, July 10, 1997 AA1 [] [] "First Strike," frenzy stunts by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer Jackie Chan is a super hero like no other, and "First Jackie is not better at the martial arts, he is just faster. If Strike" is an action flick, almost like no other. The whole this had been aWarner Brothers Cartoon, Chan would have purpose of this film appears to be an attempt to cram as been played by Speedy Gonzales. He moves through his many action sequences as possible into 87 minutes of stunts like a cheetah with a tiger in its tank. celluloid. "First Strike" is rated PG- 13 due to all the carnage that is used for back-drop. Chan does all of his own stunts, which saves on the cost of a double, but must run the studio a fortune in vitamins. With the films purpose being action and more action what there isn't much of is a story line. There is a vague script about a spy and atomic weapons being sold and the Russian mafia, and a love interest. But all the character are one dimensional. The good guys are all good, the "bad" good are just rotten, the counterspy only seems to be at the counter he is presently spying on, and the love interest doesn't love. Her most contact with hero Chan is when she kicks him in the shins. If you want action, rent "First Strike," if you want story and plot rent "The Crucible." Grumpy's video has both. Of course this film is not rented because of its Nobel prize- winning writers, it is rented for action and there is plenty of that. A rule for enjoyment on a Jackie Chan film is don't take any of it seriously. There are spoof of the James Bond flicks as well as the "Kung-Fu" types.
