  3. All of Jackie Chan's Injuries. Dude is Amazing.
dragunreaver 8 years ago#1
Other than the brain hemorrhage Jackie suffered on Armour of God, He hit his head and injured it many times. Jackie was actually knocked completely unconscious while working as a stuntman on Hand of Death.

The Armour of God fall also left him hard-of-hearing in one ear.

On Drunken Master, his brow ridge was injured, and he nearly lost an eye.

Jackie actually broke his nose at least three times--on The Young Master, Project A, and, Mr. Nice Guy.

While making Supercop, Jackie dislocated a cheekbone. He didn't even know you could do that.

Hwang Jang Lee is a tremendous kicker, as Jackie found out when he kicked out one of Jackie’s teeth (accidentally) while they were making Snake in the Eagle's Shadow.

Jackie injured his chin on Dragon Lord. It was painful for him to even talk for a while. This made it hard for him to direct, not to mention act.

During The Young Master, Jackie was almost suffocated when he injured his throat.

Jackie has hurt his neck a lot, but his worst neck injuries happened during the clock-tower fall in Project A, and after he messed up a flip during Mr. Nice Guy.

Jackie dislocated his shoulder while making City Hunter.

During The Protector, Jackie hurt his hand and finger bones-adding injury to insult.

While Jackie was shooting a fight scene in Snake in the Eagle's Shadow, his arm was accidentally slashed by a sword that should have had a blunted edge. Blood went everywhere, and he fell down screaming with the camera still rolling! That's real pain you see in the movie!

On Armour of God II: Operation Condor, Jackie dislocated his sternum after falling from a hanging chain. That's another bone Jackie didn't know he could dislocate, but somehow he managed to do it.

Jackie has had a lot of back injuries while doing his movies, but the pole-slide scene in Police Story almost paralyzed him when he nearly broke the seventh and eighth vertebrae in his spine.

Also during the pole-slide stunt, Jackie dislocated his pelvis.

Jackie crushed his legs while shooting Crime Story, after getting caught between two cars.

Jackie has hurt his knees so often that he wonders whether there's even any cartilege left in them. (If you think he runs a little funny, that's part of the reason why.) It makes any stunt in which he has to jump harder, but he does his best anyway. Would you expect anything less? One of his worst injuries occurred during City Hunter, while he was shooting a skateboard chase.

Jackie broke his ankle while jumping onto a hovercraft in Rumble in the Bronx. After the bone was set and a cast was put on, Jackie was told to stay off his feet until it healed. But he had a movie to finish! He went back to the set and put a sock on his broken foot, painted to look like a sneaker.

He's a monster. Rumble in the Bronx is still tops in my book.
There is one key difference between truth and fiction...
Fiction has to make sense.

if we turned him bionic, he could conceivably take over the world or at the least actually kill John Conner
