For nearly a decade, Liam Neeson has dominated the market on older actors still kicking ass onscreen. Others have tried, including Sean Penn (The Gunman) and John Travolta (From Paris with Love), but none have had near the success.
But now, Jackie Chan – excuse me, Academy Award winner Jackie Chan – will attempt to take it on, and it looks like he'll have a better go of it. Even if he may not be as spry as the jaw-dropping acrobat who gave us The Legend of Drunken Master 2 and Police Story, he's still able to throw down.
Chan plays Quan, who leaps into action to hunt down the terrorists who killed his daughter (and many others) in a bombing. Pierce Brosnan plays the shady politician who refuses to help Quan in his quest for vengeance.
Directed by Martin Campbell, who made two of the best recent James Bond movies (GoldenEye and Casino Royale), The Foreigner opens on October 13.
