Bleeding Steel Trailer

Jackie Chan Shows He’s Still Got Some Moves in “Bleeding Steel” Trailer

Jackie Chan, action icon and Academy Award winner, looked like he was moving into Older Liam Neeson territory with last year's The Foreigner. But in the new trailer for Bleeding Steel, set in his native Hong Kong, Chan looks like he's not done doing gravity-defying stunts and kicking some serious butt.

Though it has a more sci-fi bent – including spaceships, technologically advanced organs and extreme weapons – Bleeding Steel looks like it's not far outside Chan's wheelhouse. He plays Lin Dong, a cop who let an informant get killed, and now seeks to protect the man's daughter, who has an artificial heart.

But an ex-super soldier (Callan Mulvey) and his accomplice (Tess Haubrich) have their sights set on the girl too. So Lin will defend her any way he can, including car chases, shootouts and hanging off the side of a building.

Bleeding Steel hits theaters and on-demand on Friday, July 6.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
