Burn Hollywood Burn, An Alan Smithee Film (1997)
Jackie has a short cameo in this movie. This is a very odd
movie. This is not a Jackie Chan movie.
Eric Idle, of Monty Python Fame, plays Alan Smithee. Alan
Smithee just got done shooting a movie, Trio. Alan Smithee
absolutly hates the movie and wants nothing to do with it.
Normally if he hates the movie and wants no credit for it he could
change his credit to Alan Smithee, but that's his real name! Alan
Smithee is a generic name for a film the director wants nothing to
do with. This movie is about the story that unravels around the
events that took place because of the awful movie Trio. What's
the tie-in with Jackie Chan you might ask? Well Jackie is one of
the 3 actors in the movie Trio, along with Sylvester Stalone and
Fantasy Mission Force (1979)
This was a Jimmy Wang Yu obligation film. Jackie only did this
because he owed him a favor. Quite ridiculously done in every
If you want to see some better work with Jimmy Wang Yu then
look to The Killer Meteors, which is not much better
anyway. Or if you want to see the best of the 3 Jimmy Wang Yu
films then Check out Island of
Fire, not quite a masterpiece but a very good prison drama.
