The Best Jackie Chan Movies of All Time

Voting Rules
Vote for your favorite Jackie Chan movies, regardless of critic reviews or how big the role was.

Here a list of the best Jackie Chan movies, ranked best to worst with trailers when available. Kung fu fans will also enjoy the best martial arts movies of all time and the best kung fu films streaming on Netflix. To date Jackie Chan has appeared in over 100 films, starting with Big and Little Wong Tin Bar in 1962. A juggernaut in the world of action and martial arts, Chan incredibly has performed all his own stunts in his films without once using a body double. Jackie Chan's highest grossing movies have received a lot of accolades (sort of) over the years, earning millions upon millions around the world. The order of these top Jackie Chan movies is decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated, likely action-packed and probably-should-be-subtitled selections from the Jackie Chan filmography will be at the top of the list.

If you think the best Jackie Chan role isn't at the top, then upvote (get ranking!) it so it has the chance to become number one. The greatest Jackie Chan performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand. Examples of films on the list include modern blockbusters like Rush Hour, and older productions like Drunken Master.

This list answers the questions: "What are the best Jackie Chan movies?" and "What are the greatest Jackie Chan roles of all time?" If you love Jackie, then check out the best Jet Li movies or the best Steven Seagal movies here on Ranker as well.
