|It happened in 'Armor of God' (1987) : without doubt it's probably the absolute worst injury Jackie Chan had ever endured as a result of his work in films. What was it?||Jackie Chan's Broken Bones
a brain hemorrhage. Ironically, it was an easy stunt that he'd performed many times before that caused his most life threatening injury. In the stunt, he was to jump from a wall to a tree below him. He performed it once but was not satisfied. So, he tried again. On the second jump he missed the branch he was going for and landed head first on the rocks below. A piece of his skull cracked and shot up into his brain. Blood began to pour from his ears. He was immediately rushed to a hospital and underwent emergency brain surgery. He eventually had a full recovery but to this day has a permanent hole in his head that is now filled with a plastic plug.
hearing & sight. Although all of his senses have probably been somewhat hampered, the two that have been medically diagnosed as hampered are hearing and sight. During 'Drunken Master' (1978), Jackie's injury to his brow ridge was so severe that he nearly lost an eye. Even worse, a fall in the film 'Armour of God' (1987) left him with permanent partial hearing loss in one ear.
he nearly suffocated. One of Jackie's many brushes with death, during the filming he sustained a throat injury that made it difficult for him to breathe and he nearly suffocated. This is one of the many injuries that has made him uninsurable. It is also one of the reasons that in the United States there are many restrictions on the stunts that Jackie is allowed to perform.
two broken legs. Jackie had a major setback during the filming of 'Crime Story'. Unlike some of his other injuries in which he could continue on undaunted, this time he crushed both of his legs when he was caught between two cars. It was one of the most serious injuries of his career.
|In which film can you see Jackie's honest reaction to his arm literally being sliced open by a real sword, that was mistaken for one with a blunt edge?||Jackie Chan's Broken Bones
'Snake in the Eagle's Shadow' (1978). While shooting a fight scene in 'Snake in the Eagle's Shadow', Jackie's arm was slashed so severely that blood gushed everywhere. Jackie fell down screaming in pain. Unbelievably, the camera continued to roll and caught it all on film. When one watches the film now, the reaction they see is the result of that interaction and is in fact, Jackie's genuine reaction to his injury.
|It happened during the filming of 'City Hunter' (1993): to what did Jackie attribute the worst knee injury he had ever sustained?||Jackie Chan's Broken Bones
a skateboard. Although he has suffered more knee injuries than he can count, Jackie says his worst knee injury was suffered as a result of this stunt he was performing in the film 'City Hunter'. During one of the opening scenes of the film, Jackie has a long sequence that features a wild ride on a skateboard through a plate of glass several floors up. It was this scene that caused the knee injury. During this film Jackie also dislocated his shoulder.
a hovercraft. Jacking jumped from a bridge onto a hovercraft. As he turned his body to avoid smacking into a wall, his ankle remained planted causing it to break in two places. Doctors instructed him to remain off of the injury until it was healed. True to Jackie form, he decided finishing the movie was more important than letting his body mend. So he went back to the set and put a sock on his broken foot, painted to look like a sneaker and finished filming.
dislocated cheekbone. Jackie proclaimed, "I didn't even know you could DO that!" about the injury. As injuries go, this was one of his more minor ones. Unlike many others, he was able to continue working with very little interruption. Other dislocated body parts on Jackie: pelvis, sternum, shoulder & neck.
