It has Jackie Chan. It was an incredible and amazing film. It’s hard to describe with words and I would suggest for you to just watch it. Even though there are fighting scenes none of them include blood or anything gory.
Personally, I always enjoyed the movies that Jackie Chan played in as the movies he acted in were never serious or intense yet you can still learn a lot in the most funniest ways. Kung Fu Yoga teaches you a lot about the history of China and India and it even explains it in a very understandable and funny way. Jackie Chan acts as one of the best archaeologists in China.
The movie then brings you from a cave exploration looking for a treasure with the Indian Princess to a bunch of the professor’s (Jackie Chan) students being trapped by female hyenas. The ending included Jackie Chan and the other actors and actresses dancing in one of Jaipur’s underground golden ‘palaces’ filled with boxes of scrolls. They even included the whole cast plus the people who helped in the filmmaking to dance Indian style. The movie gives you a lot of thought to it and helps you to understand different perspectives and I hope you enjoy it!
Captain Fantastic is a movie about a family being isolated from all society, by their parents, living deep in the wilderness. While the father, Ben Cash (Viggo Mortensen) raise their children, teaching them self-defence, educating them himself through homeschooling, teaching them how to hunt and survive and “training them to be physically fit and athletic, guiding them in the wild without technology and demonstrating the beauty of co-existing with nature”, his wife, Leslie, dies.
When the news of their mother’s death reach the kids, through Ben, everyone was sort of ‘struggling’ to cope at the start. And, the father of Leslie even threatened Ben that if he ever decides to go to the funeral, he will arrest Ben. The five kids keep pushing their way and pleading to their father to let them ‘rescue’ their mom. When Ben finally agrees on letting them, they must survive the real world, society. The kids are disgusted by the people asking why everyone is so fat and questioning the attitude of society. While all of them rode in their bus heading for the funeral, they encounter so many things like their first time in a restaurant, one of the children asked what “cola” was and got the response of “poison water” from the father. As Ben started noticing everyone started to feel sad, he made everyone celebrate Noam Chomsky day to cheer up.
My favorite scene was when they were camping out in Ben’s sister’s house, the true potential from homeschooling was shown in the youngest as he explained to his cousins about the Bill of Rights in his own words leaving them flabbergasted and annoyed at the same time. The ending was happy but the very last scene was dragging just by a bit. I would really suggest watching it.
