It's been a little while since we truly enjoyed a new Jackie Chan movie, and the trailer for Kung-Fu Yoga doesn't really suggest that run of bad form will end any time soon. However, we did find ourselves laughing at the comedy lion so, you know, it's a start. Kung-Fu Yoga doesn't exactly break the mould, this new trailer comes complete with car chases, ludicrous stunts, good CGI, bad CGI and lots of hysterical over-acting. Pretty standard stuff then. Directed by Stanley Tong (The Myth), Kung-Fu Yoga is due out January 28 in China.
Synopsis: Chinese archaeology professor Jack (Jackie Chan) teams up with beautiful Indian professor Ashmita and assistant Kyra to locate lost Magadha treasure. In a Tibetan ice cave, they find the remains of the royal army that had vanished together with the treasure, only to be ambushed by Randall (Sonu Sood), the descendant of a rebel army leader. When they free themselves, their next stop is Dubai where a diamond from the ice cave is to be auctioned. After a series of double-crosses and revelations about their past, Jack and his team travel to a mountain temple in India, using the diamond as a key to unlock the real treasure.
