The latest Jackie Chan news suggests that the Chinese superstar's latest movie, "Kung Fu Yoga," might just be a disappointment.
According to one review, the action-adventure-comedy film lacks the elements that might have made it entertaining.
The 62-year-old Hollywood actor portrays the role of a famous archaeology professor named Jack. He works with an Indian professor Ashmita (Disha Patani) from the National Museum Institute. They work side by side at the Terracotta Warriors Museum in Xi'an.

Tanul Thakur of The Wire wrote in his review of Jackie Chan's new movie "Kung Fu Yoga" that it is "formulaic and predictable, and tries a little too hard to be funny."
As the film started by declaring that it was done for entertainment, Thakur noted that it is instead "a litany of lame jokes, a case against sleeping pills, a testament to human stupidity - but entertainment it is not."
The writer further pointed out that the use of physical comedy in Jackie Chan's "Kung Fu Yoga" appeared to be "forced." He said that in a number of scenes where such approach in comedy was used, it was "embarrassing."
However, the 107-minute film seemed to have won the heart of John Defore of The Hollywood Reporter.
He revealed that "Pairing old-school Chan action with a globe-trotting archaeology mission, 'Kung-Fu Yoga' scratches fans' itch for no-nonsense, no-pretense Chan fare - in which he isn't second-banana to a Western star, or married to a director who thinks VFX are required to make Chan's stunts more impressive."
