Known for his humorous acrobatic fighting style, Jackie Chan has worked on 200+ films during his career. Jackie got his start in the entertainment industry as a child actor and stuntman. But by the age of 15, he had his first writing credit. By 19, he got his first opportunity to be the Action Director. In the years that followed, not only was he acting, and doing stunt work but producing, writing, directing, choreographing fight scenes and even singing in many of his films. Here’s a chronological list of Jackie Chan movies.

How Jackie Chan Got His Nickname

In the list of films below, you will see Jackie credited with a variety of names. Jackie Chan’s real name is Chan Kong-Sang. Early in his career, Jackie experimented with several different movie credit names including Yuen Lau, Chen Yuan-Lung, Chen Lung and Chen Hsin. But it was in between acting jobs where he finally found a name he liked. After Bruce Lee‘s death in 1973, the booming Hong Kong film industry collapsed. Many actors, including Jackie, struggled to find film work and looked elsewhere. In the mid-1970s, Jackie briefly worked for a construction worker named Jack. On the construction site, the pair were nicknamed “Big Jack” and “Little Jack”. Jackie shortened the name Little Jack Chan to “Jackie Chan” and the name stuck with him the rest of his career.
