    I haven’t seen Jackie Chan in forever, so I guess this film could be touted as his comeback film. The film trailer or hype surrounding it didn’t do much to build excitement for me, but hey Moviepass means I’m there to watch anything.

Having now seen A Ghost Story and letting it sink in I can say that I am very impressed by…
