10 Questions for Jackie Chan

Time magazine has an interview with about his new film . The film deals with illegal immigrants living in . Chan was asked what message he wanted to send with the movie:

We want to send out a message to our people from China, from Indonesia, from Malaysia: no country is like home. When you’re in Japan, when you’re in America, you’re nobody. I play a nobody in Japan. Somehow all the temptations keep coming and you can’t fight them. If we can send out a message that nobody should escape from a boat illegally to Japan or even Australia or America, that you should just stay where you are, then that’s a good message.
