The man does all of his stunts. It's ridiculous how fearless he is, look at some of these:
I'd say the individuals who Free Solo climb. They go up mountains without any safety devices whatsoever. One slip and its all over
Jackie jumps from rooftops to rooftops with no safety devices, he jumps from buildings on to moving helicopters over cities with NO SAFTEY DEVICES. He also does them more than once to make sure its perfect.
Definitely on of the best ever.
Like the voice in the clip said, "Jackie Chan is the KING of action heroes!!"
Fuck ya he is one of the greatest ever.
The video where he trained a catfish to do tricks proves it. A true bad ass mother fucker.
Decent comparison, though I'd say what Chan did was quite a bit more dangerous, since he was doing things closer to his own limits than what most solo climbers do.
I figured. I know the majority of free solo climbers get into the zone and are easily able to do what they do with minimal error.
I've seen some bloopers of Jackies and damn he has fucked up a few times and injured himself
That's the best part of his movies imo, and I love his movies. Holy shit that poor dude takes a beating.
Sorry I agree with the previous poster. When performing most stunts if you screw up you get injured, in rock or mountain climbing a mistake is almost guarenteed death. I'd also say the guys on Jackass are probably just as if not more fearless then Jackie Chan. Not to dog on the guy it's just the fearless man on the planet are pretty big shoes to fill.
some would say the fear of paralysis is greater than the fear of death...
He actually did fuck his knee/ankle up pretty bad near the end of Rumble in the Bronx in the hovercraft scene and just kept trucking after they put the brace on.
I don't believe for a second he does the stunts without safety devices. There are nets involved if nothing else, I doubt his life has ever been in danger.
A movie star the most fearless?
Not to insult Jackie Chan but I think real fighters are more fearless, especially these guys:

The second time, His grip on the branch slipped and he fell 40 feet to the ground below and landed hard on his head causing part of his skull to crack and shoot up into his brain.

Yes, he is. It's scientifically proven.
Then you clearly know nothing about him, nor the differences between American and HK stuntmen lol.
A lot of his stunts are shot in one long take, explicitly to show that there are no protective nets or gear being used. His injuries have also been thoroughly documented, as one poster has already listed. He has nearly died several times in performing his stunts.
Jackie Chan is the don
In terms of Hollywood sure.
In real life I would put Special Op guys and people who go undercover in the police and CIA types to be more fearless
Separate names with a comma.
