Another war tinged mystery involving that favorite Hollywood target the Panama Canal.
One of the better Chan films, this film works because it has a great deal going on. There is more here than the just the a murder mystery, there are political implications that help to flesh out the tale. Also helping things along is the large number of colorful characters that Charlie and his son Jimmie come in contact with. These are a bit more than your stock mystery suspects and it really elevates everything that is going on. This doesn't seem like a stock off the rack mystery but something new and exciting.
I really like this film and its one of the better films.
