Trivia

This film was originally intended to be the highest-budgeted martial arts/Hong Kong-made film of all time and was to have a wide international release, including in the US. However, when the film's intended star Bruce Lee died suddenly, the film's budget was significantly scaled back and it was given a limited release, which did not include the US. George Lazenby had signed on for the part before Lee died and when the film was still to be a high-budgeted international release. See more »

Probably better if you're stoned...
6 June 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews



As a fan of bad movies (and MST3K, and a member of MFT3K), I must say I've seen my share of them. But geez! Even the worst I've seen at least had a soundtrack. As George Lazenby stiffly wanders around Hong Kong, doing who knows what, you can guarantee that you won't be distracted by any of that background music that fills todays cinema. Or any of that music that fills elevators. I don't think anyone in this film even hums.

Now, this isn't entirely true -- there *is* a sound track. if you listen closely, you will hear it chime in about a half-dozen times through the course of the film. Of course, the timing will be entirely inappropriate, and it doesn't last very long, but something that could be classified as "music" does occur. Your best bet, though, is to sit your toddler armed with a wooden spoon down in front of the TV with a collection of pots and pans while you watch. The rhythm and flow would be better than anything the film offers.

Keep an eye out for Sammo Hung as a minor villian in this film. Aren't we all glad he found Jackie Chan to work with?
