VERY under-appreciated!
8 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are like me, a Jackie Chan fanboy, then you will love this movie.

It has been sitting on my shelf for a while now and I have only chosen other movies to watch in my spare time due to the shockingly low rating it has received here.

What a fool I was. this movie is just as good as the likes of Snake and Crane or Shaolin Wooden Men and is only slightly less entertaining than the great Fearless Hyena.

Ignore the reviews that rate this film so low. They are obviously written by the small unfortunate portion of Jackie's fanbase that consider the Rush Hour trilogy as his biggest achievement.

If you consider yourself a true Jackie Chan fan, you will not be disappointed with this film.
