Never a dull moment in this film with the action happening right from the beginning. The fight sequences are probably the best I have ever seen - and I've seen a fair few! Chan is completely convincing as a kung-fu master, he is incredible.
Take the opening sequence alone for example - Jackie showing of his skills with various weapons - absolutely amazing, it surely must have taken ages to produce, and more than a dozen band-aids.
As for the rest of the film, see it for yourself, the characters may be strange, the dubbing hilarious (adds to the charm) but if you like a good kung fu flick with action on overload, starring the greatest (in my opinion) martial artist movie-star of all time, then this simply must not be missed.
