The Tuxedoed Guy's real name is "Yu Jin Xiang" (Tulip), and his entrance theme is also that of "Chor Lauheung" (1979) ("Chu Liu Xiang" in Mandarin), a martial arts soap that Adam Cheng was starring in at the time. Given he played a suave swordsman with an eye for women in the latter, he was associated with these Bond-like characters for a while. His role as "Tuxedo Man" is a riff on that. See more »
Early, when Capt. Don Wen is offering Billy the job, he says "Old Sun's in... There's money in it." Billy's response is "If Old Sun and Lightnin' are in, there must be money in it. Count me in, too." Capt. Wen never mentions Greased Lightning previously, meaning Billy is replying with information he couldn't possibly know. See more »
My God. I don't really know what to say.. I expected your usual old-school Chan flick. Not even Close. It's a movie about a bunch of goofy characters on a mission to save some people.. I think. Either way, it is TOTAL fantasy with that strange slapsticky Asian comedy that us westerners just don't quite get. Totally off the hook, and here's the clincher. Jackie isn't even a main character! Just an old movie he did as a favor for Jimmy Wang Yu (I think) repackaged under Jackie's name for obvious reasons (moolah).
Definitely one of the strangest movies I have ever seen.
