Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Best/Worst Movie I've Ever Seen!
28 February 2001 | by (N. Idaho, USA) – See all my reviews

I bought this yesterday and have watched it three times already. The editing is truly laughable. The dialog is bad too, but it seems that the film makers knew it and were just having a lot of fun. It is supposed to be WWII, and there are '70s muscle cars in it? Sick and wrong you say? Naah! They just wanted to play! Somebody gave the producers a bunch of money and explosives and they just took off with it and had a great old time! First they played at doing westerns, then did a Benny Hill skit, a bit of Sheena of the jungle, cut abruptly into a goofy horror movie, then ended with Mad Max. All during WWII? Hahahaha! I laugh, haha. Don't you naysayers get the joke? I mean really, Chinese guys playing Scotsmen with kilts? Asians in German Nazi SS uniforms? British general Robert Foster is Hispanic? They could have gotten caucasians for those parts if they'd wanted to. They chose not to on purpose, and that's excellent. It's what I like most about this movie; logical boundries aren't important. Time, place, and culture just get alllll messed up. If this movie had tried to be a serious action flick, then yes, it would be a failure. I think that when they made this film they achieved most everything that they had set out to do. It's successful, and not a flop. It's just very great in a very bad way.
