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 »

Quotes

This movie is great!
22 November 1998 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

One of the most hilarious HK films ever! Our heroes must rescue American commander Abraham Lincoln from the Japanese Nazis based in Europe during WWII, because Agent 007 was busy, The Bald Detective had defected to the enemy, Snake Plissken had been dead for three years, Rocky (yes, that Rocky) wouldn't be suitable for a military action, and Captain Black Fox (Brigette Lin in another movie that I haven't seen, Golden Queen Commando, I think) had retired to raise a family. And along the way our heroes have to battle amazons and hopping vampires! How can you beat that? This film tends not to be liked by the Jackie Chan purists (he actually doesn't star in the film) but it's one I love.
