The film was the first time that the authentic voice of Jackie Chan was heard in a motion picture. All of Chan's prior Hong Kong films had featured traditional dubbing of his voice for both Cantonese and Mandarin releases. As a matter of fact, he wouldn't dub his own voice in a Hong Kong feature before Police Story 3: Supercop (1992). See more »
Though the film is set in the 1930's, modern railroad freight cars not introduced until the 1970's are seen behind Jackie early into the film. See more »
Jackie Chan's first movie for the U.S. was good but failed business wise due to a flawed marketing campaign. However, the film had it's good bits. Jackie looked rather silly during the gangster fighting scenes. This was the director's fault. Jackie made an effort to act but the other actors didn't, besides that the film was quite entertaining and so was the fight scenes but they are quite slow.
