Chan's the man
30 June 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Chan's directorial debut is a surprisingly assured piece of work, easily confirming why Chan is the most talented superstar in the world today. As you'd expect, the fight sequences are breathtaking to watch, amazingly inventive and beautifully choreographed. Similarly, the joky historical story is typical Chan: he plays a blundering fool out to find his brother who has turned to the dark side. Mistaken identity mishaps ensue. The film concludes with a gobsmacking TWELVE MINUTE one-on-one fight sequence: totally unheard of in Hollywood, yet in Chan's hands it it totally watchable and works very well. Yet another hit from the Jackie Chan fun factory.
