During filming, Keith Vitali accidentally kicked Jackie Chan in the throat after numerous takes for a particular fight scene. When Keith hit Jackie, he realized the danger of the situation and broke character by concern for Jackie's health. By doing this, Keith was yelled at by the entire crew as he was supposed to wait for the director to yell cut no matter what had happened in the scene. See more »

Of all the 3 brothers' films, this is the one more than any other that I've managed to turn people onto Jackie Chan with (yes, more than Project A!).
A well plotted, decently paced movie with some absolutely genuine comedy moments, and as for the action, oh the action... people have already commented on the incredible sequence between Jackie and Benny Urquidez, but that's not all, the film is packed with some truly dazzling acrobatics.
Fantastic fun, and a worthy introduction for any Jackie Chan newbies.
