Trivia

There have been many rumors as to what happened during the filming of the big fight scene with Jackie Chan and Benny Urquidez, ranging from the film makers threatening to fire Urquidez for hitting Jackie too hard or that the two actors did not get along. While they were somewhat competitive during rehearsals and filming for the fight, they respected each other and at the end of filming gave each other a big hug.

Goofs

When Jackie and the others are chased by the gangsters, they hit the cars with their rear bumper, the bumpers deform. Then in the next shot, the bumpers are okay again. See more »

Fun and excitement in Spain with the 3 Brothers
8 September 2003 | by (Wilton, NH) – See all my reviews

I first heard of this when TNT was showing it after the TV premiere of Rumble In The Bronx. I couldn't make it through the first 10 minutes because of the bad dubbing and the mixing around of scenes (The very first scene was Jackie and Yuen skateboarding in Spain, rather than them waking up and getting into their morning routine). A couple of months ago, I got the Hong Kong DVD and loved it.

The movie is about Thomas (Chan) and David (Biao), two Chinese guys who run a successful food truck business in Spain. They get caught up in wannabe detective Moby's (Hung) case to find a Spanish heiress, and the fun goes from there. The chemistry is great between the three brothers, and Lola Forner is a great distraction. The writing is funny, and Sammo's direction is right on target. The fight scenes are great. If you want to watch vintage Jackie, watch this film as he can move quick. The much talked about fight between Chan and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez does not disappoint. Want a lesson in how to do a fight scene? Watch these two guys go at it (They would have a rematch a few years later in Dragons Forever).

For all of you fans of JC credit outtakes, there is none (JC didn't start using them until Police Story). But in a funny, action packed movie like this, you won't care. It is one of The 3 Brothers best, and it will leave you wanting more.
