In Germany this movie is known as part 2 of the 'Powerman' trilogy with Kuai can che (1984) being part 1 and Long de xin (1985) being part 3. Fuk sing go jiu (1985) ('Tokyo Powerman' in Germany) is not part of this imaginary series. Despite the fact that the movies share many of their main and supporting actors as well as staff members the characters and story lines are totally unrelated. See more »
When Muscles drives away in a car, the whole filming crew is visible in the cars backdoor window. See more »
The script is totally incoherent (something about a letter that could expose a criminal organization... don't even bother to think about it), and most of the comedy is lame, but the action is fast and exhilarating. Jackie has a small part and barely any dialogue in this one; I also would have liked to see more of the gifted Yuen Biao, who has a way of making even the most amazing stunts seem effortless. Sammo Hung gets the lion's share of the fighting, and at the end he is pitted against Richard Norton, one of the most worthy villains of Jackie Chan movies. I give "Twinkle" * for the comedy and *** for the action, so the average is **.
