Jackie Chan's hair grows between shots (see goofs). This is because before he made 'Long xiong hu di', his hair was always long, but he cut it for this film. However, after his accident, when he fell from a tree onto rocks nearly killing himself, he considered having long hair to be lucky and grew it again. See more »

This is Jackie's version of Indiana Jones. And you know what, I like this one better. It is also the film that nearly killed Jackie, even though the stunt he was doing was a fairly simple one. I really enjoy this movie and charish it because it could have been Jackie's last. Its plot doesn't really matter, because as with all Jackie movies, we are seeing it for amazing action and hilarious comedy. This has both, but im lesser doses. It is almost like a romantic comedy, because it deals with a love triangle between Jackie and two of his former band-mates(he used to be in a band called The Losers, with some girl and Alan Tam). This film is all in good fun, but it doesnt reach the level of martial-arts greatness that Drunken Master 2 or Project A do. Still, check this one out, its really good.
