Jackie's hair grows between shots in the beginning between stealing the sword and sliding down the hill. This was due to an accident he suffered while filming early scenes for the film, which left him with a small hole in one side of his head. His hair has remained reasonably long in most of his subsequent films. See more »

Jackie Chan and his bumbling sidekick are sent on a quest through Europe to find a mysterious treasure held by a shadowy organization of monks.
I made the mistake of watching the sequel to this film first. They are both good, and it really makes little difference what order you watch them in (just as the "Police Story" films have little chronology). But it would have been nice to meet the character of Asian Hawk sooner.
