Trivia

According to Jackie Chan's autobiography, the film took 9 months to shoot and ended up costing over US$9 million, a staggering amount for a Hong Kong film at the time. The film bombed at the box office and the studio, Golden Harvest, was not happy. So in an attempt to recoup some box office, Chan made the globe trotting adventure Armour of God II: Operation Condor (Fei Ying Gwai Wak). See more »

Different, but great
7 December 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I recently picked up a full, subtitled copy of 'Miracles', and I must say that the original is better than the dubbed version I had previously seen, and that version was also around half an hour shorter than the original version. The dubbed version cut out some not-so-important scenes, but things still got confusing at times, and some very funny scenes which did not make into the dubbed version, and at least one of the fight scenes was significantly edited in the dubbed version.

'Miracles' a very different movie to most of Jackie's work. There is the trademark Jackie Chan action and slapstick, but fights and action sequences are not as frequent as they are in his other movies, as 'Miracles' is more about Jackie proving to critics that he can make a movie with extravagant sets and costumes, and complicated camera shots (Who can blame him? James Cameron did the same thing, but 'Miracles' is a both an enjoyable and a good movie, while 'Titanic' is neither).

The movie is funny, and the action (what action there is) is excellent, and even the acting is great.

9/10 A great movie. Check it out if you're a Jackie Chan fan, but make sure you get the full, subtitled movie (should be about two-hours).
