Jackie Chan gives us his most elegant comedy/action film yet. The setting of the 1930's is extremely fantastic as he plays a young man who is accidentally the head of a local Triad. Thanks to the likes of Bill Tung and Richard Ng, the film will make you laugh. Great performances by Anita Mui and Gloria Yip set the dramatic pace. But what's a Jackie film without action? His climatic duel with Billy Chow and gang in a rope factory is great. I give the film two thumbs up. If you're a JC fan, go see this film.
