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 »

Not Jackie Chan's best film, but still worth a watch, 28 January 1999
Author: Robert Elliott (rde@irelands-web.ie) from Dublin, Ireland

The first thing I noticed about this film is that it seems to star everyone who ever made a movie in Hong Kong; I seemed to spend the entire movie going 'oooh, it's Yuen Biao!' (or whoever). Plotwise, it's typical early Jackie Chan; frenetic action sequences punctuated by high farce. As in a lot of his early stuff, the farce can be a bit excruciating, but not so much that you'll feel obliged to hit fast-forward. The action sequences, while interesting, aren't as spectacular as in his later movies; the movie seems to try to be more of a plot-driven movie (and much as I love Jackie Chan, these aren't really his strong points). If for some bizarre reason you aren't yet a Jackie Chan fan, you'll probably want to check out Armor of God or Project A first. If I'm preaching to the converted, you'll find Oiji merrily passes an hour and a half, but it's by no means a masterpiece. It's got Anita Mui, though. She always makes a movie watchable.
