Why? Because a number of scenes taken from Jackie Chan's 1985 film "The Protector" have been spliced on to this film just so the audience think JC is in a new film when in fact he isn't. In fact they would be confused like I was, it's like watching two different films.
The main plot are two brothers from mainland China go to Hong Kong to help their Uncle and his daughter with his restaurant. Once they leave the HK airport a number of thugs 'accientally' run into them and cause a small fight where upon the thugs are apprehended by the police. It appears they had a big bag of dope on them. Understandably their boss is not happy. Speaking of the boss this guy is weird. He always has a vacant look on his face, says very few words and has a taste for apples. You don't want to be around him when he's eating his apples.
Later on the two brothers and the girl run into the triad boss' other underlings at a night club and beat them up. Next we see a bizarre rollerskating competition. The thug's girlfriend girl takes part but gets beat so the thugs kidnap the girl who won. Basiacally the rest of the film is the two brothers and the Uncle try to rescue the girl and in the process take on the Triad gang.
Jackie Chan turns up in three scenes that have nothing to do with this film which only serve to confuse the viewer.
