undescriable

this is not what you would call an original jc film, the plot alone may turn some fans away. id say watch it before you judge.in some sense it still has some of chan's trademarks. helping defending and honesty,at first the film seems quite boring but after a while i was starting to enjoy it*****not one for the weak hearted*******
