Insp. Y.K. Chen: Don't worry, the Chinese Public Security people will extend their full cooperation.
Uncle Bill: That makes me worry even more.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Uncle Bill, say something cheerful, will you?
[to Chan Ka Kui]
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Good luck.
Uncle Bill: In fact, the Royal Hong Kong Police are flying Ka Kui like a kite for this mission. It may break when the wind is gusty.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Don't make such a depressing comparison.
Chan Ka Kui: It'll drift back if the string breaks.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: See? Ka Kui is up to scratch as I said.

7 Things You Usually Find In A Jackie Chan Film
20 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

With most of these Jackie Chan films, you are guaranteed of getting the same material, meaning: (1) tons of violence; (2) extraordinary stunt scenes; (3) good sound; (4) some hokey dubbed voices; (5) a juvenile story with even more- juvenile attempt at humor; (6) very little profanity and blood; (7) a stupid but still enjoying movie (for at least one viewing.)

All of this adds up to a "fair" rating. The fun part of watching Chan's films are the outrageous action scenes and stunts by The Man, himself. Especially for someone getting up their in age, Chan is incredible since he does his own stunts.

In this film, Chan's girlfriend, played by Michelle Yeoh, does her own stunts, too. She is an excellent martial arts talent in her own right and a pretty lady. By the way, during the closing credits they show some of the stunts that went wrong. Not all of these are shown for laughs. In a few of them, Chan is injured.

The sound was amazing for a VHS. I can only imagine the stereo on the DVD. Overall, a dumb movie with unrealistic fight scenes (people just about get killed, but keep getting up for more!) but if you know that and just want to enjoy a lightweight action film, it serves its purpose.
