Upon the movie's North American release, Canada-based kick-boxing entrepreneurs Martin McNamara and Michael McNamara sued Miramax Film Corp., Alliance Atlantis Communications, and Front Row Entertainment Inc. for their continental promotion of the film. Claiming copyright and trademark infringement, the McNamaras - who hold the copyright on the term "Twin Dragons" as the name of their martial arts academy - asserted that the movie "tarnished" their image as fighting promoters and asked for a total of $37 million in damages.

It's no "City Hunter," but this is a pretty goofy flick...It's just good fun though, and even if you think twin movies are bad---THIS IS JACKIE CHAN!!! I like it, it's just a cute, fun flick. Let's not forget to mention the ending though, it's worth the price of admission alone, with some of the coolest and most dangerous stunts I've ever seen! Can't take my eyes off Nina Li, or Maggie Cheung either!
