Trivia

Loosely based (as acknowledged in most versions) on the real story of millionaire Teddy Wang, who was kidnapped twice, first in 1983 and again in 1990. After the second kidnapping he was never found (in most versions of the film he is thrown off the kidnappers' ship, which is allegedly what really happened) and in 1999 he was officially declared dead.

Goofs

Before the kidnapping, when we first see Wng and his wife in the car, as she reclines her seat because she is felling unwell, they are not wearing their seatbelts. In subsequent shots, they are both wearing them. See more »

Interesting change of pace
1 October 2000 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was an interesting change of pace for a Jackie Chan film--not a joke to be found, just a lot of dark and gritty action. The production values are better than usual (though the US version's dubbing is awful!) and the story kept me interested. If you want to see a more serious side to Jackie Chan's acting, check this movie out. Don't watch it expecting tons of kung fu fighting, though, or you'll likely be disappointed.
