Revealing mistakes: Johnny Kung is talking to his father on the phone, and Kung Wei tells him to call him on his pager if he needs anything. As Kung Wei reads his pager number on the phone, and the subtitles show the numbers - 1177131910, Johnny writes them on the brick wall. But he misses the last "1" between the 9 and 0. He memorizes the number and then wipes it off the wall - but he would have the wrong number memorized.See more »

Good, 22 December 2000
Author: marquis de cinema from Boston, MA

I was entertained when I saw this Jet Li film in a second hand theater. The story is a little melodramatic but the fight scenes are outstanding. Gei Ba Ba De Xin/My Father is a Hero(1995) was the first Jet Li movie that I ever saw. One of his last films from Hong Kong before heading for Hollywood. My Father is a Hero(1995) is an unusual Jet Li picture because it mixes gunplay with plenty of martial arts.

My favorite scene is the shootout at the restaurant. I hate the version released here as The Enforcer because of the English dubbing. The action scenes are aggressively directed by Corey Yuen(director of the visually splendid Saviour of the Soul{1992}). Jet Li shows that he's the closet there is to a successor to Bruce Lee. Anita Mui kicks butt as Inspector Fong Yat Wah.
