In the beginning of the race, Foh enters the pitlane. Krugman has already passed the pit entry. Foh gets a 30 second penalty, and has to stay in the pit for 1 minute 31 seconds. At 1 minute 15 or so, Krugman comes in, which means he did a very fast lap (q-time was 1:39). During his part of the race, Krugman laps Foh, but Foh is never seen relapping him, while winning the race. See more »
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, but I'd much rather watch a better Chan film, such as "Police Story" or "Legend of Drunken master." The Story was good, and the racing was an interesting Idea, but I don't think there were enough fights, and even when there were fights, bad camera work made it impossible to see what was going on. one good thing about the movie, there was one shootout scene, and it was awesome! This one is a good "Renter" but not a "Buyer." If your a fan of Jackie Chan, you need to see this movie, but don't buy it without seeing it first. This is one of the only Jackie Chan films I won't buy, unless I have a lot of money to spare, and i'm in a store with the DVD in front of me.
