Melbourne, Australia. TV Journalist Diana tapes evidence against drug lord Giancarlo, but on her way away from the scene, she is spotted and has to run. In the street, she runs into TV cook Jackie, whose knowledge of martial arts helps her survive the threat. Accidentally, her VHS-tape then gets mixed up with some kid's films in Jackie's car and so all the bad guys are after him as well as Diana, without him knowing where to find the right tape. But when Jackie's visiting girlfriend Miki gets kidnapped for the tape as ransom, Jackie puts the image of being the nice and friendly TV cook aside and goes to see Mr. Giancarlo himself to get her back: playtime's over.

Because of the mess they left behind (from the demolished house), the production company was barred permanently from ever filming in that part of Australia again. See more »
Diana's film of Giancarlo is an exact replay of the movie's scenes. This film, supposedly shot from an air-conditioning vent, includes a shot from the other side of the room of her and her cameraman being discovered. See more »
During the final credits some outtakes (mostly action scenes) are shown See more »
This film has some of the worst acting, and very nearly the worst plot of any movie out there. But I loved it. The action sequences (and to a lesser extent the comedy) are really impressive in this film. Its what we've come to expect from Jacki Chan movies. The finale is really quite impressive.
The acting in itself is quite humorous. Aussie actors doing really bad american accents, or just totally overacting. And some of them are actually quite good in other roles.
There also is a question to be raised over the editing. Why was the take where I was standing in the background not used? Doh, I could've been a movie star!
