I guess I saw a better cut
23 March 2011 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

From reading about the edits, and people's complaints, I think I've seen a much better cut.

Certainly the physical quality is that of a 70s low budget Hong Kong film, but that's understandable.

The story I watched made perfect sense. It had a logical ending, and overall I enjoyed it. I suppose if you're watching this purely for Jackie Chan, you will be disappointed. And I agree it is dishonest retro marketing to label it a Jackie movie. I saw a copy of Cannon Ball Run in Hong Kong that had Jackie Chan on the cover and said "Starring Jackie Chan" obviously Hong Kong loves their boy, get used to it.

Purely as a film I though it had decent action, a good story and I enjoyed the overall tone. I've seen a lot (probably not even half) of Chan's films, I think this did more to showcase his skills than everything he's done in America from Rush Hour on. He does some serious stunts here, he hit hard, he's quick. He even gets to fight the final showdown with the protagonist.

There are some problems. 1. Apparently the original name was Police Woman, there is a female cop protagonist, but she's given a supporting role, only appearing at the very beginning, and towards the end. 2. The dubbing is bad, the voice acting is very good, but the dialog is often off timed, which is a minor annoyance, the dubbing audio quality is as bad as it can get without being inaudible. 3. Some scenes are choppy, but there is one big screwed up edit that comes in right before the climax, it's so bad you have to pretend you didn't see it or nothing makes sense. 4. It might be a casualty of aspect crossovers, but many of the scenes seem to have the camera off to the side, missing the action. As with the editing and dubbing, your experience may vary based on which cut you have.

I enjoyed this simple city story about a taxi driver crossing paths with a street gang, I enjoyed that the "good citizens" and friends backed him up (going against the cliché' 'go it alone' story) I enjoyed the action, with Charlie Chin and Qiu Yuen as the unstoppable good guys, and the antagonists led by Jackie Chan actually being able to fight.

My votes are usually similar to the IMDb score, altogether, I think if everyone saw the copy I did this film would be rated much higher, at least a 6, I give it a 7/10 because I can overlook the dubbing issues and scratchy film quality which certainly didn't exist when it premiered.
