Miramax (a subsidiary of Disney) acquired the international distribution rights to the film (outside of Asia). Like many Jackie Chan films distributed by Disney, scenes were cut, foreign dialog was dubbed, and the music score was changed. However, Miramax made so many changes to the film that it almost changed the entire movie for its release on video in 2004 by the home video division, called Dimension Home Video. See more »

That unfairly never made it to the Cinemas (well in the UK anyway) probably because most of the dialogue is dubbed into English. There is more than enough action, with countless breathtaking stunts (Mainly performed by Chan himself) The bad Guys though are very much underused - so you never really feel Jackie's life is in danger. Otherwise a very good Chan Movie that's a must watch for his fans
My rating 8/10
