Chan's 'decent film period' with international appeal, 18 January 2004
Author: zoe_smith from Hong Kong

I'm a big Chan fan and have watched most of his films.

This one seems to be a forerunner (except the Aussie-based ones) to his attempt to internationalize himself by appearing with Western co-actors and filming on international locations. I would say that A.S. is the better of this group of films. It has a resonable plot with more purpose than most of his other films. It also has a decent filming location in Turkey, and his co-stars also have some degree of character. We also still manage to savour some good quality stunt antics before they are about to all but disappear in Chan's most recent films of Tuxedo etc.

Worth selecting out of Chan's collection.
