Like in many of their previous movies twins again failed at their latest attempt to portray themselves as serious actors.
Like many of their past movies only true twins fans can really enjoy this movie that lacks a decent plot line. Jaycee Chan (son of Jackie Chan) makes his first and only appearance to date in a film and after seeing his poor performance I recommend that he stick with music.
The only bright part to this poorly made movie is the small appearance of Jackie Chan to add some flavour to this movie.
To all the twins fans out their you would probably enjoy this but to all the other serious movie goers I would not really recommend it.
