On holidays in Hong Kong, Mrs Ma gives birth to identical twins. A criminal in the same hospital attempts to escape, taking one of the twins hostage. The child is lost during the confusion, and Mr and Mrs Ma return to New York with one child. Years later, John Ma is a famous conductor and pianist, unaware that his twin brother "Boomer" is a mechanic/race car driver/bodyguard in Hong Kong.

Goofs

The large registration numbers on the side of the speedboats in the chase scene change several times. Tyson and Boomer's boat is initially registration number 27838, however when it hits the ramp and skids across the land into the back of the truck, the registration number changes to 23108. Of the two boats giving chase, registration numbers 43738 and 24118, the former boat crashes and explodes - the number being clearly visible whilst it is on fire. In later scenes, the remaining boat should be 24118, but the number seen several times is 43738. See more »

Not too bad...
26 December 2000 | by edwardscissorhands99See all my reviews

I liked this film, yet it's quite different than other Chan movies. There are only 2 major, martial arts fights in the film (one at the beginning, and one at the end), but there are many explosions, stunts, chases, gunfights, and other things, that make up for the lost martial arts. Chan does a great job, and is hilarious as always, as he plays double roles. I loved the bath scene the best ("How did you get your clothes off so fast?"). Even though there are some stupid gags, some pretty bad special effects, and worst of all: no bloopers, this is overall an OK film, and is worth seeing.
