On the Hong Kong Legends DVD release of this movie, Hong Kong cinema expert Bey Logan offers his opinion of why this movie underperformed both in the domestic and Japanese markets. The primary reason cited is that the actors played roles against type. Jackie Chan plays a slick lawyer who chases women, in contrast to the happy-go-lucky everyman characters he usually plays. Similarly, Biao Yuen plays an eccentric and possibly mentally disturbed character, rather than the underdog character fans were used to. For Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, rather than the timid character that's been described in earlier movies, he instead plays like a rascal. Logan explains that in general, the cinema-going public in Hong Kong are not as open to such departures of role as, perhaps, the public in the West would be. See more »

It's amazing what you can do in your "last collaborative effort." With other movies behind Chan, Hung, and Biao like "Winners and Sinners" and "Wheels on Meals" (weird-as-all-hell names, if you ask me), the three kung-fu-teers, as they've been called, made their last, and what I consider best of their films. The inimitable Jackie Chan plays a lawyer, and a corrupt one at that. However, he does beat a healthy load of bad guys into body casts, with his pals Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao along for the ride. Scary kickboxer Benny "the Jet" Urquidez dukes it out with Jackie for the last time as a generic thug, subsequently getting his villainous rear knocked from here to the god-awful studio that made "Baby Geniuses." Give this movie a try. You won't be disappointed.
