Trivia

The skatepark at the beginning of the film was filmed in Hong Kong Park and Victoria Park, Hong Kong. During the skateboarding sequence in the downhill chase scene, Jackie Chan twisted his ankle as he jumped onto a skateboard. Following the injury, pro skateboarder Rick Ibaseta donned a Chan look-a-like costume and performed the remainder of the scene. In other skateboard stunt scenes, Miguel Rosales, Hudson Chang, and Rocky Lai were the stunt doubles for Jackie Chan. See more »

Totally ridiculous, totally entertaining!
20 June 2001 | by rutt13-1See all my reviews

I think this was the first "true" Jackie Chan movie I've seen...I was blown away by the stunts and fighting, but wow, this is ridiculous! I love it!!!! It's very bizarre, and really colorful. More or less, it's "Under Siege," but with Wong Jing's typical "anything goes" goofiness! A lot of people I know hate this, but I absolute adore this live-action cartoon...I guess you just have to be of a certain type to enjoy it...and oh yeh, it has the finest selection of great-looking women I've ever seen in one film!
