Trivia

Filmed before but released after Jackie Chan's two Seasonal Productions movies, Snake in the Eagle's Shadow (1978) and Drunken Master (1978). This movie was filmed as a Mandarin-language movie. However, the focus on the dubbing switched to Cantonese, due to the success of the Cantonese-language Seasonal movies. This is why most releases feature Cantonese as the only Chinese dialect option, despite the fact that the harder-to-find Mandarin track syncs up with the actors far better. See more »

Alternate Versions

The US version is approximately 20 minutes shorter than the Hong Kong version. See more »
