Similar to "The Dirty Dozen" or one of that nature. Japan is trying to take over the world and the generals of the allied forces trying to stop the Japanese have been taken prisoner. A force of loners and fighters is put together to try and rescue the generals and save the war effort with the promise of gold and/or pardons of past crimes.Written by

The Tuxedoed Guy's real name is "Yu Jin Xiang" (Tulip), and his entrance theme is also that of Chor Lauheung (1979) ("Chu Liu Xiang" in Mandarin), a martial arts soap in which Adam Cheng was starring at the time. Given he played a suave swordsman with an eye for women in the latter, he was associated with these Bond-like characters for a while. His role as "Tuxedo Man" is a riff on that. See more »
At the start of the movie, when the attack on the generals' camp begins, the first general points around a map saying, "According to our intelligence reports, the Japanese are here... here... here... & here." However, he is pointing around a map of northern Canada. See more »

My God. I don't really know what to say.. I expected your usual old-school Chan flick. Not even Close. It's a movie about a bunch of goofy characters on a mission to save some people.. I think. Either way, it is TOTAL fantasy with that strange slapsticky Asian comedy that us westerners just don't quite get. Totally off the hook, and here's the clincher. Jackie isn't even a main character! Just an old movie he did as a favor for Jimmy Wang Yu (I think) repackaged under Jackie's name for obvious reasons (moolah).
Definitely one of the strangest movies I have ever seen.
