Trivia

Despite training in martial arts since the age of six, and having choreographed his own fight scenes in many previous movies, Jackie Chan assigned a fight choreographer with only six years experience. See more »

Goofs

As the camera changes front views of both Jackie and Kiss during the street crowd scene, two extras (a dark-haired woman in a checked suit and a bald man in a blue suit) are simultaneously located viewing the action behind both Jackie and Kiss. See more »

Alternate Versions

For its original UK theatrical release the film was cut by the BBFC for a 'AA' certificate to remove groin kicks, a neck break and a double ear clap. The video and all later releases including the DVD (retitled "Battle Creek Brawl") have replicated the cut to the ear clap. See more »

Not Bad But Lacks The Quality of Other Jackie Flicks
28 December 2005 | by no-skylineSee all my reviews

Jackie's first staring role in an American made movie, Robert Clouse (Enter the Dragon) directs but this never really hits the high notes of say Project A or Armour of God. The problem being that Jackie is lumbered with ex-pro wrestlers and the like with which to produce fight choreography and not his own JC stunt team so the timing and trust was just not there to produce truly stunning fights.

Only once does Jackie get to work his true magic and this is with two members of his own team in a fight that easily surpasses anything on show in the rest of the movie. If they had let Jackie choreograph the entire movie this would have been a much better film as lets face it the fights are what we here for in a movie like this.

Overall it's entertaining in places but for Chan enthusiasts only, if you've never seen a J.C film before your better of starting with Project A, Police Story or for the older more traditional style kung fu flick Drunken Master.

Entertaining for Chan fans only - 5/10
