According to his autobiography "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action" during the making of this film Jackie was kidnapped by Triad gangsters working on behalf of his former employer Wei Lo. They and Lo forced Chan into working on a new film for him which Jackie sarcastically called "Action Movie: A Feature Film". Eventually Jackie's manager Willie Chan learned of this and got the upper management of Golden Harvest Pictures involved. Golden Harvest shipped Jackie out of Hong Kong for nearly a year for his own protection. He couldn't attend this film's premiere and had to find out it's box office results from telegrams. As a result both Battle Creek Brawl (1980) and The Cannonball Run (1981) were made while Jackie was living in exile as the Triad backed negotiations over his contract between Golden Harvest and Lo took place.

The British Hong Kong Legends DVD release, besides containing the original Cantonese track, contains a newly dubbed English track made especially for that release. This is mainly because there was no English track created for the 106 min version. With this new track, this release is the only version that features the film dubbed while retaining its original Hong Kong length, as only a 90 min dub was previously created. See more »
A young Jackie Chan, showing what a master can do.
He really is a master in this film. I really don't know what else to say. The whole movie is beautifully choreographed and the fighting is unbelievable. He does things with chairs and tables that no one can copy. As for the story it is as usual not very deep, but who cares about that when you see Jackie Chan kicking ass with a fan?
