Storyline

A pair of evil kung-fu artists, Heaven and Earth, are slaughtering the entire Yin-Yang brotherhood. The movie opens with two members of the brotherhood and their two male children being chased by Heaven, Earth, and miscellaneous bad guys. The two members get away separately with their children. Twenty years later, we see Chan Lung (Jackie Chan) as he hunts frogs and snakes and keeps them in his pants. You learn he was one of the boys. The other is a lazy man who uses windmill-driven levers to deliver things to and from bedside, even a chamberpot and breakfast. Eventually, their respective paternal figures are killed, and they are forced to fight Heaven and Earth. Written by Michael Capps <capps@cs.unc.edu>

Trivia

When movie Producer Willie Chan left the Lo Wei Motion Picture Company to join Golden Harvest, he advised Jackie Chan to decide for himself whether or not to stay with Wei Lo. Chan began work on the movie, but then broke his contract and joined Golden Harvest. This prompted Lo to blackmail him with Triads, and to blame Willie Chan for his star's departure. The dispute was resolved with the help of fellow actor and Director Jimmy Wang Yu, allowing Chan to stay with Golden Harvest. In order to complete the movie, Lo hired stunt doubles to take Chan's place in the remainder of the movie, and used alternative takes and re-used footage from the first movie. Chan mentions that the end product of the movie was so bad, that he even tried to stop it from being released by going to court, but Lo released it regardless. See more »

One of Jackie's Worst
29 April 2004 | by HeeroYuy0905See all my reviews

I only saw this for my idol Jackie Chan. But even before I decided to rent it I knew it wasn't going to be very good since Jackie plays a villain.

The first thing any viewer would notice is that the cover is very misleading. According to the cover Jackie is star of this movie, even though all he has is a supporting role. In every scene, I found myself trying to catch glimpses of Jackie, but of course he was only a supporting actor.

Now keep in mind, I've seen many of Jackie's movies including some of the oldest ones. But even with that impartial opinion the fighting just wasn't very good either. It could stem from the fact that Director Lo Wei just wouldn't let go of the past. He was the man who directed the classic martial arts film 'Enter the Dragon' starring the legendary Bruce Lee. In a way, this was just another attempt to make Jackie into another Bruce Lee clone. He was even given the name 'Sing Lung' (already a dragon) for his movies with Lo Wei productions.

Another problem with this movie is the big mole Jackie had to wear on his face. I've read his book 'Jackie Chan: My life in Action' and he never mentions what the decision for that was. This could make viewers uncomfortable or something of that sort whenever they see him. I know I couldn't ignore it.

By the end I really wouldn't be able to recommend to anyone. Unless you're like me since I'm starting a Jackie Chan movie collection. And this would be a very important part of it since this was Jackie's last unfinished film with Lo Wei Productions and was released only after Jackie became a big time star in Asia under another production company. This made Director Lo Wei, who had hit some very hard times by then, finish the movie using a look-a-like and stock footage of others movies that could be used.

If you'd really like to see it, I would say rent it first then decide what you'd like to do.

Final Score: 3/10
