Trivia

There have been many rumors as to what happened during the filming of the big fight scene with Jackie Chan and Benny Urquidez, ranging from the film makers threatening to fire Urquidez for hitting Jackie too hard, or that the two actors did not get along. While they were somewhat competitive during rehearsals and filming for the fight, they respected each other and at the end of filming, gave each other a big hug.

Goofs

When the van gets a flat at the insane asylum the wheel being removed is a 5-nut one and when the camera cuts to the brakes it is showing 4 nuts. See more »

Alternate Versions

Five separate audio versions of this movie exist.
  • Two Original Cantonese versions, mono and new remastered 5.1 mix.
  • The Mandarin version.
  • Two English versions: One produced by Golden Harvest with a new score composed by Keith Morrison, and one later produced by Fortune Star featuring the original music score by Tang Siu-lam. The Golden Harvest dub/re-score was also used for the Japanese theatrical cut of the film, titled "Spartan X". (The Golden Harvest dub actually contains the dubbed voices of the real three lead actors themselves: Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, and Sammo Hung.)

Jackie, Yuen and Sammo's finest IMHO
18 July 2000 | by chris_chownSee all my reviews

Of all the 3 brothers' films, this is the one more than any other that I've managed to turn people onto Jackie Chan with (yes, more than Project A!).

A well plotted, decently paced movie with some absolutely genuine comedy moments, and as for the action, oh the action... people have already commented on the incredible sequence between Jackie and Benny Urquidez, but that's not all, the film is packed with some truly dazzling acrobatics.

Fantastic fun, and a worthy introduction for any Jackie Chan newbies.
