Multi-genre flick (western, martial arts, comedy, adventure, etc.) with an all-star cast about a man who returns to his home town, buys everything in sight, and tries to improve its municipal (and his personal) profits by sabotaging a train so the passengers all have to stop in his town and spend lots o' money! Throw in various subplots involving some Japanese swordsmen, some bungling bankrobbers (one of whom is the head of security), and a gang of no-goods who try to mess up the town.

Eurpoean prints of the film delete the following:
- The second intro scene where Sammo verbally defends the hookers at the hotel from the angry "wives with banners". The scene was fairly important as it sets up the type of character Sammo was playing in the movie.
- The scene in the final brawl where Sammo's "ladies" attack the bandits from the toilet stalls.
- The scene featuring Corey Yuen's gangster character in a short battle with Kenny Bee's Marshall character.
