Why are you looking at me like that? You think women are good for nothing. I was runner-up in last year's European Women shooting, you'll be safe with me.
Only two women took part in that contest

This is Jackie's version of Indiana Jones. And you know what, I like this one better. It is also the film that nearly killed Jackie, even though the stunt he was doing was a fairly simple one. I really enjoy this movie and charish it because it could have been Jackie's last. Its plot doesn't really matter, because as with all Jackie movies, we are seeing it for amazing action and hilarious comedy. This has both, but im lesser doses. It is almost like a romantic comedy, because it deals with a love triangle between Jackie and two of his former band-mates(he used to be in a band called The Losers, with some girl and Alan Tam). This film is all in good fun, but it doesnt reach the level of martial-arts greatness that Drunken Master 2 or Project A do. Still, check this one out, its really good.
