The building with round windows seen at the beginning of the movie is known as the Jardine house, formerly the Connaught Centre, located near the bay in Hong Kong. Up until 1980, it was the tallest building in Hong Kong and Asia. See more »

This is an all right movie. It's a little better than Double Impact with Van Damme. It's about two lost brothers that come together and kick butt. The comedy in this movie helps it out a lot. If you like Jackie Chan, then this is a good movie to see.
