Storyline

Jackie plays Foh, an expert mechanic who has returned from Japan after a master course at Mitsubishi Motors. He runs a small business in Hong Kong along with his father and two sisters. In his spare time, he also helps the police out by checking cars that have been illegally upgraded. One night, psychotic street racing driver Warner Krugerman, aka Cougar, speeds past Foh and the cops. Foh gets into a car and stops Cougar heroically. Cougar lands in jail, but breaks out eventually. He gets revenge on Foh by trashing his business and kidnapping his sisters. The only way Foh can get his sisters back is by racing cougar in Japan. He now must retrain himself in race car driving so he can be at his best to race Cougar. Written by Pat McCurry <laraspal00@aol.com>

Trivia

According to the unauthorized Jackie Chan Sourcebook, New Line Cinema scheduled this movie for a 1997 U.S. release, but shelved it. It was released on DVD by New Line Cinema's home video division, New Line Home Entertainment, in an uncut version, then a re-scored, further edited version, with optional English dub or original Cantonese audio with optional English subtitles and original soundtrack of the movie.

Goofs

Just moments before the Lancer Evolution III crashed it can be seen from the other driver's perspective that there was no wing on the car, but in the next shot the wing can be seen clearly. See more »

Alternate Versions

Two different openings were shot for the film. In the Japanese print, Jackie, while training at the Mitsubishi car plant in Japan, breaks company rules by test driving a prototype without permission. As a result, he has to return to Hong Kong. In the Hong Kong print, Jackie simply completes his training, has an amusing encounter with the boss's daughter, then leaves Japan of his own accord.

OK Chan Film
20 September 2009 | by imdb-21622See all my reviews

First off, I found the plot a bit problematic at times. Not atypical for a Chinese movie, no offense to the Chinese movie makers intended.

As a race fan, the auto racing scene did not look realistic to me much of the time. I read that they drove at slower speeds and sped up the film, which is exactly what it looks like. They are going way too fast for sports cars in some scenes.

Besides the excess speed, the cars are not smooth. Skilled race drivers are not driving all over the track - that would obviously cause you to lose time, and probably control :) Not a big deal maybe to a general audience, but people familiar with racing will notice it.

Some of the fighting scenes were pretty good, as expected. I did not feel my time was wasted. I just wish they had done the racing in a more realistic way.
