Jackie Chan had no involvement with the sequel. His name was used in the American title as an attempt to attract a western audience. See more »

The American version cut mostly dialogue, taking out Match's involvement with an Internet company. Match's name is different, from Match Fung to Match Yeung. Some of the Chinese dialogue is wrongly translated or not translated at all. See more »
UTTER GENIUS!!! (But only if taken as some kind of parody!)
Genius or utter madness? That depends on your interpretation of this film. I responded to it on the level of a self-aware "cop-movie parody", and I sincerely hope that was the intention as I don't see anyone taking it seriously! :-D Paul Rudd for one seems to be chewing up the scenery and really getting into the spirit of things! Is this film supposed to mark a departure for Rudd from his core background in the comedy genre? Some kind of insane attempt to reinvent him as a hard-boiled action star? I think not!
With the cheesy, almost awkward acting, low budget FX, and zany over-the-top action set pieces, it all kinda evoked that old TV show "Sledge Hammer" for me! HILARIOUS!!! :-)
Of course, I may have totally interpreted the film wrong. If it was in fact an attempt at a 'straight' action movie, then it was certainly an amusing failure!!
Watch with lots of alcohol and some mates!!! ;-)
