The effect of showing the shadows when Eddie (Jackie Chan) is beating up a thug in the sewer early in the movie, was also used in Enter The Dragon (1973), which also featured Jackie Chan and Sammo Kam-Bo Hung. See more »
The picture that the detective shows Eddie and his sidekick shows the Hong Kong thief with a bowler hat and glasses, but in a later shot, the picture on the page has no glasses nor bowler hat. See more »
I began watching Jackie Chan movies because it was SO cool that anyone could move like that. He didn't need the stuntmen, he didn't need the CGI, he was just that good. Plus, his movies had a sense of humor that was subtle enough to be funny without feeling you were being hit in the head with a 2x4.
And now this travesty of a movie. The action scenes? CGI'd up to the point that Ben Affleck could pull 'em off. The comedy? Lame, and forced.
As I sat in shell-shocked silence at the end of the movie (having tried desperately yet unsuccessfully several times throughout to go to sleep), all I could wonder is, what was Jackie Chan thinking? :(
