I never thought i'd live to see the day when the great Jackie Chan made a film as truly AWFUL as this !
I've tried to think of something positive to say, but I can't, it really is THAT bad.
We expect many things from a Jackie Chan movie, the incredible fighting, the awesome stunts, the fantastic humour etc, but this film has none of the above.
As for the "fighting", that is risable, and worst of all; Jackie uses WIRES - correction, Jackie uses wires BADLY !
And the "villain" ? He is the worst Brit villain EVER ! A charisma and menace free zone. He is like an extra from a British TV Cop Series, maybe "3rd Drug Dealer from the right" - he is THAT anonymous.
I just can't write about this movie anymore, it's just depressing to have to remember back to it.
All fans of the maestro Jackie Chan, just avoid this film at all costs else you might believe that your hero really does have feet of clay.
