Jackie Chan's son Jaycee appeared in this movie (though not as his son). At one point, both are arrested by the Japanese, who note how much they look alike, prompting a comic argument disputing this. See more »
All I can really say about this movie is that it is OK of a bit long. It is watchable and has some good moments but it could have been so much better. This is not a typical Jackie Chan movie but then not many of his later ones are. We have to appreciate that Mr Chan is getting older I suppose and can't be the martial arts genius we are used to but he is still a good comedic, slap stick actor and there is some of this in this movie.
I just felt the story was a good one and could have been much better had it been directed to move at a faster pace. Instead it got a bit tedious and boring in places.
