This movie is the reason I love HK martial arts cinema. It started it all for me. Before this, I had never seen a Jackie Chan movie or martial arts movie for that matter. I was very young the first time I watched this and was just wowed by it. I have watched this movie many times since and I now have one hell of a martial arts movie collection.
The acting is pretty bad, but not in a charming way. Holy hell that stunt where Jackie gets pulled across the water, though.
A part of me loves that this movie lacks any denoument whatsoever and cuts right to the blooper reel.
The ultimate, colorful, fulfilled intersection of Jackie Chan's and America's '90s action-comedies, with strong kung-fu and jaws-agape stunt-destruction sequences. Incredibly, it never ceases to escalate. An absolute delight!
