Jackie Chan's best movie. A wonderful heartwarming comedy story, and awesome fight scenes. A rope factory! What more could you ask for?
Audience Reviews for Mr. Canton and Lady Rose (Ji ji) (Miracles) (Black Dragon)
A truly touching story about creating a little miracle everyday.
One of the few Chan movies that can stand on its own even if you excised the action sequences! Great period flavor of a 1930's gangster film is a faithful retelling of Frank Capra's Lady for a Day. Except with fistfights! Comedic situations and a musical number with the radiant Anita Mui occupy most of the screentime, but the few action set pieces are all among the best of Chan's career. In particular I love the fight in the tea room which features amazing choreography executed with balletic beauty & precision, and is funny to boot! Then there are the rickshaws and finally the incredible jaw-dropping & side-splitting battle at the rope factory. Now that's entertainment! Ranks #7 among my all-time favorite Jackie Chan flicks.
Jackie Chan makes a rare acknowledge of his own mortality by experimenting with higher drama quolient and some lovely sleight-of-hand in place of major stunts - the result is electrifying.
