Movie Info

Following up from their success with Project A, martial arts-comedy trio Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao head out to Spain for this screwball kung-fu flick. Thomas and David (Chan and Yuen) run a Chinese lunch wagon in the streets of Barcelona. One day, David encounters a beautiful pickpocket named Sylvia (Lola Forner, who also appeared in Armor of God) and he is immediately smitten. Meanwhile, inept private dick Moby (Hung) is tracking down the illegitimate daughter of a dead count. If the woman can be found within two weeks after his death, his vast riches go to her. If not, then her evil stepbrother gets the goods. Of course, Sylvia turns out to be the missing heiress. And naturally her evil step-brother has sent out a bevy of goons to insure his inheritance while David, Moby, and Thomas vow to protect the lass. The film was originally going to be called "Meals on Wheels" until studio head Raymond Chow, after the utter failure of his 1982 opus Megaforce, vowed never to have a film that began with an "M." ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

    Solid movie, it maintains a light and fun tone throughout so that makes it better than it probably would've been if it took itself seriously. The pacing really kind of sucked however and kept the movie from being better. I suppose they wanted to save the big stuff for the end, which is good since the last long fight scene was excellent, but the movie still had an erratic pace. There's also some bloopers, but this is not really all that surprising. What surprised me is how BIG of a blooper it was. There was this scene where Jackie and Biao were dressed up as dudes driving an ambulance and they were dressed accordingly. They had wigs and shit. The thing is, before they revealed who it was driving the ambulance, in one scene where they're trying to subdue Moby, you could see a dude with blond hair (Jackie was wearing a blond wig) and you could see he was clearly an American. I didn't really mind it that much quite frankly, it added (slightly) to the charm. And the fact that everybody in Spain understood and spoke Chinese. That's about it, the highlight of this movie is really the fight scenes and they're really good. Especially Jackie's last scene with Benny Urquidez, it was tremendous. This is one of his less dangerous movies but you could also see how he ended up being as broken down as he is currently. One thing you can't say about Jackie is that he didn't give it his all during his earlier movies. Anyway that's it...a solid movie overall but not a movie I'd watch ever again.

    13/06/2010 (ONLINE) This is a little old but its not a bad check. I'm always entertained by "Jackie Chan" and when you throw in "Sammo-Hung" and "Biao Yuen" then of course its going to be fun and silly, mostly silly. The good news is that it has a generous amount of kick butt action, I've seen better lately but remember, it was made in 1984, 24 years ago! A nice comedy flick that comes with kicks!

    If you're a Jackie Chan or have been a Hong Kong film fan for any real period of time, then the chances are you've already seen Wheels On Meals. This is one of those classic eighties action-comedies that HK produced rather well. It has the magic of the three brothers: Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao. I think I must have said the word "idiots" while laughing at least 20 times while watching. This is also the film that has the now legendary Jackie Vs Benny Urquidez fight. They fought again in Dragon's Forever, but it's the fight in Wheels On Meals that has to be one of the top fight scenes ever. It's really intense and both get to show some excellent moves as well as some lightning speed. Sammo and Yuen Biao also get to shine in the action scenes. Yuen Biao's fight against Keith Vitali is almost as great as the Jackie Vs Benny fight, getting to show off some of his gymnastic skills as he flips and rolls around rooms in a mansion. Unless you just can not stand martial arts films, there's no way in hell this movie won't entertain from beginning to end. It's not a perfect film and some parts, along witht he story seem to fall flat, but the comedy and incredible (an understatement) fight scenes make this one a worthwhile investment. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=wheelsonmeals.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/wheelsonmeals.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    Cool Hong Kong-style car chases, kung fu and stunts on the Coasta Brava.
