Even though it's obviously more of an action-comedy than a full-blown martial arts spectacular, it still has pretty bad pacing, with much longer stretches of situational comedy than I was expecting. And most of those scenes I was distracted with trying to figure out if people were mouthing Spanish or Cantonese and whether they spoke Cantonese or were just saying it phonetically. Which would be really weird for an actor, right? To get a job where you're just told to make these specific Chinese-like sounds and we'll dub it in later. But even if the action is poorly spread throughout, it's still good enough stuff to wait around for. That throwdown at the end between Jackie and Benny the Jet is the kind of thing you can't even believe is humanly possible even when it's happening right there on the screen.

Terrific Jackie Chan/Samo Hung/Yuen Biao picture about a food truck owner cousins (Chan and Biao) and their private detective buddy (Hung) helping save a beautiful pickpocket and getting caught up in all sorts of intrigue. I'd forgotten what a good director Samo Hung was when shooting a fight sequences. His fight scenes are so clean and perfectly compliment the fight choreography, which features what's considered one of the greatest martial arts fight sequence of all time when Chan fights Benny "The Jet" Urquidez at the film's climax.

a great film with the most amazing dodge I have ever seen. Dragons forever may be better, but the last fight against Benny 'the jet' ranks in Jackie's all time top fights!

This is another one of those comedic movies from Jackie Chan, Summo Hung and Yuen Biao, which is very much like the others that they released earlier on in there careers. This movie is based in Spain were cousins Thomas (Jackie Chan) and David (Yuen Biao) have there mobile fast food business. Whilst visiting Thomas's sick dad in hospital, they sight a nice looking girl, who happens to be his dads girlfriends daughter but Thomas can't pluck up the courage to speak to her. They then see her again as a prostitute in the red light district while they are serving food to customers and she uses there van as an escape because she has been caught pick pocketing a punter. They then decide to take her in but her stealing ways get the better of her and she ends up taking there money and there next door neighbours car. There good friend Moby (Sumo Hung) has been asked to look after a detective agency and he's been given a case to find the girl who stole from Thomas & David. Very confusing! Anyway, it turns out that the girl is an heiress and she is due to inherit a lot of money from her dead father within 14 days, so Sumo Hung has to find her so her fathers brother doesn't inherit the money. The brother then sends out his elite squad to kidnap the girl so he can inherit the money but Thomas, David and Moby come to her rescue by fighting off the many goons that are out to get her. I must admit, a lot of these silly films that Jackie Chan starred in earlier on in his career had some detailed storylines that would be good movies if they were taken seriously. This film wasn't as bad as a lot of the other movies that I have seen during this Jackie Chan season but it still could have been a lot better if it wasn't for the awful comedic script. Like I have said many times before, the action scenes are impressive along with the death defying stunts and the attention to detail during the car chases but I'm struggling to find the comedy funny. The acting wasn't as bad as I was expecting and I liked the training scenes at the beginning but I'm still struggling to keep my eyes open during some of he's movies. Average!

This is another movie directed by Sammo Hung, which might explain the silly comedy throughout the movie. As usual, the chemistry between Chan, Hung and Biao is great and you can tell that they have made many movies together. It seems like Chan broke up there tight family when he moved to America to try and conquer the English market with movies like the Medallion, the Rush Hour franchise and the Tuxedo. Anyway, this was a watchable movie but the comedy was awful.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/comedy/crime/martial arts movies starring Jackie Chan, Biao Yuen and Sammo Kam-Bo Hung. 4/10

Silly fun funny movie with the three stooges of kung fu. Interesting and entertaining with great stunt work, of course. Not much to it though. 6.5/10

A fantastic film Jackie Chan and his companions come in with a blast has its funny moments and its action moment but the final showdown is really worth it

The movie was great, pretty funny.

The film draws from the first frame and does not let go until the very end credits. Definitely one of the best films in a career not only Sammo Hung, but Jackie Chan. Stunts and fights are delivered at the highest level, and the final fight between the characters of Jackie and world kickboxing champion Benny Urkidezom, I think, one of the best in his career FEB all kinemetagrofe.

The story wasn't great, but one must love those fight sequences.

Not only does this have some of the greatest stunts and fights of all time (especially the bout with Benny the Jet), but there is a great cast with genuine humor throughout! This may be my favorite Chan flick.

Hong Kong's Comedic Martial Arts Trio, Return For What Is Another Extremely Enjoyable Martial Arts Comedy Flick. This One See's The Trio Causing Trouble In Barcelona As Private Dick Moby (Sammo Hung) Has Been Hired To Find A Woman And Her Daughter. While Fast Food Chefs Thomas & David (Jackie Chan & Yuen Biao), Clash With The Daughter, Who Which Moby Is Looking For. What Ensuses Is A Great Comedic Martial Arts Film With Some Great Sequences. The Film Was Originally Going To Be Called "Meals On Wheels" But After The Failure Of 1982's "Megaforce" Studio Head Raymond Chow Vowed Never To Produce A Film That Began With "M".

One of the greatest Hong Kong action films ever made. The duel between Jackie Chan and Benny Urquidez (also seen in Grosse Pointe Blank) is one of the greatest onscreen fights ever choreographed.

A cool and entertaining martial-arts comedy with the genius collaborations of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao. The story is very basic but it has some nice humor and one of the best fight scenes on screen (Jackie Chan vs Benny Urquidez, and Biao Yuen + Sammo versus some thugs). It's an old school, classic film with some ridiculously impressive stunts and action that skillfully blends the talents of the three into a jaw-dropping flick.

Another movie by the Three Brothers in 1983. Not great, not bad. It's typical 80s style action-professionalism/wacky hijinx-slapstick. This is the opposite of the usual though -- The comedy works pretty well, the story is surprisingly decent, the fights however are undercranked so much that "Yackety Sax" is sorely missing. If you like the light-hearted comedy side of the "Three Brothers", this is great just like Winners and Sinners, but if you want a dose of intensity, stick to Project A, Dragons Forever, or their individual starring roles.

Wheels on Meals (1984) REVIEW: The martial art stunts and the car chase was pretty spectacular but overall, the entire thing felt lazy almost as if Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao made a movie during their vacation, loads of fun but nothing too special. I give the film a 50% + an 8% for the hot leading lady.

The kung-fu comedy trinity return, this time, in Spain. Chan and Biao sell Chinese food out of a yellow van while Hung is a PI with a perm. Good fights, some swordplay and even a car chase. Not to mention the rad skateboarding! Great martial arts, horrible costumes, lots of fun.

Wheels On Meals, Directed by Sammo Hung, Starring Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Biao Yuen. One of major-films of the trio (often called Big Brothers in East-Asia). This film should set the theme and foundation for most of the films coming up with the unique plot of the film. Jackie Chan's fight with Benny Urquidez is considered one of best fights ever filmed. I consider this film to be one of my top favorite films from Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan.
