Movie Info

Jackie Chan wrote, directed and stars in this English-language action-comedy tale of about a commando group that travels to South Africa to kidnap scientists working on new energy sources. However, a Washington-based cover-up requires a downed plane after completion of the mission, and Jackie is the only survivor of the plane crash. When the crash trauma leaves him with amnesia, his question, "Who am I?" becomes his name -- Whoami. Recognized by CIA agent Morgan (Ron Smerczak), Whoami learns covert operatives have sent assassins to eliminate him, and the martial arts footwork gets fancy with Whoami heading to Rotterdam in hopes of recovering his memory. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Jackie has to be the best modernized martial arts movie magician of all time. This isn't my favorite movie of his, I had seen it before but chose to re-watch it after not remembering the last time I actually did see it. Just watch it for the roof fight toward the end. It's an instant classic and has one of his top 10 stunts ever in it.

    "Ngo si sui" is about an agent (Jackie Chan) who plays a US operative who is sent on a mission with a team in South Africa. Everyone involved with this mission, with the exception of several "higher ups" are killed in a helicopter accident but Jackie Chan is fortunate enough to fall out of the helicopter before it crashed. When he wakes up, he has developed amnesia, forgetting who he is and what he has done. The rest of the film then is about his own personal quest to find out his past and identity. All the while, some dastardly CIA operatives try to catch and dispose of him. Fortunately WhoamI, as he is called now, he has not forgotten his training, especially not the training in martial arts. So as he fights for his own survival he must find out both who he is and why he is in such a danger.

    Easily Chan's best film. Solid story telling that keeps the viewer guessing, enough emotion to keep us from sitting in the shallow end and definitely includes the charm of Chan's signature comedy-action. But where it shines are the set pieces and action sequences that don't feel like a derivative of his Police Story films, there's always something exciting to look forward to as whoami runs around the world "battling" villains one way or another. Ah the villains, generic and cardboard as always but who expects better from a martial arts / action film from the 90's?
