Obviously storyline is almost completely lacking but that's not at all why I love this movie. It's because of Jackie Chan and his amazing stunts and fight choreography. How he manages to fit hilarious scenes in all his fights and crack me up. Favorite scene is near the end when he fights the two guys on the roof, then he has to get down somehow with no other way but to slide down the slanted building's windows of over 30 stories. It's crazy since he did that himself. Jackie is a legend no matter what anyone else thinks.
Probably Jackie Chan's best film. A nice story with wonderful characters throughout. Jackie Chan is excellent in the lead here, generating an amazing amount of humour and realism. The other actors also occupy their roles quite nicely as the film presses forward towards excellent action set-piece after another. One of the best action movies around, truly underrated.
Solid Jackie Chan Hong Kong action film. This definitely falls into the Americanized category of his Hong Kong films, but it's still better than most American martial arts and action films, even if it's not as good as some of Jackie's earlier films, like "Police Story" or "Drunken Master".
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.
