Not a bad movie, it's actually groundbreaking in that the heroine is the best fighter. The hero is a cabbie with mediocre fighting skills and a good heart. Jackie Chan is among the hoodlums - look closely.

While this film has some decent fight scenes, they are very few and far between, there's too much filler and the dubbing and camerawork is horrible. Skip this, it ain't worth seeing and Jackie Chan is hardly ever seen in it. 1/10

This movie list Jackie Chan with his picture on the DVD Cover, but you have to be good to find Jackie in this movie, No he's not the guy with the mole on his face, he make 5-6 short set appearances in this movie, be sharp and you will spot him. He plays a bad guy. My copy is from Beverly Wilshire Film Works / Telefilms International, I picked my copy up at a yard sale for a dollar, and when I see what its selling for at Amazon, I got a good deal. but after watching this I wonder why anyone would pay more then a dollar. My copy was extra wide screen, no there was no slide saying this movie was modified to fit your screen. All the English dubbing is not those of charters in the video. I swear my copy had two openings one seem totally unrelated to the film. The movie finally started making sense about 1/2 through it. But Jackie is far from the main star. I knew I was in trouble when the opening credits listed Jackie as JACKY CHAN. But if your into ole school Kung Fu with some drama you will like this, not the worst and still haven't seen the best so its hard to rate this one but I will give it 3 1/2 stars. As you can see I watch all types of films, so if you have something special that you like send me a recommendation.
