Review

Our Score
It may be clumsily dubbed and have Vancouver standing in for New York, but this typical Jackie Chan outing is still very entertaining. Chan stars as a Hong Kong policeman visiting the Big Apple, where he joins his uncle in seeing off a gang of doltish villains. As ever, there's plenty of thrilling action, but Chan always manages to invest his set pieces with an element of balletic humour, so that you feel you are watching violent slapstick rather than expertly executed martial arts. Anita Mui and Françoise Yip are big stars back in Hong Kong, but, sadly, they are given little room for manoeuvre here.

Summary

A Hong Kong cop visits New York to attend the wedding of his uncle, who has just sold his market store to an entrepreneur. The policeman volunteers to stick around to help get the business running, but they soon fall foul of a local biker gang. Martial arts adventure, starring Jackie Chan, Anita Mui, Francoise Yip and Bill Tung. In Cantonese and English.
