Placing less emphasis on kung fu action (although it does feature an amazing fight involving a stepladder) and more on spectacular stunts, this Jackie Chan comedy thriller is a Bondesque romp shot on location all over the globe. The idiotic plot has Chan playing a Hong Kong cop who is hired by both the CIA and Russian intelligence to recover a stolen nuclear warhead. The chase to get the weapon and capture a rogue CIA agent winds up in Melbourne where Chan is framed for murder and adds the police to his list of adversaries. As ever, the storyline is a thin excuse to string together a series of breathtaking action sequences.

Plot Summary
