RIP OFF... BEWARE OF THIS FILM

"As some of the other viewers have already noted... this film does not star Jackie Chan (however, he did direct it). The movie is actually pretty good- but I am here to tell you that this (Brentwood Home Video) copy is horrible. You can even see people walking in front the screen during certain parts- the images are cut off due to it being filmed directly from a TV screen. Vintage Video released the same film in "Jackie Chan- Triple Punch Collection". The box set is cheap and the transfer is actually a trasfer- not a video of a TV screen. The quality is still low, but acceptable considering it is not digitally remastered. It is ashame that Amazon carries Brentwood- they should rethink carrying such a shady company. (Just so you know- the triple punch is not that great of a deal, the second movie "fantasy mission" is ridiculously poor by any standards).
All the above aside- the film should get some credit- it is not the fault of Hua Chen that his movie was pirated and deviously marketed. The movie IS good, the surrounding context is what makes this a rip off."

"Martial arts direction by the master. Worth the price for great action!"

"Do not believe the cover of the movie. This is not a Jackie Chan movie. You see him in a behind the scenes bit in the beginning, but that's it. As far as the movie itself, I've only seen it once and it wasn't good enough for me to not get so easily distracted from it. I can't really remember too much about it anymore. Not memorable."
