This is one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies!
The original has been cut so much!
(2 out of 5 stars)
"I really like the original movie. But this release has been so much cut. I don't know what was the reason for it. But some really funny scenes (like a lion chasing Jackie) don't show up. Try to find uncut version."
US Film Industry Screws Us Again

"Well, as usual, the US Film Industry screwed us again out of what could have been a great Jackie movie. For some reason, the US Film people think that Americans are incapable of understanding or enjoying the full version of any of Jackie's movies. It has been a frustration of many Jackie fans for YEARS! Scenes cut to save time, also ruin the continuity of the movie. Important scenes are cut to squeeze a movie into that 90 minute time frame. Any of you who have ever seen the Hong Kong versions of ANY of Jackie's movies know what I'm talking about. Many times it changes the mood and meaning of the whole movie. Who Am I? was a good movie, but the HK version is 100% better than the US version. I just wish they would release it the way it was meant to be release...COMPLETE!"
Look, Ma, it even has a plot

"Nobody actors, death defying stuts, hilarious momments, subpar plot..What does this all add up to?...the elements of a Jackie Chan movie that make the movies entertaining. Who am I? is one of the many movies where Jackie takes the action level higher. The fight scenes are well done, and it even has a plot (Well, a plot that's better than some JC movies, anyway). As usual, Jackie's fancy kicking is more interesting to watch than his co-stars acting abilities. Even though I do think Michelle Ferre has serious potential to be a better actress if she goes that way (She was hired on a whim by JC and this is her only film). Cable got a huge break as it was able to premere this JC flick. Still, it suffers from the American editing job that has been put on many of Chan's films. It makes me wonder why they can't release his films in their original length. They could probably make more money rather than $16 million. I would've like to have seen this film, as well as Operation Condor and Mr Nice Guy, in its entirety. Still, Who Am I? has enough plot and action to keep JC lovers entertained. I rank it up there with the Police Story movies."
A very pleasant surprise

"This is a great flick for both devotees and novice fans of Jackie Chan.Why Jackie Chan's U.S. distributors didn't release this in theaters is beyond me. Before I saw it, I thought that it would be c**p, but hell, it's Jackie, so I gave it a whirl. Though the first half hour is slow (by Jackie Chan standards, at least), once this flick gets going it ranks right up there with Drunken Master II and Police Story. The escape from the police with a rope and bucket, the chase and fight in the streets of Amsterdam (what Jackie can do wearing of wooden shoes...), and the final fight on the roof are amazing examples of action and comedic artistry. Stuff that ONLY Jackie Chan could pull off. There's even a car chase scene that breathes some life into the old warhorse of action movie cliches. I feared that Jackie Chan might be slowing down as he reached 45, maybe doing less dangerous stunts...no way.The actors are terrible, the plot non-existent, the dialog silly, the production values shoddy at times, but one might as well complain the writing is poor in Playboy. You're there to look at the pictures, and Who Am I? has some that took my breath away."
Thin plotline, yet, extremely funny and enjoyable.

"This is one of Jackie Chan's best movies. Although maybe suffering from a thin plotline, the action, suspence, comedy, and of course, the Jackie Chan trademark of death defying stunts are all in this movie. Differencing from the movie everyone seems to compare it with, Who Am I? is a true Jackie Chan film, unlike the American film Rush Hour.Of all the Jackie Chan movies I have thus seen, Who Am I? gets my vote for the best Jackie Chan movie, perhaps over many other types of movies as well. Its one of the rare types of movies I actually want to purchase after I rented and view it several times, and Who Am I? turned me from a "Chan-fan" to a "Chan-aholic" (as said by a fellow reviewer). Although plotline is somewhat soft and may be confusing at first, it all fits in as the beautiful scenes travel from Africa to Europe. This film makes you feel like Chan is once again risking his life to make us happy. Even the music (which I am now looking for the soundtrack) is great, and taught me that Jackie Chan can sing! (no kidding!)Over all, this movie deserves a 5 star rating, because Chan should deserve it in this humourous and exciting film. I reccomend you don't pass this one up, because its a disappointment already that this film isn't as famous as it has the potential to be."
