Golden Harvest hired Director James Glickenhaus after his success with movies such as The Exterminator (1980), but rifts began to surface between Glickenhaus and Jackie Chan and his team during shooting. This would lead to Chan re-shooting sections of the movie for an alternate Asian release version of the movie. See more »

Dissatisfied and immensely disappointed with the American version, Jackie Chan went back and reshot and added new sections of the film for the Hong Kong version, including the addition of a whole new subplot. See more »
I DIDNT HATE IT! which really surprised me, because everyone on IMDb said this movie totally sucked and I went in expecting the worst. Sure Jackie is miscast, but other than the addition of curse words, his character isnt any darker than in Crime Story or Police Story 2. The action is slow, but better than any of the American action junk I've ever seen. Plus, there is tons of full-frontal nudity! Bet you didnt expect that from a Jackie Chan movie, did ya? I can understand why JC was disappointed with it, because it is nowhere near as good as almost any of his other 80's-90's movies, but it aint all that bad. Go in thinking you will hate it, and you just might like it.
