While shooting the hot air balloon jump, Chan skydove out of a plane and landed on top of the balloon instead of jumping off a cliff as is seen in the movie. For the shot of him jumping off of the cliff, the crew rigged him up to a wire as he had no experience of B.A.S.E. jumping. See more »
In many of the wide shots of the chase sequence, especially after the explosion, you can clearly see that only one person (the stunt driver) sits in the car. See more »

Why are you looking at me like that? You think women are good for nothing. I was runner-up in last year's European Women shooting, you'll be safe with me.
Only two women took part in that contest

The original ending theme in the Asia version (China and Japan) is the song "lorelei" sung by Alan Tam and in America the theme was "Flight of the Dragon" Sung by Jackie Chan. See more »
Japanese theatrical cut (released on laserdisc by Pony Canyon) is based on the uncut Hong Kong version, but features the full original English dub. This also includes the English version of Alan Tam's end theme "Lorelei". Aside from this, there is an alternate outtakes montage during the end credits. See more »
This is one of Jackie Chan's best films. A good display of his acrobatics and fight skills at the beginning of the film to fighting 4 woman with high heels at the end. This was my first Jackie Chan film I saw that made me watch his other films.
The basic story is that an evil cult who wants all 5 pieces of the armor of god(I can't remember why they want it) knows only one person who is able to get the pieces, the "asian hawk"(Chan). They only have 2 pieces of the armour and to get Jackie to get the other 3 pieces, they kidnap his former girlfriend, lorelei(Kwan) who he still has feelings for, even though his best friend,Alan(tam) is dating her. Jackie and Alan must work together to try and find the armour and save her.
I recommend watching the original 94min version in Chinese(with english subtitles of course) than the u.s. english dubbed 86min version. Also this movie is where Jackie nearly died - Jumping to a tree on which the branch broke and fell onto a rock.
A good humoreous martial art film with alright fight scenes and a not bad plot. 8/10 for me. Recommended mainly for Jackie chan fans.
