This movie can be a bit painful at times, but overall it's an enjoyable movie. It's not quite the same as old classic Jackie Chan movies, but it's better than such works as Tuxedo for example. There is an equal mix of well known actors from Europe/America, and Hong Kong. Anthony Wong is an all-time favorite of mine, even though his role here does him no justice. And it's always nice to see Christy Chung in anything, although her role is far too short. To bring the US audience there are favorites such as Claire Forlani (Mallrats) and Julian Sands (Naked Lunch).

Any Jackie Chan fan should definatly see this at least once. 7/10 stars.
