Jackie Chan is a legend and he does all his own stunts. Kinda. Some more recent films show obvious signs of stand-ins however this one is his last where he claims all are his.

Ok, yes, they probably are and some are so effortless that you forget how dangerous they are, especially for a 59 year old!

However as a film this is pants. Really small kids might like some of it and be bored by other bits, adults might be confused by the strange inter-personal stories that don’t seem to make any sense. I was disappointed with the attempt at a ‘serious’ plot – at times – since this is clearly an Armour Of God tribute but without the humour. Sorry, I’m a massive fan of Jackie and his skills but this was dire.

He and his crew are incredibly fit and stuff but as a film this is just not watchable.

DVD Extras: none.
