As much as it pains me..By Johnlouis Swaine from Colchester, Essex , 14 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm afraid I have to pan a Jacky Chan film. This film is entirely without merit. The Camerawork is of a standard so abysmal that I'd warrant it had been carried out by high school students and to further the overall feeling of mediocrity is apparently executed using a Hi-8 video camcorder.
The acting is ridiculous - the voice acting even more absurd. This complete lack of ability is further exacerbated by the hideously poor sound quality of the dubbing, leading to clear passages of audio whilst no-one is speaking being shattered by crackly moans and nonsensical dialogue.
Not even Jacky Chan's superlative martial arts can save this film. It literally is unwatchable. I question absolutely, the reasons why it was ever brought to DVD.
If you want early Jacky Chan watch Police Story - Rumble in Hong Kong is a disgraceful blemish on his career. I guess every actor has to start somewhere but it doesn't mean a viewer should be subjected to this. Better left on the reels in some Mong Kok movie theatre, which no doubt played it once before moving onto a feature that was less of an insult to the celluloid it was recorded on.
Considering this a Jacky Chan film is like judging Nicholas Cage's 8th birthday party home-video to be movie-worthy. Stay clear.

Cash inBy a customer from London , 24 Jan 2007The movie hardly features Jackie Chan this is just an attempt to fool the public and make money off Jackie Chan.
rip offBy raymond chow from the north , 13 Oct 2005very early jackie chan bit part movie repackaged and released after the success of rumble in the bronx. has nothing to recommend it even for chan fans. avoid.
a very old movieBy a customer from cheshire , 29 Sep 2005one of the early moies was not impressed at all.
Jackie Chan Rip OffBy drunkenmaster (479 reviews) from Merthyr Tydfil, , 11 Jun 2005I knew before renting this what to expect. I have seen most of Jackie Chan's films, and this is obviously a cash in from the success of Rumble In The Bronx. Original title for this film was Police Woman. In it Jackie plays one of the main heavys, with the most ridiculous black blotch on his cheek. (Is it supposed to make him look more sinister?)
One of Jackies first adult acting roles he was just happy to be in the movies at the time. Very embarrassing for him now, I guess. This is not the worse martial arts film I have ever seen. Just possibly the worse from Jackie Chan. I would like to name check some of the other stars of the film, but this print only bothers to translate Jackis name into English.
Later Jackie would get his big break with Lo Wei, and later still take control of his own films. This is a poor effort. Not a Jackie Chan film at all. He barely fights, and when he does it has none of his later style.
