Jackie seems to have 63 jobs, among them is a mechanic, a driver, and a vehicle inspector.
It is 30 minutes before the first fight, (it is a good fight admittedly).
Cougar wants to erase Jackie’s small garage and racing operation and nearly kills his fambly in the process. Somehow a naughty bunch of Yakuza get involved, and everything culminates in the BIG RACE at the end.
Yay. Jackie wins! (Seriously a Jackie Chan film that finihses with a race and not a fight. That’s like a porno ending with a how-to session about flower arranging.)
1/ Are there any “WOW!” fights?
2 fights. The choreography suggests that these weren’t as much a priority as the racing scenes. Jackie never seems to be in any danger.
2/ Are there any “WOW!” stunts?
Mainly car stuff. I’d watch Bond films if I wanted car stuff. (Hint: I don’t watch Bond films.)
3/ Which Jackie is it? Serious / Whimsical / Cocky…
4/ Does he get to use Jackie-exclusive toys?
These are all his vroom-vroom toys.
5/ Do stolen relics come up?
6/ Are there hot chicks (that usually can’t act)?
They’re actually OK in this. What is it about hot chicks and fast cars?
7/ Is there a blooper reel over the credits?
8/ Were there injuries on the shoot? Severity?
More car stuff. Yawn.
9/ Has he still got it?
Probly, who knows? Who cares when he’s wearing a helmet all film?
10/ Is it a “Jackie Chan” film, or just one he is in?
A Jackie Chan “This one’s just for me” film. (I’ll give you this one freebie for all the great films you’ve given over the years.)
Final Rating – 5 / 10. I don’t watch Jackie Chan films for car racing and hastily arranged fight scenes.
