I think this is the film that brought me into asian movie world in my early teens. Some things never change, I still adored the hell out of this kung-fu comedy full of childish innocence and lightness. This time I didn't run outside to practice kung-fu after watching it, and this makes me sad. Fuck you, life.

A odd but fun film with a daft plot, some good fight scenes, and some colourful characters. Perhaps not in the top tier of Chan films, but this is really likeable if you're in the right mood. Who'd have thought residents of Barcelona would speak Cantonese so proficiently?

Even though it's more of an action-comedy than a full-blown martial arts spectacular, it still has pretty bad pacing, with much longer stretches of situational comedy (& Spaniards "speaking" Cantonese) than I was expecting. But even if the action is poorly spread throughout, it's still good enough stuff to wait around for. That throwdown at the end between Jackie and Benny the Jet is the kind of thing you can't even believe is humanly possible even when it's happening right there on the screen.

Are you willing to wade through 90 minutes of lame comedy and a Scooby Doo-like plot complete with evil counts and castles and kidnappings, to get to maybe 15 minutes of pretty cool action? I was, but only because I have nothing better to do with my time.

Not very action-packed for a Chan movie, with pretty cheesy comedy and a silly story, but I still feel good watching the antics of the Chan, Hung and Biao trio; they make me happy. A lot of the physical comedy hearkens back to the likes of Buster Keaton, which makes me happy too. And the final fights were awesome, especially Jackie vs Benny the Jet (see also Dragons Forever).

Pretty goofy with little action. Jackie vs. Urquidez was fairly satisfying however. I have a HUGE spoft-spot for this flick, though... it's just so damn charming.

An ok flick with some typically dumb comedy and a couple of good fights. Jackie's fabled encounter with Benny Urquidez is HIGHLY overrated though.

Fun and very entertaining action-comedy starring Jackie Chan, Biao Yuen and Sammo Hung, the last one sporting a ridiculous perm, set in gorgeous Barcelona. The three have amazing chemistry together, which makes this a pleasure to watch. The end fight between Jackie Chan and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez is worth the watch alone.

Nonsense but the three leads together are great.

The story's fairly incomprehensible - something about a rape, and a pickpocket who's an heiress, and a castle, or something. Not that it really matters in a movie where every Spanish thug knows martial arts and elderly Spanish matriarchs drive fast cars and speak colloquial Cantonese. It's just a freaking fun time. The synergy between the leads during fight sequences particularly shines.

Nothing happened for the first 30 minutes so I skipped ahead to the final fight which was good, but I read it was the best of all time, which is probably an exaggeration

Pure fun and the jokes still land. Sometimes the movie ends a scene a whole 3-5 minutes too early and the plot (how small it is) gets confusing in the following scene. But the comedic action and final fight scenes are master class even to this day. Jackie's final fight scene with a pro kickboxer is top 10 amazing on an acting and choreography level (maybe because they weren't pulling punches)

Kind of a "let's see what we can get away with" style of movie: thin plot filled with bizarre sketch comedy and a horrible voice dub. But the part that really works -- and if you're viewing this movie, you're likely already a fan -- is the impressive choreography, not only in the fight scenes but in a few other odd moments as well.

Hung, Chan and Yuen reunite for another broad comedy, after the similar Project A, reconfirming their fall from grace. Has few, short and lazily choreographed fights, with the ending fight sequence a bit more invested (though more about acrobatics than genuine ferocity). Most of the time it's just really low brow and sexist.

The martial arts and (mostly car) stunt sequences are few and far between, and mostly brief at that. Instead we must bear long sequences of a silly throwaway plot. This is regarded as one of Jackie Chan's best films, but I do not rate it highly. It's far from the likes of the original "Police Story". And Tony Jaa's later films kicked a hell of a lot more ass than this.

The most commendable thing about this is actually its bizarre visual aesthetics, colour scheme and wardrobe. More a goofy comedy than an action/fighting film, and the martial artists underplay their skill to suit character. As such it was a little disappointing in that respect.

Most of the movie is low-tier passable comedy peppered with some good stunts there and there. Though just as I was starting to find the end was dragging on, I was surprised by a final fight scene that was something else. In itself it was very well choreographed with hard hits and impressive speedy counters. By Jackie Chan standard it was fresh and new. No flashy kung fu styles, almost no using of prompts and stunts, just a mostly face to face fight. Loved that his character really struggled

Watched the dub which lost a lot of the charm. Good camaraderie with the three men. Fav scene: the choreography in the final fights which really felt evenly matched.

The comedy in this one falls a little flat but its more than made up for because it has awesome stunts and amazing fights. It stars three of my favorite martial artists/actors, Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and my favorite Yuen Biao.

Terrible name, but has some really excellent fighting scenes esp. Jackie's fight with Benny "The Jet" Urquidez.
