PG-13 | | Action, Comedy
Fighting against pirates at the turn of the 20th century, the Hong Kong navy are failing miserably. It's up to Sergeant Lung (Jackie Chan) to take matters into his own hands.
The first movie in which Jackie Chan started using outtakes in the end credits, which is an idea he liked after working on The Cannonball Run (1981) in Hollywood.
Who is laughing like that?
Jaws: Me, sir.
Captain Chi: Do you know what you're going to do?
Jaws: To laugh one thousand times?
Captain Chi: Police, shoot him dead!
When Jackie Chan's character is being chased down an alley and escapes into a door, only to reappear in the alley once the guards have gone into the same door, you can tell a cut was made. Items in the background such as a cloth flapping in the wind move in a manner which indicates an obvious jump cut.
Outtakes from the film, including one of the takes from the famous clock tower scene
Large portions of the scene where fei (sammo) is playing mahjong and is found by the gangsters is cut from many international versions of the film - because it was felt that the game of mahjong isn't well known enough in many countries for it to be so prominently featured.
