Muscles, cop from Hong Kong, is in Japan chasing a bad HK cop. His cop partner gets taken by the ninja gang. Muscles gets his 5 old no-good friends from the orphanage to help find the bad cop. Lots of comedy and kung-fu fighting follows.
During a break in filming in Japan, Jackie Chan was actually chased down by a mob of fans who recognized him. The mob almost caused Chan's death when one of them grabbed a hold of his scarf and nearly strangled him as he ran away.
When the film was submitted for UK cinema a dialogue sequence (in which the men discuss raping the sleeping Barbara) was removed and an 11 sec cut made to shots of a car being broken into, and this print was then released on video. The same cuts (17 secs) were made to the 1999 widescreen video release and DVD releases are also similarly cut, though the dialogue has been replaced with less offensive material.
