| Great Jackie Chan movie
Jackie Chan's movie has become modernized since Thunderbolt, and his association with Mitsubishi motors stronger. This movie is the end point or the apex of Jackie Chan's Hong Kong production before he really broke into Hollywood with Rush Hour. Most if not all of his movie since has been of international caliber, not confined to the Asian market.

Jackie Chan is a secret operations commando. He loses his memory while on a mission in South Africa. He gets picked up by the local tribe, then meets a rally driver and saves her brother's life. He becomes somewhat of a local celebrity, but his old colleagues, and South African intelligence is after him.

Jackie Chan is the first Asian asides from the Japanese to successfully created movies of international caliber, and he did this all by himself. The production of this movie is clearly beyond that of traditional Hong Kong movies, and refined to the point of international standards. The movie is beautifully shot, with exciting action scenes that only Jackie Chan seems to be able to create.

This movie has bit more action, and less comedy. Viewer's opinion may vary depending on which side of Jackie Chan movie they prefer to see more of.

Trivia

Quotes

Morgan's hitman: You've got two choices. Give us the disk and jump off.
Morgan's Hitman: Or number two, we take the disk and throw you off.
Who Am I?: I like the third choice: I keep the disk, and I throw you both off.


Goofs

When Jackie runs away after getting the computer disk, his clothes change back to those he was wearing before he changed into the company uniform.


Crazy Credits

In the tradition of every Jackie Chan film, outtakes appear under the end credits. All of Jackie's outtakes involve bloopers only. The only injury on the outtakes is a stunt driver being brought out on a stretcher.


Alternate Versions

The American version is cut by 9 minutes. Scenes omitted from the American version: -In the Hong Kong version, we do not see Jackie's unit get double crossed right after the mission is over (The American edit shows the unit getting double crossed after the mission). When the mission is over, it immediately cuts to the CIA briefing room. The scene with the double cross is shown during a flashback.

  • There are more scenes with Jackie and his time with the African tribe. These include:
  • Jackie talks in Chinese most of the time (The American version shows him talking in English as the film was shot in English).
  • A conversation with tribal child Baba about the sun and the moon in hopes of finding out what happened to him.
  • A confrontation with Jackie and a lion after Jackie picks up one of the lion's cubs.
  • A ceremony where Jackie is made a member of the tribe.
  • Before he leaves his tribal friends to go journey to find out his true identity, he does a traditional tribal dance for them and they return the favor with a dance of their own.
-The road race which Jackie helps Yuki and her snakebitten brother win is longer in the Hong Kong version. -Jackie and Yuki talk after the race where Jackie is finally able to speak clear and concise to her. He tells her he had a hard time speaking to her before because of the herbs he chewed to help neutalize her brother's snakebite numbed his mouth. Afterwards, they climb into Yuki's big rig and head for the hospital. -Yuki tells Jackie at the hospital he can borrow her brother's suite while he is in the city. -The power station explosion scene in the Hong Kong version is longer. -Jackie's journey getting from the hotel suite to the hotel car is longer in the Hong Kong version. -All instant replay scenes are omitted in the American version.
