Review
by Kozo:

A typical eighties product, this action-comedy featuring Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, and Sammo Hung is as slapdash and cheesy as they come. And as entertaining, too. Thomas (Jackie Chan) and David (Yuen Biao) are a couple of buddies living in Spain, where they spend their time practicing kung-fu and running their pet business: a fast food truck. When a beautiful pickpocket named Sylvia (former Miss Spain Lola Forner) runs off with their dough, the two find themselves embroiled in an adventure that could only exist in HK Cinema.

Our heroes befriend Sylvia despite her illicit ways, and make her one of their motley crew. However, various shady factions are after her for reasons unknown - and one of the primary pursuers is their old buddy Moby (Sammo Hung), a wacky private investigator whos chasing Sylvia for unknown employers.

The hows and whys of the plot mean very little. Its just an excuse for our heroes to run all over Spain in a variety of excellent action sequences, including some of the best fights Jackie Chan has ever participated in. His duel with Benny Urquidez, in particular, is astounding in its use of mano-a-mano fighting instead of Chan's usual prop-filled antics. Never mind that everyone in Spain speaks Cantonese - if you must, enjoy this picture for the simple reason that they dont make em like this anymore. (Kozo 1995/1997)
