Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The likeable and graceful Chan directs, sings and performs jaw-dropping stunts. Few of his American or Austrian rivals attempt a fraction of that."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Primo Jackie--excitement and laughs aplenty."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Not one of Hong Kong action giant Jackie Chan's greatest movies, but it's entertaining and provides loads of martial arts fights and dangerous stunts."
‑ Elspeth Haughton, Apollo Guide
"In the course of the story, about drug traffickers, Mr. Chan gets three separate birthday cakes thrown into his face, and participates in several elaborately staged gun fights and car chases."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Solid Jackie Chan. More stunts than martial arts, but still cool."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Algumas das gags (como a confusão com os telefones) caem no vazio, mas as seqüências de ação, como sempre esperamos de Chan, são formidáveis."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Chan is jumping everywhere, breaking through windows and using whatever he finds as a weapon. So, this ain't his best film, but you can't deny that he's an amazing performer, and the picture remains great entertainment."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
