Consensus: An entertaining Jackie Chan stunt-fest in which the impressive action sequences overcome the low production value and by-the-numbers plot.

Time Out

Chan's insistence on his own fallibility and vulnerability, taken with virtuoso scenes like the fight involving 101 domestic appliances, shows why he means more to his countless fans than six US action stars put together.

The whole point is Jackie Chan - and, like Astaire and Rogers, he does what he does better than anybody.

Very average stuff for Jackie standards, good fights and stunts. This introduced the man to America, which ended up being a cursed bless in many ways.

Jackie Chan rocks. Wow! What a non-stop fighting.
