Jackie Chan's best movie. A wonderful heartwarming comedy story, and awesome fight scenes. A rope factory! What more could you ask for?

One of the few Chan movies that can stand on its own even if you excised the action sequences! Great period flavor of a 1930's gangster film is a faithful retelling of Frank Capra's Lady for a Day. Except with fistfights! Comedic situations and a musical number with the radiant Anita Mui occupy most of the screentime, but the few action set pieces are all among the best of Chan's career. In particular I love the fight in the tea room which features amazing choreography executed with balletic beauty & precision, and is funny to boot! Then there are the rickshaws and finally the incredible jaw-dropping & side-splitting battle at the rope factory. Now that's entertainment! Ranks #7 among my all-time favorite Jackie Chan flicks.

Jackie Chan makes a rare acknowledge of his own mortality by experimenting with higher drama quolient and some lovely sleight-of-hand in place of major stunts - the result is electrifying.
