Starring Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Nina Li Chi, Teddy Robin Kwan
Goofy. Action-packed. Fun.
Twin brothers, Ma Yau and Bok Min (both played by Chan), are separated at birth and go on to dramatically different lives. One becomes a world famous composer. The other is a low rent racer who gets mixed up with a local gang. Their lives intersect, as do their love interests, lounge singer Barbara (Cheung) and socialite, Tong Sum (Li Chi). It’s a great setup for some physical comedy and misunderstanding, which this film is full of. Chan is a marvel, and though the film doesn’t boast his best work, it does have an incredible finale in a car garage with the star facing off against a gang.
