In my opinion Jackie Chan made it. This is really a very good film with good fight scenes. The fight scenes are very typical to Bruce Lee, but Jackie can do it too. The fim is really not typical to other Jackie movies but it is great. Jackie is showing that he is able to be a new Bruce Lee in this thrilling movie! A must see for all!

Jackie Chan's first attempt to break into the American market doesn't really stand up when compared to Drunken Master, Fearless Hyena or any of the other early classics he was making in Hong Kong at the time. But, nevertheless, it is good for what it is. Jackie is the son of a chinese resturant owner who refuses to let his son fight. However, Jackie has other ideas and is secretly learning kung-fu from his uncle - a chiropracter (apologies for spelling). Whilst defending his father from the local mob he comes to the attention of the mob leader who needs a fighter for the upcoming Battlecreek Brawl. He sets about blackmailing Jackie into fighting for him...which he does!!! The fights aren't as fast or as fluid as they are in Jackie Chan's Jackie Chan films, and this just shows how little control Jackie had over the choreography. However, there are a few scenes in which Jackie gets to show what he's made of and the fact he speaks in English gives it something special.

I think it's unfair to call this a bad film. It's Jackie's first American outing, and it's true he wasn't allowed to coreograph the fights, but I think he shows his physical talents all the time. Just look at the introduction! Jackie punches and kicks and jumps and flips his way through the whole film, just as we love to see him! And the jazz inspired score is nice, especially compared with his early Asian films. The DVD is great! Picture, sound and extras are excellent. Over all I think it's one of his best films, and I own 25.

This is by no means a classic Jackie Chan film, nor is it his worst film either. It lies somewhere in the middle. Fans of Jackie might be slightly disapointed with the whole affair, as it doesn't have any noteworthy stunts or his usual over the top fighting scenes. However, this also means that the film makes a little more sense then Jackie's usual offerings.
Set in the early mob days, The premise to this film, is that Jackie is made perticipate in an all out bare knuckle brawl competition when his girlfriend is kidnapped by local hoods. That's about as complex as the plot gets. Thankfully there are a few good bits of humor in this film but some times the pace is a bit slow. The fight scenes are actually punch ups rather then Kung Fu and seem a little bland compared to his other movies. If your the type of person who buys Chan films, then this is a good one to ad to your collection. The acting is a lot better then we usually get from a chan film and because it's american, the production values are noticably higher.
