L² Comment:
This movie is actually a cross-production of one hundred HK directors to create this for raising the donation of the Hong Kong Directors Association. Jackie Chan played the twins role and get himself involved in romance with Maggie Cheung & Nina Li. Who could have miss this movie anyway? Jackie Chan is lucky to be chosen as the lead role from these 100 directors to act in this movie, a legendary classic movie that never to be missed...
