"Two times the Jackie, One half as fun!"
2 stars

Hey! It's a new Jackie Chan movie! Hey! I got this on video last year! What the hell?

The practice of releasing old Jackie Chan movies has got to stop. It's not like he's not making any new ones, but it would seem that Jackie's agent thinks that we'll forget who Jackie Chan is if we don't see him in a movie every three months. So we get stuff like this, which actually came out in 1992.

The Plot: Jackie plays twin brothers, one of whom is a pianist, and one of whom is a gangster. They get mixed up. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Jackie Chan is stealing plots from the Olsen twins.

Sadly, this one relies a bit TOO much on the comedic aspects, and is a little skimpy in the action department. Yes, Jackie, we go to see your movies for the COMEDY. So Jackie gets into wacky misunderstandings with women, and women bop him on the head with their purses. But now there's TWO of him! It's twice the purse-hittings! Ecch.

I wish that the folks in charge of releasing these films would realise that we can remember Jackie Chan for an extended period of time. I've been watching Jackie Chan's old movies since I was 14, and I'm pretty sure that everyone in America knows who he is. Look at Schwartzeneggar. Guy hasn't made a movie since "Batman and Robin". He hasn't made a GOOD movie in years. But I'm sure that as soon as his next movie comes out (which, incidentally, is about him facing off against the devil) people won't be saying "Who's this Arnold fella?" Wait until a GOOD Jackie Chan movie is made before you release it. We'll remember.

Watch him if you like his movies, but it won't make any new converts.
