    He can`t remember who he is, but if he does, he`s dead!

    Left for dead after a brutal CIA double-cross, a lone commando (Chan) must struggle to regain his memory and expose an international espionage ring, before they can unleash a powerful and lethal new energy source.

    With the aid of two beautiful sidekicks, Jackie fights his way across continents and faces armed assassins and sinister plots at every turn. For blistering action and adrenaline-pumping excitement, nobody does it better than Jackie.

    Wow. The first time I saw this I was literally on the edge of my seat and it still shocks me now. The film itself is one of Jackie`s bigger budget flicks and it shows. This is still vintage Chan though, as he dispatches his enemies in his normal wacky comic style. The fight scenes are fantastic, and are definately some of his best. Check out the fight on the rooftop with the Chinese bloke and the spring-legged bloke. I was gripping the seat at the sight of Jackie almost falling off the top of a 25-storey building numerous times. The roof jump (one of his personal favourite stunts) is breathtaking. I was reading his biography the other day, and he says in that he didn`t use a wire! It was a 250 foot drop - he is insane.

    The picture is presented in a 2.35:1 anamorphic print, which is clean and crisp. There are no noticable artefacts or glitches, and the picture is very stable.

    Audio is fairly good - the Dolby Digital 5.1 track packs a lot of punch - literally. Every thud and crack is faithfully reproduced. Some of the scenes are dubbed (notably the first scenes), but this does not detract from the action. There is also a 2.0 channel Dolby Surround track which lacks some bass, and also the rear channels are not used anywhere near as much as in the 5.1 track. My advice - upgrade to DD 5.1!

    Extras are sparse, with the only thing being a standard trailer. There are various subtitle options, but these cannot be counted as extra features, because they are standard on just about every UK and US disc.

    Overall then, a class film, especially if you like Jackie Chan`s style, but a dull disc. Still, at least we get a 5.1 track and a good anamorphic transfer. Buy it for the film, because that`s all you get!
