This dreadful Jackie Chan caper (made in the early '90s and redubbed in '98) kicks off in 1965 with identical twins John and Boomer Ma separated when a gangster grabs the latter from his mother's arms. The infant is later dumped and grows up streetwise and well-equipped for fighting the thugs with whom he's soon to become acquainted. His brother is a successful composer and conductor. Years later, the twins (Chan) are reunited when an episode in Boomer's troubled life spills into John's ordered world. The script (as translated) is facile, the dubbing atrocious and the direction all over the place; the cast is mostly inadequate and the editing haphazard. What you don't expect from a Chan movie, though, is such poorly choreographed and shot fight sequences as these here.
