"...[Chan] is in fine form -- nimble, fun and reserved. It's the best acting he's done in a while, which makes it all the more exhilarating to watch him dance through the well-choreographed fight scenes..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/18/1998

A box office smash, this film combines the comic stylings of funny-man Chris Tucker with the explosive action of superstar Jackie Chan. The two team up to battle the bad guys and, along the way, meet their fair share of dangerous situations.
