Following the success of Rumble…, Chan was clearly targeting the recent western converts with this Hong Kong actioner. He might be playing a celebrity chef this time around, but Chan sticks to a predictable formula, once again butting heads with some nefarious gangsters.
The decision to shoot the movie in the English language leaves it feeling like a slightly inauthentic hybrid though, rather than the gloriously silly romp fans had come to expect.
Injuries sustained? Yet another breakage for Chan’s robust schnozz.
