Did You Know?

When Jimmy goes through Mr. Devlin's address book looking for "Walter Strider", he finds phone numbers for Claudia Schiffer, Norman Schwarzkopf, Stephen Sondheim, and George M. Steinbrenner III (first names added). All of the numbers have special characters inserted to ensure that they are not real numbers that people might try to call.

Jimmy Tong: That's definitely not a rental.

User Review

Cut the wires!

Rating: 2/10

What a shame to see Jackie Chan's talents wasted with a bunch of kung fu wires to leap in the air with. The whole joy of watching his movies is the sheer talent and relentless energy he demonstrates while doing all of his own stunts. Leave the wires to those who really need them.
