Debbie's Review: This
was the last thing Jackie worked on when he was still under contract to
Lo Wei. After shooting only a scene or two, he went to work for Golden
Harvest, leaving Hyena 2 unfinished. The unscrupulous Lo went ahead and
finished the film without Jackie, using a double and some left-over
footage from Fearless Hyena, along with some stolen footage from
Drunken Master. The result is simply disastrous: a boring, disjointed,
unintelligible mess. However, there are two scenes that are worth
seeing: first is a betting contest in which one team dares the other to
complete a difficult task. Jackie comes up with a nifty sequence where
he and his partner wriggle in and out of his jacket, sometimes both
sharing it at once. Very funny. The other entertaining scene is a brief
fight with a female opponent. Instead of trying to punch or kick the
girl, he steals kisses. Of course this would get him into serious
trouble for sexual harassment nowadays, but, hey, this was the 80s!
Jackie was so mad at Lo for finishing the film
without him that he went to court to try to block its release, but
had to drop the case in order to get out of his contract with Lo, and sign with
Golden Harvest. Besides the scenes I have described, the film is pretty
much a waste…don’t spend your money on this one. Rent it instead.
Fan1986's Review: This is the only JC movie I had to turn off.
The only movie of Jackie's that I have seen that sucked. The picture was
bad and JC was barely in it. It steals footage from other JC movies and
plops it into this messy crap fest movie. A couple o.k. fights, but only
see this one if you are a hardcore fan like me.
Score: 1/10,if that
Adam Celander's Review:
One of the worst movies ever. Jackie is barely in the film insted theres
a double. The martial arts scenes are decent.
Review: I just say, I don't like this movies, but as a Jackie Fan I must
see it, And like a said, it's no fun see 30% of the film with Jackie
chan then the next 70% no jackie chan. And the call it a Jackie Chan
Joe's Review: One of the few Chan movies I just
can't watch in one sitting, just horrid!
