 So Snake Plissken, James Bond and Rocky Balboa exist within the reality of this movie and are considered to join up with our team of mercenaries but unfortunately they go with a ragtag team of criminal-types including a couple of seemingly gay fellows, a guy who looks like an Asian Elvis(or is he the Asian James Bond?), a guy named 'Greased Lightnin' who wears his sunglasses at night, a couple of ass-kicking kung-fu ladies and others. Oh and Jackie Chan and his girlfriend end up sorta helping out along the way. This movie is basically an insane Hong Kong version of THE DIRTY DOZEN that is supposed to take place during World War II despite there being 70's muscle-cars covered in swastikas that appear toward the finale and I think most of it takes place in Germany?? Of course I could be wrong about that since not a whole lot of what happens makes much sense. This does have my favorite type of ending for any movie where almost everyone dies. There's a spoof of(homage to?) THE ROAD WARRIOR. The music is lifted directly from HALLOWEEN and PLANET OF THE APES at times and the film goes from standard action movie with exploding stuff to kung fu to what seems like a spaghetti-western to a musical scene to a haunted house/horror movie-motif to wacky comedy. Basically this might be the best movie ever with little time to get very bored watching it. Of course if you stop and try to figure out what it all means your head may explode but that's way more fun than your standard martial-arts flick and may be my favorite Jackie Chan flick ever! AKA DRAGON ATTACK

I used to own this VHS tape but it managed to destroy a VCR on me which I think only goes to show the raw power of this film!:
