A Hong Kong detective suffers a fatal accident involving a mysterious medallion and is transformed into an immortal warrior with superhuman powers. Eddie Yang is a Hong Kong cop who is working with Interpol officer Arthur Watson in order to protect a gifted young child. Aware that the child holds a centuries-old medallion that could give him limitless powers, Snakehead and his band of criminals kidnap the child and head for Dublin. It isn't long before Eddie arrives in Ireland where he is teamed up with beautiful Interpol officer Nicole James, who also happens to be a former flame. Together Eddie, Nicole, and the bumbling Watson manage to track down the child, but after an accident in which Eddie appears to have died, it's up to the gifted boy to put the trusty medallion to work and resuscitate him. While Chan appears to have lost a bit of a bounce from his early days, he still pulls off moves that would leave most actors flatfooted. As is the case with most Chan films, hilarious outtakes and bloopers accompany the film's closing credits. This movie is rated PG-13 for action violence and some sexual humor.
