The movie begins with its primary character Bei, a salesman employed at an athletic equipment and sporting goods store, who dreams of adventure, encountering suspicious behavior on the part of two men. Bei follows the men into an alleyway. He soon comes to the realization that the two men are robbing a jewelry store. Bei jumps into action in order to stop them from robbing the store. Not long after this scene, Bei meets Liu, a private detective who manages to convince Bei that he may be the son of a wealthy businessman from Korea. As if instantly, Bei is well on his way in the fulfillment of his dreams of travel and adventure. He travels to Korea and also Turkey. Bei is drawn deeper and deeper into a game of cat and mouse. He begins to conclude that he has become the key in locating a virus. There is a variety of personages which fight him along his path. The question remains: Will Bei prove successful in locating the virus on his own? This is a Jackie Chan movie. It is Chan-predictable; since you naturally are quite aware already that good will trump evil. It is easy enough, too, to determine the good guys. Jackie Chan performs his regular martial arts stunts. He drop-kicks some of the bad guys; takes time out of his day to save children and if he does get the girl he just does not go too far with the relationship. Again, all of the previously mentioned elements are characteristic of Chan-style movies; however, these same predictable traits are what keep Chan’s fans
