The Accidental Spy (Te wu mi cheng)

the accidental spy official poster

Release year: 2001

Director: Teddy Chan

Screenwriter: Ivy Ho, Rod Dean (English adaptation)

Starring: Jackie Chan, Eric Tsang, Vivian Hsu, Min Kim, Hsing-Kuo Wo, Murat Yilmaz, Alfred Cheung, Lillian Ho, Tat-Ming Cheung

When Bei (Chan) stops a robbery at the shopping center where he works, it changes his life. The episode is covered by TV and his heroic actions convinces a dying business man, that he is his long lost son. Soon Bei is out on a quest full of adventures and dangers.

This is one of Jackie Chan’s (Rush Hour, 1998) Hong Kong movies and far from his best work. The story has some serious and dark moments but as with most of Chan’s movies, there is light-hearted humour. Especially from the actor’s ability to make a serious show out of fighting with just about any prop available. The movie was distributed international by Dimension, who besides dubbing it (poorly) to English changed parts of the dialogue and plot. But big fans of Chan and his inventive signature fighting-style will find that he doesn’t disappoint on that area, others may have more luck with watching another of the busy Chan’s many, many movies.
