Wheels on Meals

A+ for action, D- for dubbing.

Released in 1984, before Jackie Chan was allowed to speak for himself, this oddly-named romp still holds up for its slapstick comedy and busted-knuckles brawls.

The highlight in this Sammo Hung-directed flick shot on location in Spain is an extended, late-in-the-game showdown between Chan and kickboxing titan Benny Urquidez.

At one point, a spin-kick is so fast it blew out a row of candles for real.

And the film’s title?

It was flipped from the more conventional Meals on Wheels, because the studio had two straight titles that started with the letter M flop.
