    Yes, Jackie Chan (the star) can run up corners, scale large fences, and beat up mass bad guys with ladders, chairs, or anything readily or not so readily accessible. He does all his own stunts. Almost all movies with him in them are the same... he runs up corners, jumps stuff, does flips, and punches. Does that help?

    that was very helpful...except a few things.

    1.) its not a kung fu film
    2.) jackie chan is not in the film
    3.) there's no fight scenes in the film





    does anyone have a serious answer?

    moviesonline says:

    In Takeshi Kitano's quirky second film, Masaki (Masahiko Ono), a quiet baseball-playing gas station attendant, runs into trouble with the local yakuza. Masaki's baseball coach, Iguchi (Takahito Iguchi), turns out to be a former yakuza and attempts to straighten out the situation but only winds up making things worse. In order to stand up for himself, Masaki, along with his friend Kazuo (Minoru Iizuka), heads to Okinawa to buy a gun.

    There the two encounter tough guy Uehara (Kitano, acting under his alias, Beat Takeshi) and his all-too-loyal henchman, Tamagi (Katsuo Tokashiki), who are both in trouble with the yakuza as well. After various odd incidents, Uehara helps Masaki and Kazuo acquire a gun. When they attempt to use the weapon, however, the result sets the groundwork for an explosive climax.

    yeah i just didnt really understand why things were happening

    most of the stuff just seemed irrelevant..and everyone in the film look the same, so i couldnt make out who was who and what not

    A four-person coupling was hardly a new concept, but every time you add another person to the coupling, you increase the difficulty of coordinating the effort. However, it didn’t take too long for us to find our rhythm. Boyce and Goldfur would thrust as Quickpaw withdrew, then they’d draw back as Quickpaw would stroke forward. As I was propped up, I couldn’t move much, so I leant back with my eyes closed, simply enjoying the experience. My hands fondled Goldfur’s lovely firm breasts, my fingers teasing the nipples until they leaked milk all over them, making them slippery.
