Double Trouble

Staring in the type of role that his father perfected, Jaycee Chan, son of the martial artist and action comedy legend Jackie Chan, takes on the role of Jay a Taiwanese security guard in charge of guarding a legendary 400 year old painting. However when scantily clad female international thieves hatch their plan to steal the painting, Jay springs into action after he is wrongly accused of stealing the painting for himself.

In hot pursuit of the stolen painting and the art thieves hit girls in high heel stilettos, Jay's chase is cut short by Ocean, a Beijing security guard on holiday who misinterprets Jay's actions. The escaping thieves plant the rolled-­-up artwork in a handbag that is carried onto Ocean's tour bus, which leaves without Jay. Unable to catch the tour bus, Jay needs Ocean to retrieve the painting and Ocean needs Jay to get him back on his holiday tour. Their unlikely partnership and reliance on each another makes for one of the most memorable buddy duos in recent memory.

From the director of 'Let the Bullets Fly!', David Hsun-­-Wei Chang reveals a subtle talent for narrative pacing and sleek action sequences and willingly pays tribute to the action films that came before it. Despite a rather outlandish story, Chang attempts to promote a very real understanding in the unlikely comradery between Jay and Ocean; "Even though there looks like a big difference, we still all have the same cultural rots."
