-For the first time ever, brings together martial artist Jackie Chan and martial artist Jet Li
-South Boston teen Jason Tripitikas is a fan of the martial arts films and he awakens from a dream of a battle between the Monkey King and celestial soldiers in the clouds. When he visits a pawnshop in Chinatown to buy Wuxia DVDs and finds a golden staff. On his way home, Jason is harassed by some bullies who try to use him to help rob the pawn shop owner. The owner, Hop, tries to fight off the thieves and is shot. He tells Jason to deliver the staff to it's rightful owner and he flees with the staff. He is cornered on the roof and the bullies almost shoot him, but he is pulled off the roof by the staff and falls backwards onto the asphault.
