Wheels on Meals (1984)

Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao play brothers working as fast food caterers in Barcelona when they befriend pick-pocketing street dame Gloria (Miss Spain’s Lola Forner) and soon things start to go haywire. They are pursued by a private investigator (Sammo Hung) and a flock of good-for-nothing hoodlums after a plot is revealed to stop Gloria from obtaining her inheritance. The confrontations with western fighters produce the film’s main highlights. The castle-based finale features Jackie Chan’s now-legendary encounter with kickboxing champ Benny “The Jet” Urquidez: a remarkable, hard-hitting fight sequence that, even today, stands as one of the best on-screen brawls ever recorded. (Three years later they would film a rematch for Dragons Forever). A Hong Kong action classic of the highest order.
