The masters of restored re-releases, Eureka Entertainment have added “WHEELS ON MEALS” to their increasingly impressive catalogue of martial arts action classics! A spectacular, non-stop action comedy starring Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao, “Wheels on Meals” is presented from a brand new 2K restoration for the first time ever on Blu-ray in the UK as part of the Eureka Classics range on 18th March 2019. Available with a Limited Edition slipcase and booklet [4000 copies only].
Perhaps the greatest martial-arts comedy of all time, Sammo Hung’s “Wheels on Meals”, stars Hung, Jackie Chan, and Yuen Biao as the most exciting triple act in action movie history! Fast-food chefs Thomas (Chan) and David (Biao) find themselves cooking up trouble when detective Moby (Hung) involves them in the case of a missing heiress. The three friends need all of their daring and physical dexterity when they end up in hot water facing a triple serving of danger.
Also starring Lola Forner (Armour of God) and Benny “The Jet” Urquidez (Dragons Forever), who faces off against Chan in an incredible fight sequence that is legendary amongst martial-arts film fans, “Wheels on Meals” has to be seen to be believed.
