Nightmare in Shanghai

A boatcruise on Huang Pu was the worst experience of my father during his

XiTang, where mission impossible were produced partially. However at one
time Tom Cruise jumps from a window in this quiet village and ends up in the
heart of Shanghai, that kind of stunts are only possible on film!
