The film makers assume Hans is nuts but can’t pass up the chance to go along on a troll hunt. Which is when they learn that everything he’s told them is true.
I should point out that in this movie, Jackie Chan attempts to outdo is formerly sometimes nude female co-star by featuring prolonged exposure of his own bare ass.
