City Hunter (HK 1992)

Rating: ***
Director: Wong Jing
Cast: Jackie Chan, Joey Wang, Chingmy Yau, Leon Lai, Richard Norton, Ken Lo, Gary Daniels, cameo by Michael Wong

Based on the Japanese manga of the same name, Jackie Chan stars in the role of a girl-crazy P.I. named Ryo Saeba, a.k.a. "The City Hunter." He, his adorable assistant/adopted daughter (Joey Wang), and his sexy rival (Chingmy Yau) end up on a cruise ship trying to apprehend a runaway girl. Unfortunately, villainous Richard Norton and his flunkies have decided to hijack the boat and steal everyone's valuables. Naturally, Jackie and friends defy all odds and beat them. Excessively goofy and painful to watch at times, but great to look at. The highlight of the film is when Jackie turns into Chun Li from Street Fighter II (don't ask why). Chingmy Yau (with firearms!) and Joey Wang are gorgeous and Leon Lai is very slick as a lethal card player.
