Director: Samo Hung

More inane silliness from the Lucky Stars gang, spiced up by the amazing fights and stunts that you expect from Samo Hung, Jackie Chan, and Yuen Biao. Too bad there just aren't more of them and less of the Lucky Stars. Police officer Yuen Biao gets kidnapped by Japanese gangsters, and Jackie Chan pulls the Lucky Stars in to assist him. A surprisingly sexy Sibelle Hu is in charge of the operation and she of course becomes the victim of pranks at the hands of the perverted Lucky Stars gang. But she does kick ass, especially when she squares off with buffed up Michiko Nishiwaki at the end of the film. Samo is great as always, and Jackie's brief moments in the film are also brilliant - especially when he's pitted against a pigtailed Dick Wei. Also, some of the music was lifted from "Tron" (1982) of all things. Like the other Lucky Stars films, watch the first twenty minutes and the last twenty minutes, and skip all of the ludicrous slapstick in the middle.
