The Definitive Hong Kong Comedy
12 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

'Winners & Sinners' is not only the best Sammo Hung movie I've seen, but it's also the best altogether Hong Kong Comedy I've seen. The film combines elements of crime-comedies and Kung Fu films and has a surprisingly high amount of variety.

What also makes the film brilliant are the characters. Every single one of them is very memorable, particularly goofy 'Exhaust Pipe'. Teapot is a typical protagonist of Hung's movies, but very uplifting none the less. Jackie Chan's supporting role is also great and though I probably would have preferred him in the lead he is still incredibly funny as the clumsy cop of the film.

Overall, the film is simply hilarious. The amount of gags is almost unhealthy and this movie ensures that you will be laughing your head off.
