How much you'll enjoy this film depends on how much silliness you're willing to tolerate. Sample exchange:
"I know seven ways to break into that castle"
"Why not six or eight?"
"Because seven is my lucky number!"
It's all rather shoddily made, but at the same time winningly lighthearted. There's very little action until the last 10 minutes....then there's some really good action (Jackie's fight, Yuen Biao's amazing acrobatics). (**)
P.S. Doesn't the pretty Lola Forner look a lot like Carole Bouquet?
