This film is another under the radar gem from both my favorite Martial arts stars Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung. It's not quite a favorite of my nor do I feel it's one of their best in my book but still it was a fun entry all the same.

Not much to say for the film, the plot which by it's nature is a clothesline just to get the ensemble cast together, kinda like with "Oceans Eleven". I really do like the ensemble they consist mainly of comedic actors whom are really popular in the Hong Kong scene. One of my favorites of the ensemble is the guy that plays Sandy, his character is bizarre but really funny. He's suppose to be a con man that is faking craziness just to stay at the asylum for free for the meals; though the guy might have been spending a little too much time there as he's developed this delusion that he has psychic powers which of course he doesn't.

But of course were really hear for Sammo, Jackie, and even Yuen Biao despite in the film very briefly. As usually both Sammo and Jackie are really good at being their regular selves, and I really like the chemistry between both of them despite brief which is one weak point of the film for me. Even like there is a little depth on their friendship as there is a slight strain because of the fact both went different directions which just all the more want us for them to be together again.

The music is very good, I really love that end credit theme song which is another of my favorite theme songs of all time, it's has both a fun and exciting tone to it.

The comedy is solid, I really like that betting gag where someone has a hair brained scheme to make quick money which of course we easily guess doesn't work out, or where the crew is playing charades to get their eats, let alone seeing Jackie in a mascot costume which looks like one of those My Buddy dolls.

The action is great as usual, from the beginning battle at the outside of the amusement park, the confined space fight with ninjas at Jackies's home, though of course my favorite is the battle at the Haunted House which is one of my favorite battles of all time. What I love about it how it is structured, it's kinda like a video game where there are different sections which present different obstacles much like stages in video games.

And of course one of my favorite one on one with the female cop of the group against this Japanise Woman (forgot her name) whom is built and I thought is fraking hot, she definitely looks great in that ahem aerobic get up. The fight between them is both exciting and erotic, what can I say there is something about a fight between two attractive females that a turn on for me, I'm honestly not sure why.

The only bad things are not all of the comedy works, like that whole tieing up gag I thought was redundant and old, really slowed things up. Most of the ensemble don't really have much to do in the mission, it should of been more like a heist film where each team member has something to contribute. Let alone the middle was a bit slow not much happened but once the third act begun when Jackie comes back in the picture (which took a great deal of time) things got going again.

Overall this is another solid martial arts gem, if your a fan of both Jackie and Sammo then this is worth a look, it's a lucky find.

Rating: 3 stars
