A police informant sent a letter containing sensitive information on an illegal drug operation to his friend, Yi-Ching. While on vacation in Thailand, the informant is assassinated by the drug lord's henchmen and, to cover-up their operation, they attempt to eliminate Yi-Ching and double-agent Lau. Back in Hong Kong, police detectives Muscles and Ricky Fung are assigned to protect Lau and Inspector Barbara Woo is assigned to protect Yi-Ching. She takes her to the hideout of the "Five Lucky Stars" and also enlists their help in bringing down the drug operation. Written by
Full of awful humour and irritating characters, 'The Target' (what I saw it as) isn't a highpoint in the career of Jackie Chan, Samo Hung, and Yuen Biao.
I have to wonder at how the 'lucky star' series that this is a part of managed to become so popular, going by 'The Target' and the other one I've seen ('my lucky stars')
Besides the couple of final battles, there are only two good scenes, one featuring Michelle Yeogh teaching Judo, and the other involving the main girl pretending she's blind to avoid being killed as a witness. jackie's only in a few scenes and is generally wasted. If you want to see Jackie, Samo, and Yuen Biao is a good movie, watch Dragons Forever, or Project A if you haven't already.
