The fourth entry in the 'Lucky Stars' series and very much the worst too.
25 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First off no Jackie Chan or Biao Yuen. Secondly, apart from Sammo Hung, the original 'lucky stars' appear for only five minutes. Which is just as well as this is a real turkey. It's a pity Samo didn't have the same foresight as the others.

Basically it's the same plot as the other films in the series. The police mess up an undercover operation, so bizarrely they turn to Samo Hung and his unlawful for help. It's still unclear why the police would recruit five con men to help them. Samo asks his pals but they're not interested so he has to recruit five new lucky stars. Five hopeless policemen (including a young Andy Lau). They then proceed to share a house, bicker amongst themselves, a beautiful female cop moves in to train them whilst they play tricks on her to get her into bed.

This is supposed to be a comedy but it's mind-numbingly and shockingly unfunny. Jokes in bad taste like domestic violence against a wife, rape of a 50 year old housekeeper, a bizarre game of Russian roulette, even an Alsatian dog gets shot. It's pretty dire. The first half hour of the film is particularly painful watch. I cannot help but think Samo Hung must be throughly ashamed and embarrassed of this film.

The only two scenes worth watching is when we first meet Andy Lau during a combat training exercise in an abandoned building and the fight scene at the end with the young Japanese villain. Also a small scene where Samo has a fight in a padded cell.

Other than that this film is pure garbage.
