The fourth entry in the 'Lucky Stars' series and very much the worst too., 25 August 2005
Author: Induna from United Kingdom
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.
A funny and stupid movie, but not too bad., 2 October 2006
Author: martinren4 from China
This is the kind of movie which is very common to see in 80's
made-in-Hongkong films. No in-depth discussion, everything is plain and
clear to understand. Actors/actresses always try to do something
unfunny to make us laugh. And yes, they all master Kung-fu and kick bad
To me, the most impressive part of this movie, is this gorgeous babe "Yum Yum"(a character by Maria Tung Ling). I even think they produced this movie just to show us her cute face and big behind.
After all, it is not quite worth your time. But if you are on summer holiday and can't find too much things to do. It's still not bad to take a look at how these dudes poke Yum Yum's boobs.

I'm not ashamed to admit I liked this movie, 10 January 2009
Author: george crowther from United Kingdom
Yes it's another lucky stars film the original cast appearing for 2
minutes was a disappointment but in places I was actually laughing my
arse off. No point explaining the plot but here goes, a crack team of
imbeciles is put together to rob some Japanese gangsters of some gems
or something while trying to grope their extremely attractive tutor any
way they can. I'm not normally a lover of the slapstick stuff but it is
rather amusing plus the last fight is well done. 6/10
Standout moment After trying to separate a married couple squabbling Karl Maka is told his girlfriend is having lunch with Sammo so he tells the husband to beat his wife up he heeds this advice and kicks her flying getting the thumbs up from baldy.
overall this is a stupid film but that's what it's aiming for....
