A better sequel in the "Lucky Stars" series.
8 January 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this fifth film of the "Lucky Stars" series, Hong Kong Police Supt. Walter Tso (Tat-wah Cho) arrests former crooked corporate lead Big Dai (Hoi-Pang Lo), resulting in his brother, Richard Mao (Ching Wong), betraying him and taking over his corporation. With no evidence against Mao and the corporation, Tso seeks the "Five Lucky Stars" to help nab Mao and bring down the corporation.

The plot is a little more intact than the previous movies, with less fillers and better acting. There are some silly moments here and there, especially the parts where the "Lucky Stars" disguise themselves as women to "get close" to a girl customer of theirs, and where the "Lucky Stars" pretend to be ghosts to woo their new secretary (something we've seen before), but the humor and comedy is more tastefully done and will give you some laugh-out-loud moments.

There are some continuity points in the film, such as, the question as to why the Hong Kong Police would need to hire the non-law enforcement "Lucky Stars" to go undercover in prison, get trained and then learn how to learn how to break-out of prison after rescuing Dai. Why couldn't the police just release Dai and then train everyone in their station? And, why would the police consume food brought to them by a stranger before vetting the contents of the food first. They could very well be poisoned! The plot just shows the irrelevancy and uselessness of the police in this movie. But, this gives the "Lucky Stars" the spotlight in the film.

Still, the movie was pretty entertaining; I've found the ***minor spoiler ahead*** climatic action scene at the country club between the heroes and Mao's men quite intriguing and fun to watch. There were some quite good martial arts moments ***minor spoiler ends*** Although Sammo Hung is absent from this film, the four "Lucky Stars" (Richard Ng, Stanley Fung, Eric Tsang and Kiu Wai Miu) who did appear gave a memorable performance. One of the better sequels in the series.

Grade B-
