Summary: Disappointing
Comment: Im a spoiled fan of Chan in Western flicks, and was expecting more of the same. Wrong. The characters and plot were sophomoric and mostly a clumsy attempt at Three-Stooges type comedy. Example - when not in their black "uniform," the scowling bad Ninjas appear in 50's style zoot-suits and broad-brimmed hats (except the sexy female baddie). The two main fight scenes (very early, and at the end) totaled about 10-15" and were classic Chan. Otherwise, a much better investment of time and bucks is Li's "Fearless."

Summary: Another Sammo movie with the same actors
Comment: This movie is just like Winners and Sinners and it is actually sort of a sequel. In Winners and Sinners Yuen Biao has about 30 seconds of screen time and has a good fight in his extremely limited role. He is in this one for maybe 3 minutes and somehow seems to fight even less!

Curly gets replaced by a stupid little kid type of character but as stupid as he looks, Sammo manages to make all of the characters pretty likeable. Charlie Chin(On the Run) had a great scheme in Winners and Sinners where he would go into a jewerly store, ask to see a diamond ring, go up to a random person, act like the person is their friend, go to shake their hand but really put a fake gun in their hand, and right as he gives the person the gun it goes off and he has blood packets ready and runs off out of the store with the diamond ring acting like he really got shot. I never got enough of that gag! Well Sammo certainly can't top that but all of the characters are just as enjoyable as Winners.

So the story is not really that important. Muscles(Jackie Chan) and Yuen Biao are looking for this defective cop at the start of the movie and Biao ends up being kidnapped(Don't worry, you see him again 80 minutes later). So Jackie says he needs his fat friend(Sammo) to help him on this mission of getting his friend back and also getting back contraband diamonds. Sammo says he needs his friends to come with and he will be mroe than happy to help. Next we get a very nice looking woman to work with them and the boys get to play games with her for the next 30 minutes. Finally at the end Jackie meets back up with Sammo and we get a great final fight. THERE IS NO ACTION IN THIS MOVIE UNTIL THE FINAL FIGHT!! We get a punch or two from Jackie and Yuen Biao at the start but literally nothing else until the end! And what an end it was. Jackie vs. DIck Wei, an AWESOME chick fight, and of course with Sammo as the main star of the movie, he gets some of his best fight scenes ever.

Sammo's jokes are sort of hit and miss just like in Winners and Sinners but when they are pulled off it is guaranteed you will be laughing for a while.

Summary: this it a realy good movie (Who cares about Kang Jack Sang?)
Comment: I this is a very good movie written by Sammo Hung I must say this it is a very childish movie! As it was was made to be this is the considerd the second movie in the very long series that just continues. actully the series borrows from Winners and sinners(considerd to be the first) but isn't also Pom Pom borrows from winners and sinners. Most of this movie is about nothing but jokes about grooping and rapeing women. I dont want to say too much about this movie becuase I want you to watch it but first one must watch winners and sinners. Kang Jack sang is only in the first 3 movies a little sammo comes in and out from time to time after the first three but it is a stupid movie and if you dont like those dont watch the movie but I love sammo hung he is a great actor and writer he just never got as huge as Kang Jack Sang(Jakie Chan) Becuase he likes to share the spot light and isnt as selfcentered as Kang Jack Sang.

Richard eing funny funny man
Yuen Baio great stunt guy and actor I think never got famious but needs a hand used to do a lot of Kang Jack sang's (JACKIE CHAN'S) stunts ALL THE TIME but never got the credit.

I like some of Kang Jack Sang's movies but I don't respect him as a person

Summary: A good movie, but not Chan's best.
Comment: This is a great movie, and it has a wonderful plot. The humor is dead-on, and I really enjoyed the action in it. Might not be one of the movies you watch to see just Jackie, but it's wonderful to see Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao (though he's not in it very much) and Jackie Chan working together. The acting is good, and it's great to watch in subtitles or voice-over. I'd suggest anyone who's a fan of Jackie Chan or of Chinese import action-comedy movies to buy this movie. You won't regret it.
