My Lucky Stars (1985)
Reviewed by: hokazak on 1999-12-09
Original entry in the "Lucky Stars" series of comedies (with an all-star cast) about a group of misfits who grew up together in the same orphanage with each other and future cop Jackie Chan. They grow up to be good-hearted, semi-bungling thieves who often end up in some combination of being on the run and helping Chan to catch the real "bad" bad guys. Notable for the first appearance of Michiko Nishiwaki (including a fight scene with Sibelle Hu) in an HK movie. Some great action/fight sequences, featuring director Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao, and Jackie Chan, but they are too few and far between, unless you happen to really enjoy these films' particular brand of humor.
