Summary: One of the best from Jackie, Samo and Yuen
The last in the Jackie/Sammo/Yuen series was probably the best one of them. Chan stars as hotshot lawyer Jackie Lung who is hired by drug dealer/businessman Mr. Hua (Yuen Wah) to defend him in court against pollution charges pressed by Miss Yip (Deannie Yip). So Jackie asks friends Wong Fei Hung (Sammo Hung), a dodgy arms dealer and Tung Te Piao (Yuen Biao) a neurotic burglar for help. As he plans to keep an eye on the plaintiffs, he falls for Ling (Pauline Yeung), Miss Yip's cousin. After getting confronted of his plan by Tung and Wong (just before a hilarious fight between the trio), Jackie gets his two allies to help him confront Mr. Hua.

Although the film has an environmental issue based plot, this features some of the best fight scenes ever to be choreographed by the Jackie Chan Stunt Club and the Sammo Hung Stunt Team, like the end finale between Jackie and Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, the fight scene between Jackie and some knife swaying thugs trying to kill him on a yacht and the two scenes where Jackie, Sammo and Yuen go head-to-head against each other. The film also contains great performances by Chan, Hung and Yeung. But Yuen Biao steals the show with his role as the neurotic burglar (probably one of his best performances) shines off most of the comedy and his charisma (especially the scene when he visits the psychiatrist- a cameo by Feng Shui Fan).

If you want a movie that is action packed, with bone tickling comedy and a dash of romance- THIS IS THE MOVIE FOR YOU!!!! And an absolute unmissable feature for any Hong Kong Cinema and Jackie fans alike. Simply great!
