Plot
With the names of Peking Opera pals and frequent costars Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao headlining this action comedy, one would reasonably expect another kung-fu-teer team-up, and the bang-up opening does nothing to contradict that. The picture jumps out of the gate with Hong Kong cops Chan and Biao undercover in Japan, chasing a supercriminal into an amusement park where an army of hooded, sword-wielding ninjas erupt from the crowd and take on our heroes in a wild attack. Biao is kidnapped, Chan goes underground, and that's the last we see of either of them for quite some time as Sammo Hung and his gang of con-man cronies and petty-thief pals take over the film when they are recruited to infiltrate the criminal empire known as the Scarecrow Club. The middle of the picture suffers from the worst kind of juvenile sexual horseplay as the five hormonally charged misfits try to make time with their beautiful police liaison Sibelle Hu, only returning to adrenaline-charged action in the free-for-all finale. Chan is relegated to guest-star status and Biao has no better than a cameo (those looking for the trio in action together should check out Wheels on Meals and Dragons Forever), but director-star Hung delivers inventively choreographed martial arts mayhem when he's not mired in groaning bathroom humor. --Sean Axmaker
