Trivia

The film's Chinese title, "Five Lucky Stars", was chosen as it was evocative of the Seven Little Fortunes (The Lucky Seven). The Seven Little Fortunes was the name of the performance troupe that included Hung, Chan, and Yuen, while they attended the Peking Opera School, The China Drama Academy, as children. See more »

Probably the most fun action movie I've ever seen
29 October 1999 | by Moppy007See all my reviews

Wow. What a fantastic film. Okay, the story's been done in 100 other movies, but it's sure more entertaining than any of them. Yes, Jackie Chan's in it, but he only appears in about 1/4 of the film - the rest is up to Sammo Hung and his co-stars. The stunts and fight scenes are something to be proud of, as is the comedic touches in the script, which make it one of my favourite films of all time. Make sure you seek this one out at all costs.
