Review
by Kozo:

The Lucky Stars return whether we missed them or not. Sammo Hung and pals Stanley Fung, Eric Tsang, and Richard Ng return for more puerile comedy. Theyíre assigned to protect Rosamund Kwan because some bad guys are out to get her. Naturally, they spend time trying to grope her and sneak peeks at her in wet lingerie. Meanwhile, Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao, and Andy Lau fight people. Somehow the two gangs of stars intersect to take on Richard Norton and Yasuki Kurata. But first thereís some time out for Richard Ng to harass Michelle Yeoh (in a cameo as a judo instructor). Also, thereís an aborted romantic subplot involving Sammo Hung and Sibelle Hu, whoís returning from the first film as Miss Woo. 

More or less the same as the first, but this sequel just isnít as good, mainly because there isnít enough fighting to make up for all the annoying antics. You donít need fast-forward for this movie - you need chapter search. That said, the fighting in question is well-choreographed and fun, but wading through everything else to get to it can be trying. A who's who walk-on of cameos rounds out the movie. (Kozo 1998)
