Limbo dancing? A Golden Coffin? Wu Ma and Anthony Chan fighting like children? Chin Kar-Lok stuffing fish down his pants!? It must be Mr. Vampire Saga 4! Sadly missing Lam Ching-Ying as the memorable Mr. Kau, but he’s replaced by the witty Mr. Yi Yu (Wu Ma) and his little assistant Ching Ching (Rachael Lee). Upon his arrival back to his old home Yi Yu notices a young man stuffing fish down his pants!? Don’t worry this isn't some sick fetish, it seems to be Chia-le (Chin Kar-Lok). Poor Chia-le takes a beaten in the film as he accidentally grabs Ching Ching’s ‘your small, but shapely’ chest. Although he Chia-le throughout shows off some impressive acrobatics along with some good kicks. But, Chia-le isn’t the neighbor that Yi Yu should be worried about. The four eyed toaist priest (Anthony Chan, from the first Mr. Vampire film) who makes a rather amusing introduction sitting on top a conga line of hopping corpses, who are also mean break dancer! When Yi Yu meets the Taoist Priest this becomes a chalk and cheese connection, you know it aunt going to mix. A very funny moment is the use of Voodoo, The Four Eyed Priest plays about with Yi Yu for a little while, although Yi Yu gets the best of him by strapping a little Voodoo Doll (who resembles The Four Eyed Priest, to a T) to a big rocket and lunches it into the wall, funnily even you get to see The Four Eyed Priest fly too. Trust me this film will have you in giggles. After some tom-foolery The Taoist Presets brother (Chung Fat) appears with a rather stunning golden coffin! Holding the body of a royal family member. Along with the two prince’s, ones a child and the others…..rather feminine prince (played by Yuen Wah!?). Taoist Crane (Chung fat) tells his brother that he has the job of burying this coffin which has the body of a royal family member, who has detearated into a mean vampire! Soon after leaving the Taoist Crane set up camp and soon realizes the true power of the vampire. Even the princes guards are helpless and become victims of the Vampire King. The newly created ghouls soon set there eyes on the young prince. Chia-le and Ching-Ching show off some excellent team work against the ghouls. Mr. Vampire Saga 4 is an excellent finale to the series, even though this film miss out on its favorite one eye browed priest, it makes up with the childish antics between Wu Ma and Anthony Chan. The action and stunts are just remarkable, exactly what you would expect from a Mr. Vampire movie.
The lucky stars reunite again, Hooray! Kidstuff (Sammo Hung) has been asked from the police to investigate an international ammunition trade that involves two gangs. One is the Japanese underworld society that holds many stolen diamonds, and another he is the mysterious terrorist who owns an enormous amount of ammunition. Whilst visiting the police station he bumps into on of his friends from the orphanage, Quito (Sylvia Chang). As the two embrace each other in a friendly hug, some passing police officers get the wrong idea and decide to tell her husband, Albert (Karl Maka). Albert refuses to listen to Quito and attempts to battle Kidstuff, this soon leads to some very amusing scenes, including some pepper and tea. Even better when Kidstuff and Quito decide to dine together, but with Albert secretly hiding under their table. Kidstuff goes to visit his old childhood friends (Eric Tsang, Richard Ng, Stanley Fung & Miu Kiu Wai). Yet the past lucky stars want nothing to do with the police as they are proceeding with a life of crime! So Kidstuff begins looking for a new group of lucky stars! First off there is Top Dog (Alan Tam), he’s a natural with dogs, so natural he can actually speak to them. His character has the invariable and innocent look about him, but he is kindhearted. Fat Cat (Kent Cheng) the average lazy cop, who uses his gun and his badge to get his way. Although Kidstuff sways him to join the group by physically throwing money at him. Lambo (Andy Lau) the ass kicking member of the group. His introduction shows him participating in training exercise, where his character shows off some good martial arts and acrobatics. But he has the same faults as the rest of the group…women! Long Legs (Anthony Chan) and Libbogen (Billy Lau) are a couple of wimpy cops who run for the hills at the sight of danger. These two could be passed off as brothers by the similar appearances. The Lucky Stars group cant be complete with out the piece of eye candy ‘Yum Yum’ (Maria Tung Ling). A master of self defense and disguises. She is hired to teach the Stars everything she knows to them in two-three days. With out going into detail, Lucky Stars Go Places is silly, funny, humorous, naughty, a good laugh, anything that means the word comedy. This is a well worth a look at if you’re a fan of the Lucky Star films. Even though Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao aren’t in this movie, I don’t really think this would have suited them. But this is some entertaining harmless fun that any fan should enjoy.
