Mr. Vampire Saga 4 (1988)

MrVampireSaga4

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!

The Millionaires Express (1986)

MillionairesExpress

One of the most well casted films I’ve seen to date!

Sammo Hung plays a petty thief who returned to his home town, Hanshui. Sammo returns with a group of prostitutes including Olivia Cheng, Rosamund Kwan, Emily Chu & Wong Yuk Waan. Sammo comes up with the idea to de-rail a train filled with Multi-Millionaires travelling to Shanghai.

His reasons be that his home town seems run down, nothing new, nothing to attract people. So stopping this train will flood the town with many rich people and hoping it picks up the towns business…

Yet on the train their is a group of Japanese led by Hwang Jang Lee, Yasuaki Kurata & Yukari Oshima. They are carrying a very valuable map which leads to the location of a very valuable Jade Buddha. Now a group of Bandits led by James Tien along with Corey Yuen Kwai, Dick Wei, Chung Fat, Cynthia Rothrock, Richard Norton and a whole bunch of lackys.

Another Storyline is the Police Force, led by Eric Tsang, Lam Ching-Ying, Yuen Wah, Wu Ma, Mang Hoi & Chow Gam Kong. The town off Hanshui is so quiet, there isn’t any crimes. Yet the police force were so bored they decided to set fire to the one of the buildings, this is used as a distraction the police force rob the towns bank. Most of the group escape, yet both Wu Ma & Mang Hoi are caught by the Firemen, led by Yuen Biao, Hsiao Ho, Chin Kar-Lok, Peter Chan & Siu Tak Foo.

The Police Force plan that their only method of escape is hitching a ride on the Shanghai Express. Now the town without a police force is useless. So the mayor decides to make the Fire Brigade the new Police Force. Biao decides that the first plan of action is to foil Sammos plan on derailing the train and then arrest the fleeing bank robbers.

Richard Ng and Lynda Shum join the list A cast as a rich couple boarding the train although Richard Ng has a secret mistress which leads him into some sticky situations.

Now the action, you know its Sammo Hung Action, its got to be good don’t you think? Well it is. We get to see a great fight between Sammo vs. Yuen Biao, Sammo vs. Cynthia Rothrock and Yuen Biao versing Dick Wei in a very fast paced fight to the end.

Yuen Biao also does a excellent stunt, doing a cartwheel off a two story building and landing on the ground and then delivering a line of dialogue. Hsiao Ho also takes quite a jump, Sammo tricks Ho into following him to the roof of a hotel. Sammo confronts Ho and Ho decides to exit by jumping off the building. from the roof to a balcony and from the balcony to the dirt!!

The Millionaires Express is a great action comedy which I highly recommend to all.
