Winners And Sinners

3

Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung - together at last! Actually, chances are you've already caught them starring together, their most recent pairing being this summer's Around The World In 80 Days. But back in 1983, Winners And Sinners marked the first time Asian audiences had seen the pair share a screen.

It's a lightweight example of their work, putting a comedy slant on a bunch of weirdo convicts (including director Hung's portly Teapot) who meet in the clink, form a gang and go on to help Chan's wired cop foil some much nastier counterfeiters. The attempt to blend slapstick comedy and high-paced action doesn't completely work, but it manages to entertain for most of its running time.
