Eureka gets lucky with THE LUCKY STARS 3-FILM COLLECTION (review)

Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao are part of an ensemble cast in the madcap LUCKY STARS series of films.  In WINNERS AND SINNERS, five recently-paroled criminals try to go straight and become entangled in a counterfeiting scheme by rival gangs.  In MY LUCKY STARS, a gang of former orphans travel to Tokyo to help their former friend turned Hong Kong cop to capture a rogue cop.  In TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LUCKY STARS, the gang battle a trio of assassins to protect an actress who receives incrimninating information about mob operations.
