"GALA GALA HAPPY!" - a review by timchuma

Jackie Chan stars as the private eye 'City Hunter' in a story based on a Japanese manga.

I have this film on video at home, but it was good to see it up on the big screen.

The basic plot has City Hunter looking for the daughter of a Japanese newspaper tycoon which ends up taking him onto a cruise liner which is about to be hijacked by terrorists.

As it is a Jackie Chan movie, the plot isn't really that important so I'll just explain some of my favourite scenes.

GALA GALA HAPPY - For absolutely no reason at all there is a musical number by rappers DJ Hard & DJ Soft and dancers. I have also managed to find the lyrics to this song on the web and they are really funny.

Fight in the Cinema - Jackie gets help from Bruce Lee (whose movie is playing in the cinema), to take on some tall terrorists.

Street Figther sequence in arcade - This is my favourite scene from the film. Watching it always cheers me up as it is just so silly. What I like about it is that it is shot to resemble the game with Jackie Chan playing Ryu Honda, Guile, Dhalism & Chun Li - it's better than the ENTIRE movie they made about it with Jean-Claude Van Damme!

A good silly movie for Jackie Chan fans and people wanting a good laugh.

timchuma gives this movie 8 out of 10.
