My Lucky Star is wholesome, effortless entertainment that runs smoothly enough but seldom takes one's breath away in the romance department.

While Zhang is one of China's greatest international stars, "My Lucky Star" is utterly provincial.

Simon Foster

(A) candy-floss concoction that is never particularly gripping but certainly delivers slick visuals and an engaging bunch of performances from a committed cast.

New York Times

After watching it, you may need a few moments to remember which decade this is, because the film has the tone and silliness of a "Pink Panther" movie or an episode of the 1960s sitcom "Get Smart."

While the film does not lack production values and panache, Gordon's direction often seems thoughtless.

Michael A. Smith

Director Gordon keeps the story flowing smoothly and the photography, by cinematographer Armando Salas, is picture perfect.

It's hardly original, but as the plot bounces from Singapore to Hong Kong and the lavishly gaudy Venetian Resort in Macao, "My Lucky Star" plays out like a sparkling, brightly lit travelogue with Zhang as a bubbly tour guide.

The movie displays a fair amount of visual invention in its sight gags, stunt choreography, and bright color schemes.

The result is the blandest of both worlds. My Lucky Star is neither a particularly thrilling spy movie nor a very original romance.
