Police Story
The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in Jackie Chans breathtakingly inventive martial-arts comedy, a smash hit that made him a worldwide icon of daredevil action spectacle. The director/star/one-man stunt machine plays Ka-Kui, a Hong Kong police inspector who goes rogue to bring down a drug kingpin and protect the cases star witness (Chinese cinema legend Brigitte Lin) from retribution. Packed wall-to-wall with charmingly goofball slapstick and astoundingly acrobatic fight choreographyincluding an epic shopping-mall melee of flying fists and shattered glassPolice Story set a new standard for rock-em-sock-em mayhem that would influence a generation of filmmakers from Hong Kong to Hollywood.

"It's the joy of watching Chan, a Buster Keaton of kickboxing, hurling himself into every stunt with total commitment, astounding athleticism and oddly unflappable, shaggy-haired grace." LOS ANGELES TIMES

"The likeable and graceful Chan directs, sings and performs jaw-dropping stunts. Few of his American or Austrian rivals attempt a fraction of that." TIME OUT

"Chan seems to do everything he can think of to ingratiate himself with viewers." VILLAGE VOICE

"Its one of the great 1980s action films. Its also one of the most 1980s action films. . . . Butas is the case with most memorable comedies, as well as most memorable thrillersthe excellence of Police Story has nothing to do with what kind of movie it is, and everything to do with how its executed. Like most of Chans signature films, this one is driven by his ingenuity as an athlete, stunt choreographer, and director." MATT ZOLLER SEITZ, ROGEREBERT.COM
