International superstar Jackie Chan has been delivering some of the best stunts and fights in his earlier career compared to his Hollywood outings and Police Story was his first breakthrough film to introduce audiences his blend of dangerous stunts and intense fights.

Story wise Police Story does not really do anything interesting but people do not go to see Jackie Chan deliver in story, they go to watch him beat people up and he does this plentifully.

Hopefully now your expectations are lowered for the story telling department. It is the fight scenes that shines through and they deliver some of the best fights that are reminiscent of old HK films… Read more
