If you like fast paced films with lots of action, then you should really enjoy this movie.Maggie Cheung once again plays the part of Jackie Chans girlfriend who is kidnapped by a gang.The only way Jackie can save her is by collecting a large ransom which the gang are demanding from a large corporation.
With an explosive device strapped to him he has no choice but to do what they want. However, at the same time there are many comical scenes in this great movie. Well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A SECOND HELPING OF KUNG FU KICKS AND HUMEROUS ONE LINERS, 4 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Police Story 2 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Jackie Chan returns to his role of Ka- Kui in this action packed sequel to the box office smash Police Story. Jackie's acting skills and humerous scenes with his co star Maggie Cheung will have you laughing at his unfortunate predicament. But the fight scenes and death defying stunts will have you glued to the screen saying "BL**** HELL". The scene in the park( which is my favourite) will have you watching this film again and again. It'll even have you showing this video off to your friends just to impress. If your a Jackie Chan fan this video is a must for your collection, and even if you have only just started watching him the police story films are a must to see. Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of POLICE STORY!, 2 Dec 2000

This review is from: Police Story 2 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Although not as good as the original it is still an excellent film. Jackie reprises his role as determined cop Ka-Kui (or Kevin in the dubbed version!) and is trying to take things easy with his long suffering girlfriend (Maggie Cheung). However the bad guys from the previous film have other ideas and proceed to torment them. Jackie has to resort to violence in order to sort them out, causing him to resign from the force. Meanwhile, a new group of terrorists have appeared and are planting bombs around the city. The force need somebody on the case - somebody like Jackie...! This is a very intense film and has very little humour in it. However, it still has awesome action sequences and an amazing stunt as Jackie jumps onto the roof of a bus and then straight through a glass window! Spectacular! Make sure you buy the Cantonese subtitled version though. As well as all the other Police Story films!

Much excitable the follow up to the first, this one is a huge phenomamon of a movie & totally adrenaline action pack from the word "hiiya". Jackie is THE worlds action class star of the movie drone who always keeps the fan happy & glued to the screen so you will get more than your money's worth & not a sad moment of sadness this movie has. If you have have the first then get the second & you won't be disappointed.

What can I say? This is one of Jackie's best pictures. Fun, funny, thrilling and dangerous; yes, he does all the stunts for real which is why nobody will insure him! Great entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent directorial effort by Chan!, 26 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Police Story 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This movie has everything you could wish for in a JC vehicle. It has several great fights, stunts and lots of slapstick comedy, although it's a bit darker and more serious than "Police Story". The extras on this disc are very very exciting, and HKL prove once more that they are the best. The picture is a bit soft and shimmers sometimes, but that's probably due to the poor storage techinque of the original film element. Buy this instead of Eastern Heroes CRAP so-called remastered DVDs.

POLICE STORY PART II
[Jing Cha Gu Shi Xu Ji]

(Hong Kong - 1988)

Aspect ratio: 2.39:1 (Technovision)
Theatrical soundtrack: Mono

A disappointing sequel, POLICE STORY PART II finds police officer Jackie Chan once again at loggerheads with his superiors when he investigates an extortion racket following a series of bomb attacks on various high-profile locations owned by a group of wealthy property developers. While the action sequences are as spectacular as ever - most notably an eye-popping fight in a children's park, and the climactic showdown in an abandoned factory - the script (credited to Wai Wing-pin Kek Cho) is weak and uninvolving, and the characters are basically stick-figures, broadly played by an otherwise talented cast whose collective hamminess serves merely to dilute the impact of some pretty violent set-pieces. The stuntwork is first-rate, but the movie is ultimately as inconsequential as the plot.

Clearly growing in confidence as a director, however, Chan accomplishes a number of genuinely striking visual flourishes (the child's ball in the bomb-rigged shopping complex; the slow fade from day to night whilst Chan and girlfriend Maggie Cheung Man-yuk remain seated at screen-left, contemplating their relationship in silence, etc.), demonstrating a level of maturity that would culminate the following year in his bravura Capraesque comedy-drama MR CANTON AND LADY ROSE (1989, released on DVD in the UK as MIRACLES). Here, as ever, the fight scenes are lively, creative, beautifully staged, and very, VERY fast - blink, and you'll probably miss several kicks and dozens of punches!

Of the cast, Chan has charisma and charm to spare but not much range as an actor, and Cheung is mere decoration, demonstrating little of the talent that would distinguish her subsequent career (FULL MOON IN NEW YORK, CENTRE STAGE, etc.). Bill Tung Biu is rather wasted as Chan's lovable superior, and there are cameo appearances by Chor Yuen (a longime Shaw Brothers director, and chief villain in the first POLICE STORY), industry veteran Wu Ma (most famous for his recurring role in A CHINESE GHOST STORY and sequels), future heartthrob Ken Lo Wai-kwong (THE RED WOLF), and an early appearance by Lau Ching-wan, now widely recognized as one of HK's finest actors. And watch out for stuntman Benny Lai Keung-kuen as a deaf-mute villain who steals the show with his superb fighting skills, particularly during his climactic showdown with Chan. Production values are solid, as usual, with typically expansive scope photography by Cheung Yiu-jo and expertly-crafted editing by Peter Cheung Yiu-chung, both having performed similar duties on the original POLICE STORY in 1985.
