Winner of the 'Best Picture' and 'Best Action Choreography' Awards at the 1985 Hong Kong Film Festival, 'Police Story' is regarded by fans and critics alike as the apex of Jackie Chan's celebrated career. Breaking new ground with its breathtaking fights and stunt sequences, it very quickly became a standard-bearer for Hong Kong Cinema all over the World.

Featuring a top-notch cast, which includes multi-award-winning actresses Brigitte Lin and Maggie Cheung, director Chan combines a compelling storyline of an honest cop on the run from a false murder charge with dynamic visuals and full-blooded fight action which is electrified with emotional underscoring. A true classic of Hong Kong cinema!

Probably Jackie Chan's best film in the 1980s, and the one that put him on the map. The scale of this self-directed police drama is evident from the opening and closing scenes, during which a squatters' village and shopping mall are demolished. There are, clearly, differences between the original Chinese and dubbed English versions, with many of the jokes failing to make their way into the latter. The latter is also hampered by stars who sound nothing like their Chinese originals. In fact, the only thing the dubbing has corrected is the court trial€at the time, trials in colonial Hong Kong were conducted in English, while the original has this scene in Cantonese! Nonetheless, Chan's fighting style and the martial arts choreography inject humour where possible, so non-Cantonese audiences don't miss much. It's not, after all, the dialogue that makes a Chan flick, but the action and the painful out-takes. The story is easy to follow: Chan plays an incorruptible Hong Kong detective pursuing a gangland godfather (Cho Yeun), and assigned to protect a star witness (Brigitte Lin). The action is superb from beginning to end, and there's not much time to breathe in between. It'll never get you thinking, but what an entertaining, and well strung-together, film. Arguably, this is one of the best martial arts films out there.

 One of his best

In my opinion Jackie chan was best in his Hong Kong movies that he mainly directed. Police story is one if the best of them, the stunts he performs himself and the fight sequences are second to none. The shopping mall scene has the best stunts and action that i've seen in a movie, better than hollywood has offered so far anyway. Forget his latest stuff, this is for the purist, old school chan fans that like to so see him getting stuck in and no health and safety to be seen!
