Daniel Slack’s review published on Letterboxd:
The action film perfected.
A masterwork of stunts, fight choreography and physical comedy, Police Story is undoubtedly one of the greatest films ever made. The attention to detail, the yearning to make real the impossible, to physically do the inconceivable, all make this an entirely baffling storm of excellence - and let it not be overlooked that this has not one shred of pretence about it. Chan is in his absolute prime. The expressionist, melodramatic range he has is phenomenal - and his direction is pin-point brilliant. Films simply do not come much better than this. Quintessential yet almost incomparable to anything other than another great Jackie Can film. If you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat. A masterpiece.
