Darren’s review published on Letterboxd:
"You want to be a hero. I'll make you a tragic hero."
Paving it's way for Western Action Cinema, comes Police Story, one of Jackie Chan's finest works.
Chan plays a policeman protecting a female witness to a crime, yeah, I know, totally Bad Boys. A lot of the film is recycled in various Western World Films, like Bad Boys II and Tango & Cash.
Jackie Chan uses a lot of humour in this film, like talking on multiple phones, getting cake thrown into his face and wiping cow shit off his shoe to make it like he's moon walking. But at the same time he also proves he can do drama, the monologue before the hostage siege proves this indefinitely.
The mall fight scene is probably one of the best scenes ever filmed.
