Police Story

Police Story ★★★★½

Boom! The daddy of 80s Hong Kong action flicks and the film that got Jackie Chan noticed, globally!

The action is still insane, from the opening shanty town destruction to the shopping mall finale. It slows down a bit in between, but there's still plenty of inventive fight and comedy choreography, one of my favourites being the scene with the phones.

If it doesn't look real enough, then just stick around for the outtakes in the credits, a lot of pain went in to making this film, ouch! It's not my favourite Chan flick, that's why it's not full mark's, but boy, it is outstanding! I watched the new Eureka Bluray and it's never looked better.
