Police Story

Police Story ★★★★★


There's really nothing like Police Story. Action and comedy in harmonious sync. Jackie Chan offers humor not as a counterpoint but as punctuation between action beats. It's so complex in what movements he emphasizes and how he leads the viewer to the next development almost entirely through action. Watching him perform, even in standard expository scenes, is a unique and exhilarating experience, and this is one of his mountain peaks as an artist. Basically one all-timer moment after another.
