Police Story

Police Story ★★★★★

Pretty much perfect, can't think of a single weak link. Everything works, on every level. The gags are absolutely timeless and watching Hong Kong stuntmen attempting suicide every 15 seconds will never not put a huge smile on my face. 

I kinda wish Jackie would just quit acting altogether and start directing again, sure he might be the greatest stuntman and one of the greatest entertainers ever lived but I feel like his work as a director has often been overlooked. 

The final mall fight in Police Story is the greatest action scene of all time, hands down. And anyone capable of making it should go down in film history as one of the greats.
