Badly dubbed, but very typically Jackie Chan in every other way, humour, creative fight sequences, watchable, but not one of his best.

even less substance than your normal action flick, but hey, its jackie chan. the action was excellent and the short running time makes this a very worth while viewing when youre just in the mood to see some kung fu.

After being a little disappointed with Rumble in the Bronx, First Strike was a great comeback from everyone's favourite martial artist/wannabe comic.

As ever, it was the action and the jokes which moved the show along, and it delivered plenty - the huge fight scene in the aquarium and the ladder fight highlighting Jackie's infinite brilliance (and infinite pain tolerance, in the latter case - see the outtakes). And as for those koala underpants...well, some things you just need to see. A much better installment in the Jackie Chan legacy - not to mention that it was filmed Down Under, which as we all know is the greatest place on Earth :)

It's Jackie Chan so it's entertaining. Not his best, but still good for a laugh

Jackie Chan does James Bond in a rather sterile stunt fest that lacks the character of his best work. It's still a fun action movie, but he's starting to show his age a little here as the hectic slapstick is starting to take a back seat to overblown set pieces.

Fantastic on Jackie Chan who took his death defying stunts to new heights as he wrestled a great shark and skied off a jump into a helicopter.

First Strike, had gotten over four strike outs..so, it's less then a perfect hit, but passable.

This is the Jackie Chan one where he beats a group of thugs with only a ladder.

Jackie Chan is magic on screen, he is almost always doing something to keep your attention.

Excellent Jackie film, one of my favourites. Lots of comedy and action, and part of his amazing Police Story franchise. A must see for Jackie fans.

As a Jackie Chan movie it's pretty good. As a Police Story movie it sucks. Even though it's the same director as Supercop, it doesn't feel the same. Supercop had already toned down a bit of the violence the first two Police Story movies had, but this one has gone even more in the goofy direction. It's not bad and still entertaining, it just doesn't feel like a Police Story movie.

I like Jackie Chan, but I definitely prefer some of his later films with better story lines and humor. This plot is hard to follow from the beginning and a lot of the scenes just don't come off well comically. However, I do have to hand it to Jackie that he knows his stunts. If you watch this, make sure you view the outtakes at the end. It shows how much effort he puts into his work, even when it means getting hurt. The ladder stunt was simply unbelievable!

This is probably my least favorite of the Police Story movies, but if you're a fan of Jackie's work it's still worth watching.

a great action that is a very fun martial arts film with jackie chan now he still has his stunts inside him but I guess he won't admit it

More of Jackie's "I don't want any trouble and Im' mixed up in business that isn't mine."

WAIT. That's every Jackie Chan movie and I love them all.

If I was rating this film based only on fighting sequences, I'd give it 5 stars. I grew up watching Jackie Chan films....over...and over....and over again. So yes, the story is so stupid but OMG IT'S AWESOME!

I would consider the ladder fight scene towards the end to be the best fight scene with a ladder ever.

fun! who doesn't like to see jackie chan work his martial art skills, even if that means sitting through a mediocre movie.

Jackie Chan is a blast in most circumstances, so this is a great movie for those who want introduced to his Hong Kong work.

I really liked this movie, especially the action and how funny it is to see him the tank with a bleeding finger ..lol
