Movie Info

This was internationally famous Jackie Chan's breakthrough action film, the work that got him past the ethnic boundaries of Hong Kong and into competition at the New York Film Festival in 1986. It also got him into the hospital after performing a stunt in which he fell through a glass canopy -- and stopped breathing. The story itself is not particularly profound. Kevin (Ga-kui) (Chan) is an honest, self-effacing cop who manages to capture drug lord Cho (Cho Leung) almost single-handedly. A

The likeable and graceful Chan directs, sings and performs jaw-dropping stunts. Few of his American or Austrian rivals attempt a fraction of that.

In the course of the story, about drug traffickers, Mr. Chan gets three separate birthday cakes thrown into his face, and participates in several elaborately staged gun fights and car chases.

Algumas das gags (como a confusão com os telefones) caem no vazio, mas as seqüências de ação, como sempre esperamos de Chan, são formidáveis.

Primo Jackie--excitement and laughs aplenty.

Solid Jackie Chan. More stunts than martial arts, but still cool.

Chan is jumping everywhere, breaking through windows and using whatever he finds as a weapon. So, this ain't his best film, but you can't deny that he's an amazing performer, and the picture remains great entertainment.

Not one of Hong Kong action giant Jackie Chan's greatest movies, but it's entertaining and provides loads of martial arts fights and dangerous stunts.

Audience Reviews for Police Story (Ging chaat goo si) (Police Force)

With enough humor and solidity in its story, Jackie Chan's Police Story is an authentic Chinese cinematic product. With its groundbreaking action and naturally-performed stunts from the superstar martial artist himself, the film was a step ahead of its time and made for an outstanding performance. 4/5

A solid 80's Chan flick that has all his trademark humor, great fight choreography, and some pretty amazing stunts. Some of it is slow-going, but the "wow" scenes (especially a near constant series of fights and stunts near the end) definitely make it worth seeing for any Jackie Chan fan.

Highly entertaining classic from Jackie Chan. With a fearless team of stuntmen the action is spectacular and painful to see. There's also some quite funny sequences with Jackie showing off his comedic talent also. Never a dull moment to be had in this, it's very watchable no matter what your mood.
