Michelle Yeoh returns as Inspector Jessica Yang in this fast-paced action thriller. While Jessica's career as a policewoman in China has been going great guns, her fiancÚ David (Yu Rong-Guang), also a cop, is not having the same kind of luck; dismissed from the force, he leaves town to start his life anew. When a rash of skillfully executed burglaries throws Hong Kong into a panic, Jessica is brought in to crack the crime ring. But her usual zeal for putting bad guys behind bars cools a bit when she learns that the master criminal who's been robbing Hong Kong blind is David, her former love. A sequel to Police Story 3 (released in the United States as Supercop), Supercop 2 has been distributed in various territories under the titles Police Story 3 Part 2, Police Story 4: Project S, Police Story V, and Once a Cop. Jackie Chan, star of the previous Police Story films, makes a brief appearance as Inspector Chan, wearing women's clothing. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Supercop 2
One cannot help but feel let down seeing Yeoh behind the wheel in an extended car chase scene rather than kicking some butt.
Weak spinoff of Police STory series. Action is stiff, lacks Chan grace.
Audience Reviews for Supercop 2
Michelle Yeoh is called in to help solve an armed robbery and uncovers a conspiracy involving ex-Vietnamese soldiers, one of whom being her ex-fiance. Including many of the typical elements of mainstream Hong Kong action films, Supercop 2's weaknesses are the usual corny musical montages, weak dialogue and stereotypical characters, but Stanley Tong's able direction and the effective leads make for a cut above the usual slapstick and martial arts formula. Most of the film is more serious in tone than its Jackie Chan inspired heritage, although Chan himself appears in a particularly weak scene that looks like it was swept up off the cutting room floor of another film and glued in as an excuse to put his name in the credits. Yeoh's energetic skill makes for some bracing fight sequences and Ronguang Yu makes an interesting and charismatic villain, with some very nicely engineered heist sequences thrown into the mix. Although corny in places, as a whole the bad outweighs the good. I just wish some of these DVD companies would catch up with the 21st century; offering dubbed films with no audio or subtitling options whatsoever just isn't good enough in this technological day and age.More
