Brilliant. How lucky we are to live in the same time as Jackie Chan
a bad movie that I love
It's a Jackie Chan movie with more serious take, a bit less comedy than his other films, more action, a good storyline with a heavy villain in the game.
What more to say? This is a great Jackie Chan film.
Just terrible with good action scenes
This film really did surprise me because there isn't any silly jokes, whatsoever and it had quite a serious storyline, which is out of character for a Jackie Chan movie. In this movie, Chan is playing a senior inspector and he is sent out to solve a case which involves young kids robbing a bank. With his elite force, he follows the clues to a warehouse but his whole elite force gets ambushed and brutally taken out by the video game fanatics. Chan manages to escape from the warehouse but he suffers deep depression after watching his team get brutally murdered. One of the team was his girlfriends brother so he finds it hard to face her and go back to work. He then starts drinking heavily and a passer-by rescues him from the gutter. His new found friend poses as a cop and he convinces Chan to take on the case to find the killers who murdered his squad. After piecing all of the clues together it turns out that the teenagers are just a bunch of rich kids who are rebelling against there parents and the leader of the group has serious issues with his father, who is the head of the police department. Now that Chan has stopped drinking and is completely focused on taking down the teenagers, he uses all of his resources, including his new found friend, to stop them in there tracks. The stunts in this movie were amazing and the crazy bus chase and abseiling down tall building scenes, were great. There really isn't anything that Chan can't do! Watching him play a depressing role was a big change to his usual happy go lucky roles but he done it well and he showed some true emotion in parts of the film. The fighting scenes were also top class from both Chan and his young sidekick and I liked the fact that the director didn't over complicate the storyline. Although this movie is called the New Police Story, it really isn't connected to the early Police Story movies, even though he is playing a cop again. Anyway, I enjoyed this lengthy movie because of the detailed action sequences and the fact that you get to see another side to Jackie Chans acting. Enjoyable!
This movie was directed by Benny Chan who brought you the great Shaolin movie in 2011. The mixture of serious, intense drama and action, really worked in this film and the fast hitting fighting scenes made this modern day movie a joy to watch. The only downside that I found with the film was that it was a bit long and annoying teenagers seemed to be getting away with murder, literally. It didn't make sense that there was only one cop willing to sacrifice everything to take down the teenagers, who were causing havoc in the city. After murdering all of Chans elite squad, his fellow police officers were blaming Chan, because he put them in a comprising situation and they never show there appreciation for Chan efforts to take the baddies out. Anyway, I personally enjoyed the film and it's a "must have"for Jackie Chan fans.Â
I recommend this movie to people who are into theirÂ action/crime/drama/martial arts movies starring Jackie Chan, Nicholas Tse, Mak Bau and Tak-Bun Wong. 7/10
Jackie's still got it ... but compared to the Original Police Story movies its not as strong... the villains were a little too goofy ...but still a nice Jackie Chan flick
The style of this further sequel is much more moody and retrospective than its predecessors and isn't necessarily better for it. The film only really comes alive in the final quarter.
My Rating: 2.5/5 stars; Grade: C+; Gesture: Thumbs Sideways; Status: Mediocre or So-So (Rotten); Emoticon: :-|.
