When the stunts struggle to hold interest in a Jackie Chan vehicle you know you're in for a tough time.
Pretty much everything in New Police Story seems so contrived that Alan Yuen's screenplay may as well have been written with a crowbar.
A tip of the hat to Chan for taking a break from his big-budget Hollywood mugging to return to his roots and do what he does best: shake up the streets of Hong Kong.
Chan se sai muito bem em um papel mais dramático do que de costume, mas, embora as seqüências de ação sejam eficazes, o filme é longo demais e acaba perdendo o ritmo em vários momentos.
Spectacular stunts and a gripping crime story deliver on the promise of Jackie Chan's New Police Story, even paying homage to the seminal bus stunt sequence in the 1985 original Police Story that set Chan on the road to superstardom.
Jackie reboots the Police Story franchise and things go awry. The original movies shined because they were a mix of action/comedy that really blends well with Chan's comical acting; a staple style in his work that any fan can vouch for.
The reach for emotional realism might be a good endeavor in theory but the conflicts that take place just get littered with plot holes to a point where you can't take anyone in this film seriously. Combined with a cast of unconvincing villains and support roles, we end up with a poor mix-mash of HK styled drama and silly 1v1 beat-ehm-ups.
Except for the dufus who plays his new replacement partner, this is WONDERFUL : ) It's Jackie Chan to begin with, so, really, we should just watch it even we think poorly of it in the end. But on the side of arguing that it's worth watching, no matter how good or bad it might be -- Oh, well that's the side of the argument I sit on -- so please just go ahead and watch this one. It really is one of Jackie Chan's best acting jobs -- I think.
And you are actually reading this?
K-den! I might be wrong . . . But you all can be the ultimate judges : )
Not to mention that IT IS Jackie Chan, so why haven't you all seen it already? : )
A comeback from JC with new touch!
This is a great Jackie Chan movie. The story is very good and the usual Jackie Chan stunts/fights are entertaining. This is also a more serious movie with minimal comedic scenes as some of Jackie's older movies tended to be more funny.
