Audience Reviews for Police Story

  • Oct 10, 2020
    The plot is pure 80s cop clichés, but that's not why anyone would watch this. You're here for Chan's mad brilliance and the stunts in this thing are something to behold.

    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

    The opening action scene is clever and eventful, full of impressive stunts and explosives. I had always put off watching this for no good reason, Jackie Chan is well cast and gives everything to the role.
