...a bona fide masterpiece of action cinema.

As writer/director/star/stunt coordinator, Chan secured legend status right here before our very eyes with Police Story.
May 6, 2019
a goofy action comedy that redefined the boundaries of the martial arts film by incorporating kung-fu theatrics into a modern police procedural

Chan shows off his formidable physical agility and winsome personality.

Arresting fight scenes well orchestrated. Whatever area the fights take place in, everything in the vicinity will be used to fight with; whether it's a shoe, two small steps, or a sock - Chan will find a way to use them creatively during the fight.

It's the joy of watching Chan, a Buster Keaton of kickboxing, hurling himself into every stunt with total commitment, astounding athleticism and oddly unflappable, shaggy-haired grace.

In Police Story, Chan is able to highlight all of his gifts as an action star, a comedic star, and as a director balancing the two.

...[shows] writer-director-star Jackie Chan in his finest fighting style -- along with his usual over mugging for the camera.

[Chan's] impeccable sense for how to stage a sequence extends to simple conversations, and the films are built around what's possible in terms of action rather than filling in action to support the plot.

Featuring cinema's best bus-related stunt sequence, a spectacular finale in a shopping mall and, um, multiple instances of its star getting hit in the face with cake.

Just as good as the fights though are Police Story's comic set pieces, especially one totally unrelated to any kind of plot development, which finds Chan alone in the precinct office as everyone else goes to lunch.
March 6, 2018
Chan seems to do everything he can think of to ingratiate himself with viewers.
March 6, 2018
One of the great 1980s action films. It's also one of the most 1980s action films.

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

Algumas das gags (como a confuso com os telefones) caem no vazio, mas as seqncias de ao, como sempre esperamos de Chan, so formidveis.

Primo Jackie--excitement and laughs aplenty.
August 30, 2004
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.
