Critic Reviews for Police Story 2 (Ging chaat goo si juk jaap) (Police Force II)

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (3)

  • Chan is the heart and brain of the Police Story films, and the lengths he goes to in order to impress and entertain extend beyond what we see on screen.

  • This second Ka-Kui adventure rests comfortably in-between the others, overflowing with Chan's patented stuntwork and comic high jinks, and as such, it's a fine introduction to the Jackie Chan phenomenon.

  • A poorly balanced, overlong picture that is neither outrageously funny in its levity nor incredibly awe-inspiring in its action sequences.

    September 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Evidently, the extreme focus on action takes a toll to the narrative, although I found this aspect beneficial to a point, since this tactic does not allow much space for the illogicalities that formed a large part of the first's story.

  • The film's paralytic self-seriousness fails to mesh with its outlandish characters and scenarios.

    June 3, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Police Story 2 saves a lot of the action for the third act, and that third act is a doozy

    The action scenes remain brilliant (The extended fight sequence in the playground is jaw dropping), although there are seemingly less of them in a movie that is almost 30 minutes longer than its predecessor.

    Basically the same as the first movie, but with less comedy.

    The first Police Story was the film that launch Jackie Chan into super stardom showcasing his stunt-work and martial skills. Police Story 2 on the other hand focuses more on Chan acting abilities which helps this deviating sequel overcome it hiccups. Police Story 2 follows villain Mr. Ku plan of vengeance through a series of bombs that have been set off in Hong Kong, so its up to Jackie and his regulars to investigate. This entry in the Police Story series goes into a more serious tone over it predecessor which is wear most of it problems lies. Chan character has less emphasis on comedy and instead is given a more dramatic focus. A swift of tone for Chan character is both good and bad. Good for it develops Chan character as an intelligent hardworking, but selfish and flawed police officer. Bad for it drastically eliminates much needed humor to prevent this film from taking itself to serious to enjoy. The plot in general is average as best. It's simple and straightforward as an action movie can get. It contains the usual damsel in distress for Chan to save and a lack strong villains. What helps keeps the movie exciting are the stakes our main character always something to lose all the time. Our main hero is not invincible giving it more tension. The fight scenes in Police Story 2 though less from the first entry are well choreograph. One fight scene in particular being when Chan fights dozen of goons in a playground and improvises with the environment to his advantage. Jackie Chan delivers one of his best performances here showcasing more of his acting chops over his kung-fu. Chan knows how to portrays his character and contains the charisma to his character worth cheering for. The supporting cast as well, except the actors who portrayed the villains could have been better. The villains lack presence and is overall a hard sell to the audiences. Nevertheless despite it's sift of tone Police Story 2 packs enough excitement and action as one would expect from a good Chan film. Police Story 2 fails to live up to it predecessor standards, but is an enjoyable sequel. Police Story 2 is more driven by plot and is more focus on Chan's acting chops makes this a film worth viewing for any action fan or viewer in general.

    A sequel that delivers more of the same that made the first movie so entertaining. Great fight sequences, painful stunts and some funny moments as well. Much of the same cast return too along with Jackie Chan's crew of fearless stuntmen. The excitement level just drops off a bit during the second half of the film, it could have done with being a bit shorter. A very worthy sequel overall.
