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

All Critics (8)

It's not Chan's most memorable film but if fits neatly into 90 minutes and packs in lots of fun along the way.

This sequel may be a bit thin on plot, but who cares when Jackie Chan is at his daredevil best?

Even though Police Story 2 is the weakest of the franchise, it's still great entertainment.

As seqüências de ação são intensas, mas a trama é maçante e as piadas, infantis demais.

Sep 11, 2006 | Rating: 2/5

Judged on its own merits, it outstrips just about every other action movie of the past fifteen years.

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.

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

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.

A much slower paced film than the original, however it doesn't really disappoint. I really wanted to fall in love with Police Story 2, and call it better than the original, but it's just not possible, when it seems much slower and less action packed. Police Story 2 is a great movie, but it's no Police Story.

There is one detail, which is not very common for Jackie Chan movies, but which is present here. It has some very tough and serious atmosphere about it while the funny elements are present too. Jackie is menacing and psychotic here. He is not a hero who is attacked and only then fights back (in a usual laid-back pattern), but he is the one who can go and start the tumult. His manner of hitting that evil guy in the glasses is amazing. Every time it goes "crack!". I also especially enjoy the scene when Jackie goes to the pub and thrashes the villains who had fronted on his girlfriend. It's one of the best blitzkriegs put on screen. Besides, the whole scene is shot with the background of some action character painted on the wall (it also looks like a poster of "rabochiy" from our Soviet era) and some lines in Russian on the left (I noticed that quite accidentally). That looks terrific (and nostalgic for Russian people). I also like when the windows are being smashed in the movies. Here there's a lot of this stuff. It's quite amazing watching the characters falling/jumping/running/driving through all manner of panes. All three movies are great. I had been preparing myself to see the down-slide of the quality but I saw a perfect trilogy with sense and incredible stunts (and not only Jackie Chan's character appears in all three movies - that's also excellent and keeps continuity up). I would like to describe each movie just in a few words: No.1 - great (in all aspects - it is one gripping story from the very beginning to the very end) and funny (many scenes are ridiculous); No.2 - raging (Jackie is really *beep* off here) and painful (Jackie gets tortured); No.3 - unbelievable (the woman that fights alongside with Jackie is incredible) and bombastic (should I mention a lot of guns and explosions?). As to the rest - much has been mentioned by the others. It's a trilogy that can be watched over and over again (at least by me).
