If you're tired of burned-out coppers in Hollywood's blockbusters, try this offbeat hero from Hong Kong.

To watch Jackie Chan, Hong Kong's king of kung fu comedy, in the fresh and exhilarating Super Cop is like watching Douglas Fairbanks Sr. or one of the silent era clowns in one of their biggest hits.

Sly and Schwartzy, eat your hearts out. Chan's the man.

The most powerful starring role for a woman this summer? My vote goes to Michelle Khan in this garish, frenetic, and funny chopper from Rumble in the Bronx director Stanley Tong.

All this is executed with a good deal of panache, if not originality, by stunt coordinator Stanley Tong.

With martial arts superstar Jackie Chan, older may be better.

Supercop is a chance to get a full-strength blast of Chan.

Supercop's biggest flaw is what its producers probably saw as its greatest strength: it's very American.

Jackie Chan makes his second leap at the American movie audience, following up Rumble in the Bronx with a far sharper mix of stunts, martial arts and Chan's own brand of breathtaking slapstick comedy.

Supercop is a better movie than Rumble in the Bronx, in large part because it's funnier.

Chan is fun to watch, no matter what silliness one has to put up with.

It's kind of silly, but how many movies boast a leading man who isn't afraid to order 'roast cat and string beans' at a Chinese restaurant?

Audiences have come to expect Chan to do all of his own stunts. That's a major selling point in both Rumble and now Supercop, adding an element of danger missing from domestic action pictures

An astonishingly fluid and funny movie that makes most American action pictures seem lethargic.

A wild and free-wheeling action film, vastly superior to this year's Rumble in the Bronx in both plot and action.

Chan is joined in this outing by a female co-star, Michelle Khan, who seems every bit his equal when it comes to martial-arts prowess and foolhardy daredeviltry. Taken together, they're like watching two 007's, one 0014 or, as they say now, whatever.
