The non-stop Jackie Chan action classic in a restored 4k blu-ray double disc set presented by Eureka Classics.
Probably the finest example of a Jackie Chan action film, taking a more serious tone than most of his other comedic action films. The action is fast-paced with high stakes stunts performed, as usual, by Jackie himself.
Maggie Cheung, in a star-making role, plays his much-put-upon girlfriend, May.
Police Story stars Chan as super cop Chan Ka-Kui, who goes up against a notorious crime lord in a series of escalating set-pieces that resulted in many of Jackie s stunt team being hospitalised.
Police Story 2 Demoted to traffic cop after the events of the first film, Chan Ka-Kui is reinstated to the detective unit when a deadly gang of explosive experts blow up a building and threaten to blow up more if their demands are not met.
