Jackie Chan's Police Story (1985) is a fast-paced, action stunt packed movie, and it is still a brilliant watch, almost 40 years on. Featuring a supporting cast of Maggie Cheung and Michelle Yeoh who are now superstar Asian actors.
    Eureka have gathered the trilogy to release in this Ultra HD blu ray very limited Collectors Edition for the first time ever! 
     
    Featuring some of the most dangerous stunts performed on camera, a dazzling blend of gritty action cop drama, impeccably choreographed martial-arts sequences, and bone-crunching stunt work – this series of films revitalised the Hong Kong action genre and established Jackie Chan as a worldwide superstar.

    Police Story
     (dir. Jackie Chan, 1985)
     – considered by Jackie Chan himself to be his best film in terms of pure action, 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 (dir. Jackie Chan, 1988) – 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. Featuring yet more bravura stunt work, and even more injuries to its cast and crew, Police Story 2 is to this day considered one of the best action films ever made.
     
    Police Story 3: Supercop (dir. Stanley Tong, 1992) – Action superstar Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once) joins the series as Inspector Yang Chien-Hua, who teams up with Chan Ka-Kui to take down an international drug ring. With some of the most outrageous stunt sequences ever committed to film, Police Story 3: Supercop is an action masterpiece that must truly be seen to be believed. 
    All three films consistently appear on lists of the best action films ever made, and Eureka Classics is proud to present them all in their worldwide Ultra HD Blu-ray debuts from stunning 4K restorations!
