"Jackie Chan broken collar-bone" - a review by timchuma

Description: Following on from the first two films (Police Story (1985) and Police Story 2 (1988)) in the series, this installment sees Jackie Chan on an assignment to catch a major drug baron. Normally this would be no problem, but he has to work with the Chinese Military on this case and they have a certain way of doing things.

His partner in this mission is played by a Chinese Military officer (Michelle Yeoh) who prepares him for his assignment and also sees that he gets some extra 'combat' training on the side.

After his training (official and impromptu) he goes inside a Chinese prison to help one of the drug baron's henchmen, Panther, escape and lead him to his boss, and this is where the action really starts...

This is one of my favourite movies for two reasons: It's a really good movie and it's the first Jackie Chan movie I bought when I started getting an interest in his work after seeing him on SBS.

Jackie does all his usual stunts (and a few literally death-defying ones), as well as the other actors Maggie Cheung and Michelle (who can ride a motorbike really well).

I also reckon Roger Spottiswoode, the Director of Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), which had Michelle Yeoh in it, may have seen this movie beforehand, since she does some very good work in it.

If you like the Police Story series or Jackie Chan in general, this movie really deserves a place in your collection. (Although don't even consider getting the version titled Supercop, as it is dubbed into English and has a really crap song on it.)

timchuma gives this movie 9 out of 10.
