Police Story (4K Restoration)

PG-13, 100 minutes

 

The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in Jackie Chan’s breathtakingly inventive martial-arts comedy, a smash hit that made him a worldwide icon of daredevil action spectacle. The director/star/one-man stunt machine plays Ka-Kui, a Hong Kong police inspector who goes rogue to bring down a drug kingpin and protect the case’s star witness (Chinese cinema legend Brigitte Lin) from retribution. Packed wall-to-wall with charmingly goofball slapstick and astoundingly acrobatic fight choreography — including an epic shopping-mall melee of flying fists and shattered glass — Police Story set a new standard for rock-’em-sock-’em mayhem that would influence a generation of filmmakers from Hong Kong to Hollywood. (1985, Jackie Chan & Chi-Hwa Chen, Hong Kong, Cantonese with English subtitles, PG-13, DCP)

“One of the great 1980s action films. It’s also one of the most 1980s action films.” — Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com

“The likeable and graceful Chan directs, sings and performs jaw-dropping stunts. Few of his American or Austrian rivals attempt a fraction of that.” — Derek Adams, Time Out
