For all lovers of Hong Kong and Jacke Chan's movies his Police Story
1-3 is a neccessity to have in your film collection.
This is a great and fun action film with some wild stunts as Jackie
hanging from the helicopter during the crazy ride in
the air through Kuala Lumpur and the scenes atop of the train, with
Michelle jumping aboard driving a motorcycle.
Jackie is a great guy and generously lets Michelle Yeoh shine
in her part, and she really makes an impact and almost
steal the film away from Jackie in her role as Mainland China officer
Yang. This is my favourite film with Michelle Yeoh
The old Hong Kong Mega Star DVD edition. Probably presented
then standard letterbox format with something of a 1.77:1 - 1.85:1 ratio.
Slightly chopped up usually. Cantonese 5.1
Interpol and the Hong Kong Police has a
problem with drug traficking and the leader of the gang, Chaibat, has
to be stopped.
A Super Cop is needed and just who could that be if not Chen Chia-Chu
(Chan) and in a joint mission with mainland China
he's sent to a training camp under the supervision of the Chinese officer
Chen's girlfriend (in all first 3 films in the series) is Maggie Cheung's
May and she's happy that Chen has been chosen to be
the Super Cop, but she doesn't know that he's been assigned to a dangerous
special mission under the alias Lin Fu-Sheng.
He's sent to a Chinese prison camp as a prisoner and where he's about
to befriend and infiltrate Chaibat's gang.
Some great scenes from mainland China, not that common
then (in 1992), where Chen goes with Chaibat's gang and Yeoh
plays his sister Hua, and Michelle gets to shine in some scenes taking
place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, her homeland.
The Blu-ray is presented in 2.35:1 widescreen ratio
and with a cantonese LPCM stereo or a DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio with
english subtitles. Extras a trailer and an interview with director Stanley
tong in cantonese without any english subs
