Police Story 3: Super Cop

( 1 )

Overview

Even for viewers who can take or leave martial-arts films, the work of Jackie Chan bears special attention. Chan is quite simply the hardest-working movie star in the world, regularly participating in the sort of death-defying stuntwork which would make most American action heroes cringe in fear. Combining his daredevil heroics with an almost goofy brand of self-effacing humor, Chan is one of the genre's most entertaining and engaging personalities. In this film, third in the Police Story series, Chan plays a ...

Overview

Even for viewers who can take or leave martial-arts films, the work of Jackie Chan bears special attention. Chan is quite simply the hardest-working movie star in the world, regularly participating in the sort of death-defying stuntwork which would make most American action heroes cringe in fear. Combining his daredevil heroics with an almost goofy brand of self-effacing humor, Chan is one of the genre's most entertaining and engaging personalities. In this film, third in the Police Story series, Chan plays a Hong Kong detective working undercover with the Chinese police to nab a Malaysian druglord. The usual hair-raising gamut of stunts follow, and numerous shootouts, fights and explosions surround the plucky cop as he combats bad guys atop a moving train, a bus, a motorcycle, a speedboat, cars, and trucks, eventually being swung through the city at high speed on a rope-ladder suspended from a helicopter. For the kind of fast-paced exotic thrills that make James Bond look like a wimp, this film is the place to go. There are some amusing comedy bits too, as when Chan's superiors all go undercover as his long-lost family, and the story zips along at a feverish clip.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Genevieve Williams
Far superior -- in terms of plot and action -- to Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop can be considered Jackie Chan's breakout film in the United States -- even though it didn't really make it to western shores until three years after its release. The dubbing on this version is hilarious, but, as is usual for Chan films, the dialogue isn't really the point. The semi-serious plot, which involves Chan as the titular Supercop going undercover to infiltrate a major southeast Asian heroin operation. He's joined by Michelle Yeoh (billed as Khan in what turned out to be her major breakout role), and as the two of them embark on a kung-fu-and-explosions-laden odyssey that takes them, eventually, to Malaysia, the chemistry between the pair makes the film. A half hour in, Yeoh, who until this point is a buttoned-down Chinese security chief, leaps into the action, and from this point on the film doesn't really let up. There are occasional forays into comedy, as when the two of them run into Chan's girlfriend (played by Maggie Cheung) in Kuala Lampur, where she manages to blow their cover, but the final half-hour of Supercop is essentially one long chase scene, involving helicopters, motorcycles, and the obligatory fight atop a moving train. Supercop may be a Chan vehicle, but Yeoh steals the show, so effectively that she got her own installment in the Police Story series, Supercop 2.

    Jackie's Best (A Pinnacle of Hong Kong Moviemaking)

    People will have their favorites, but all things considered - storyline, great action sequences, unbelievable stunts, humor, and Jackie's best action companion - this is the best hands down. Michelle is charismatic and daring, this could even be called her movie.

    This is the American release, with a different soundtrack and a few less scenes. That's the only reason I grade this four stars instead of five.
