Editorial Reviews

CRIME STORY


Jackie Chan stars in one of his grittiest roles ever as a police detective on the edge, who must race against time to solve a deadly kidnapping case. Based on the shocking true story of a billionaire abducted in a bold ambush, and filled with explosive martial-arts battles, Crime Story pulses with tension and excitement. Director Kirk Wong (The Big Hit) deftly combines acrobatic fight choreography with edge-of-your-seat action for this thrilling and dramatic tour-de-force for Jackie Chan.

THE PROTECTOR


Written and directed by James Glickenhaus (The Exterminator), The Protector stars Jackie Chan and Danny Aiello (Do the Right Thing) as a pair of NYPD cops sent to Hong Kong to catch a drug lord who has kidnapped the daughter of his former associate. Also starring martial-arts star Moon Lee (Angel Force) and Roy Chiao (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), this thriller features Hollywood-style action sprinkled with Chan’s death-defying stunts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie on Blu-ray is worth the price March 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It has been so difficult to find good copies of older Jackie Chan films that I welcome any blu-ray versions at all. That being said, this blu-ray is definitely better than any other version of these films, including the original Hong Kong DVDs, which I have--just don't expect miracles, because film preservation has never been a priority in Hong Kong, and the makers of the blu-ray, while they did adequate "clean-up," are not exactly the Criterion Collection (but then, it's not as pricey as CC releases, either). My only wish is that they had not squeezed what is essentially three films onto one disc, although blu-ray technology has enough "room" in its info code to do that. The disc contains "Crime Story" with a choice of soundtracks (including English dubbed for wimps) and subtitles, the original American release of "The Protector," and, in its bonus features, Jackie Chan's Hong Kong version of that film, which is the only thing that makes even having this film on the disc worthwhile.

"Crime Story" is a fairly straight forward police drama based on the problem of ransom kidnappings that were prevalent in neighboring Macau and Taiwan at the time. It is a more serious story than the usual Chan romp, probably because the film was not created for him, so it doesn't feel so much like a Jackie movie, per se. It still has lots of his trademark action, however, and also highlights his serious acting skills, which tend to be ignored. Being able to watch this film in Cantonese on blu-ray is worth the price alone in my view.

1.0 out of 5 stars On this DVD May 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A number of reviewers have commented that you can get the Chan version of the Protector with the other two movies. That would apply only to the Blue Ray. For the regular DVD shown above, you will only have the two movies with the Protector in the original U.S. release and then a dubbed version of Crime Story. Look elsewhere for the better Chan versions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caters to the more adult side of Jackie Chan January 18, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Hearing about how bad the image quality was on the Jackie Chan 4 Film Collection released a little over a year ago was enough to at least make even the most diehard Jackie Chan fans a little skeptical when it came to Shout! Factory's Jackie Chan double feature of "Crime Story" and "The Protector." Surely this would be a similar result since Echo Bridge Home Entertainment crammed four films onto one Blu-ray disc while Shout! Factory managed to pack three ("Crime Story," "The Protector," and the alternate cut/Hong Kong version/Jackie Chan's personal cut of "The Protector") onto one disc. Speaking as a massive Jackie Chan fan, receiving this product resulted in a plethora of emotions. Having never seen "Crime Story" or "The Protector," the opportunity to review this Blu-ray threw these two unseen films within an arm's reach and the excitement to see both suddenly skyrocketed. But the quality was bound to be terrible or they had to put the wrong versions of the films on here or something. "There's got to be something wrong with this release," you're probably saying to yourself. Take every one of your doubts and kick them in their imaginary sacks because Shout! Factory has outdone themselves with a release Jackie Chan would be proud of.

The Blu-ray looks fantastic for both of the main features. Everything looks crisp and relatively restored. Just watch the alternate cut of "The Protector" or see the original footage of "Crime Story" in the interview with director Kirk Wong to compare how far the quality of the film has come. Speaking of, the alternate cut is relatively dark, only available in Cantonese with English subtitles, and is in standard definition, but apparently that's all that's really available when it comes to this version of the film.

If you are a Jackie Chan fan then this is one of his better films. Whilst a little violent in parts, also very funny and worth.
