Editorial Reviews

Action-god Jackie Chan does his best James Bond impression with this ecstatic sequel to the classic Supercop. The bare-bones plot has Chan in pursuit of international terrorists, but the narrative quickly gives way to an unceasing barrage of insane stunt work (including a nitro-fueled ski chase and a grandiose fight scene set inside a functioning shark tank). As with most of the aging star's recent films, there is more of an emphasis placed on big, impersonal (albeit impressive) stunts rather than the close-up combat that made him famous; but the end result is still a must-see rush for longtime fans, and a great introduction for newcomers eager to see what all the well-deserved fuss is about. The scene where Jackie takes on multiple goons while armed only with a ladder is one of his most jaw-dropping set pieces ever--and that's saying quite a lot. Be sure to stick around for the closing credits of gags gone awry, which graphically prove that Chan is truly the hardest working man in show business. --Andrew Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars Killer Action, International Intrigue� January 6, 2002
By Mr. JKW
"Jackie Chan's First Strike" is yet another tour-de-force of hilarious near non-stop action comedy featuring Chan's trademarked ultra-choreographed but jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring just plain AWESOME action sequences (including the trademarked end-of-film outtakes).
"First Strike" follows Jackie's adventures which take him from the snow covered mountains of the Ukraine to the sunny shores of Australia as he becomes entangled in a web of deceit and danger involving a ruthless mobster smuggling nuclear arms, ruthless hitmen and a killer shark!!!
Notable Scenes:
1. The Hotel Fight Scene
2. The Warehouse Fight Scene
3. Hilarious - Jackie stripped down and forced into a funny suit
The DVD is a little sparse on special features, but it does come with a pretty detailed bio (more so than the Rumble in the Bronx DVD) and filmography of Jackie Chan, as well as the movie's director Stanley Tong. Also included is the film's theatrical trailer.
Action movie/martial arts film fans will love this movie. The action, as well as the story, are solid. New fans of Chan will also love this film as its great action sequences. The DVD features, while a bit sparse compared to more recent DVD releases, are alright. Overall, whether you rent, borrow or purchase this DVD/movie is worth a watch at least.
Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars SHARK FIGHT! SHARK FIGHT! June 20, 2005
Every time I watch Jackie Chan, I have to wonder: How does he do this stuff? He's just phenomenal. If you don't like Chan, that's fine, but if you aren't impressed by his amazing acrobatic grace and wild imagination, I feel sorry for you.

The plot is, of course, simple and just an excuse for Chan to do some amazing stunts. There's a lot to like here, including a ridiculous, yet absolutey stunning, fight in a shark tank. There's so much more, but I'd rather not spoil it.

Just see the film and expect a good time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Quite Give A High Rank October 24, 2003
Ok, I saw this movie when it came out in the theaters. I saw it when it came out on DVD. Something didn't seem right about the movie. It seemed choppy. Then a few months ago, I saw it on TNT, and it seemed to flow better. Do you want to know why? Do you? Well here's why. When New Line Cinema released this movie, they cut scenes out, cut scenes shorter, and generally chopped off 5-10 minutes of the film. I HATE it when distribution companies do this. Then recently on TNT, they ran the whole version of the movie, without edits. There were scenes that just helped the flow of trhe movie and the underwater fight was noticably longer and more impressive. While this was never by any means Chan's best movie, the whole version deserves a 4 star rating. However, because this is a review of the DVD, which is lacking 5-10 minutes, I cannot give it the 4 stars. If New Line goes back to release a Director's Cut DVD with the whole version and optional Chinese language track, it would get a 4. But until then, this otherwise great movie gets 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan's First Strike November 28, 2001
By K M
Format:VHS Tape
Jackie Chan's First Strike a.k.a Police Story 4 First Strike
is one of Jacke best films to date but I do not know why film distributors have cut about 25 minutes from this film. There are a lot more scenes that were ommitted from the international release and a couple of seconds shaved from most of the other scenes, especially the under water and funeral parade. The film itself is still very good and enjoyable and if you are a big fan of Jackie or not this film is still worth buying for the fight and stunt sequences. The story is still in tact but these other scences help explain the story better and the characters are shown in more depth. The original version was in English (mostly) with Chinese and Russian as well as being Subtitled in English and Chinese. If anyone gets a chance to buy the Hong Kong version then do so as you are in for an even better treat. I have seen both these versions of this film and I recommend both. This film in both version still stands up against the test of time so I advise you go out and buy this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT March 20, 2004
By MMAfan
You want action? Then pick this DVD up right now! Jackie Chan never fails to deliver thrills in any of his movies and this one shows what he's known for, crazy stunts all done by himself! No stunt doubles, only Jackie Chan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not Chan's best October 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The latest entry in the very distinguished "Police Story" series, this is something of a letdown after seeing movies like Supercop and Rumble In the Bronx. Don't get me wrong, Jackie's stunt work is as insane as ever; name one other actor who will snowboard off a cliff, grab onto a helicopter, then fall about 40 feet into freezing water. The plot, however, is rathter overcomplex and slow, and takes too long to get to the real action. There's only one major fight in the movie, involving Jackie, a group of irate relatives of a murdered man, a large ladder and quite a lot of wooden sticks. It's a great scene, but the only such one in the film. A sequence in a shark tank seems a tad slow, since being underwater doesn't give Jackie an oppourtunity to move really fast and acrobatically, or make his trademark goofy faces. Another scene involving two giant goons in a hotel room and various household objects is somewhat better, but seeing Jackie desperatley run away seems wrong. My final word though? Watch it, but don't make your final judgement on Jackie Chan based on it. Save that for after Police Story, Project A, Supercop, Rumble In the Bronx and Drunken Master II.
