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 Fun 007 Spoof! May 17, 2006
This is not one the best stories you will ever find in a Chan movie but it has some of the best and funniest moments i have ever seen in his movies the classic ladder scene is my second favorite fight scene ever made ,the first being a tie betwenn the axe gang and final fights in drunken mast II, also the underwater kung-fu is great there are also some funny 007ish moments like the whole snow mobile ski scene also the fsb agents so in all this is a good fun movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Chan is the Greatest Stuntman of All-time! January 16, 2000
Want to see some awesome martial arts action with amazing stunts thrown into the fray? Then buy this movie. Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh have excellent chemistry and perform well together on-screen. Jackie's fight with Tsui's family is aweinspiring and the escape through the mall has to be seen to be believed. One of Jackie's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars "i will follow you" June 23, 2007
As many of you Jackie Chan fans may already know (and those who aren't fans are about to find out), Chan has his own uniqueness that makes him one of a kind. One of the elements about his action films that makes Jackie Chan, "Jackie Chan", is the humor. In "Jackie Chan's First Strike" we get to see some humor, but what there is more of is just pure fun. Where most of the fun lies, is in some of the coolest action scenes in any Chan film.

First Strike is basically part 4 in the popular Police Story series, arguably the best series of movies with Chan. Police Story 1 & 2 had a decent amount of comedy, but also a lot of seriousness. Supercop was quite serious. First Strike is the most fun out of the bunch, but has its serious moments too. As mentioned earlier, its the action that is so much fun. Plenty of scenes from beginning to end that will surely thrill from a great ski/snowboarding scene in the beginning, chases & fights, the incredible & famous "ladder fight" scene, and the incredible fun and somewhat humerous aquarium underwater scene.

The plot in First Strike is actually not all that dull, but might seem a little common for a Chan film. Jackie is hunting down some people who are dealing with nuclear weapons, and ends up working on the wrong side by mistake. The action picks up in the movie when he discovers he was working for the bad guys, he's a wanted man, and they begin to come after him. The English dubbing, though not great, is satisfying for a Chan film, actually helping in bringing out the fun factor.

Arguably the best scene in the movie, and of the best Jackie Chan scenes ever, is the famous ladder scene (although the particular fight is not limited to just a ladder).
