4.0 out of 5 stars Killer Action, International Intrigue� January 6, 2002
By Mr. JKW
Format:DVD
"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).
THE MOVIE:
"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 FEATURES:
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.
THE VERDICT:
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
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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.

Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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 My favorite Jackie Chan film May 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I've seen 14 Jackie Chan films and this one ranks on my list as his best. It's a hectic blend of martial arts, death-defying stunts, and hilarious physical humor that goes beyond even Buster Keaton. Yes, the plot is a bit hard to follow (probably due to a cut from the Hong Kong version) but the action sequences more than make up for it. I originally had been wanting to watch this film in theaters but it left after a quick run and a 14.53 million dollar gross, so I had to catch the film on video.
Jackie Chan plays, well, Jackie Chan, a Hong Kong cop who is assigned to follow a woman named Natasha. It's believed she is a part of an operation by the Russian mafia to smuggle out a nuclear warhead from the Ukraine. She eventually leads Jackie to Tsui, a former CIA agent who appears to be the head of the operation. After getting tangled with him, Jackie teams up with Col. Yegorov to retrieve the stolen warhead. Along the way, Jackie makes certain discoveries and begins to find out who the real bad guys are and what he must do to keep the warhead out of their hands.
Jackie Chan is the master. The reason his movies are so delightful is because Chan has no problem making fun of himself. He has a lot of great fun with his self-deprecating humor and it makes the movie even more enjoyable. First Strike is perhaps his funniest film yet.
As for the action sequences, they're as far from disappointing as possible. The kung-fu fight involving Chan defending himself against several men with tables, chairs, sticks, brooms, and a large aluminum ladder is a classic, perhaps his best fight ever (and I've seen Who Am I? and Drunken Master 2). With the last hour full of creative non-stop action, First Strike never fails to be a funny, thrilling, entertaining and all-out fun experience.
