Product Description

(Martial Arts/Foreign) The explosive sequel to Jackie Chan’s groundbreaking original, Police Story 2 is famous internationally for some of the most daring and inventive stunt sequences ever committed to film. Despite his success at apprehending criminals, Kevin Chan's unorthadox approach to his work as a police officer sees him demoted to the traffic branch. Despite this, the man he put behind bars is now out of prison, and has vowed to make his life a misery.

Before making a name for himself in Hollywood with the Rush Hour franchise, Jackie Chan was already an international superstar, thanks to Hong Kong films such as Police Story and its sequels. While not quite up to par with that film, Police Story 2 (released in 1988) still manages to pack quite the punch, picking up where Police Story left off. Chan's Ka Kui has been demoted from detective to traffic cop, something that depresses him but is a source of relief for his gorgeous girlfriend May (Maggie Cheung, Hero), who is hoping that they can live in peace. But hell hath no fury like a Triad member scorned, and Ka Kui finds himself a hunted man when the gangsters he locked away seek revenge. While the plot is familiar, the impeccably choreographed action sequences are a work of art. Exhibiting both strength and grace, Chan who also directed and co-wrote the screenplay as well as performed all his own stunts) is both heroic and comical as he fends off hordes of villains. He's in fine form, whether he's beating up his opponent or about to get bullied by a waif of a handicapped man. Chan is famous for including a blooper reel at the end of his movies, and while the bloopers for his later films appear almost forced--as if he had to scrounge around to come up with good material--his earlier pictures conclude with gasp-inducing mistakes that make the viewer wonder how one man's body can endure this kind of physical punishment. The DVD offers both the Cantonese version with English (and Spanish) subtitles, as well as a cheesy English dubbed treatment. Opt for the subtitles: The action will more than speak for itself. --Jae-Ha Kim

Police Story 2 was made to be the sequel to Police Story 1. Jackie directs this (and PS 1) and keeps the same type of serious tone but adds in more humor. The story is not as tight or gripping as the first but most Jackie fans will enjoy this.

Unlike PS 1, this is sort of a mindless movie. It starts out with the bad guy who Jackie sends to jail at the end of PS 1 (famous Shaw Brothers director Yuen Chor) out for revenge now that he is out of jail. He hires a guy to constantly harass Jackie and get into fights with him. It gets more complex than that and there is a real plot but the movie drags along too much before the fantastic ending sequence finally comes.

It was cool to see old school star John Cheung ('Snake in the Monkey's Shadow' and 'Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story') in a major role as one of the bad guys. Ben Lam ('Legend of the Wolf') also has a major part. Even one of Jackie's very best stuntmen Benny Lai is given a big role as the deaf mute. Benny Lai is a little guy but his kicking abilities are spectacular. I think the movie could have been a lot better but Maggie Cheung is even more enjoyable than she was in part 1 and it is a very fun film. Michael Chow and Lau Ching Wan also have cameos as cops. Both being fairly new to the movie scene at this time. And of course it is always great to see Bill Tung playing Uncle Bill and Mars as one of Jackie's cop buddies. You have to love Uncle Bill.

Akin to Jackie Chan's other movies, expect the best of the best stuntwork from Jackie and his team. Very inventive as always. I can't even imagine how much it would hurt trying to lay down every night during the shooting of this. In PS 1, Jackie came up with his own type of action choreography.

As night follows day, box office smash hits will get their bigger-budgeted sequels. But while POLICE STORY 2 is bigger, it isn't necessarily better. It's actually a terrific film. I'm just saying it's not as good as the first. But it's definitely worth a look, especially if you haven't seen the 122 minute long version. If you've only seen the much edited international release, then you haven't seen the real thing. Either way, Jackie Chan is still singing that theme song.

For his reckless actions in the first POLICE STORY (demolishing a squatter village, wrecking a mall, holding the police superintendent hostage, etc.) Detective Chan Ka Kui (Jackie) of the Royal Hong Kong Police is demoted to traffic duty. But when the mob boss he had arrested (again from the first POLICE STORY) is released from prison - because apparently he only has three months left to live - Ka Kui and his girlfriend May (Maggie Cheung, getting more screen time) become targets of the mob boss's vengeance. But that's only one set of thugs. Ka Kui also ends up tangling with vicious bomb extortionists and taking on that tiny little formidable deaf-mute martial artist whose only mangled uttered words sound like "Abba, abba." Detective Chan Ka Kui persists in being a loose cannon, and I'm astonished that in the next sequel he isn't demoted to the permanent assignment of getting cats out of trees.

Jackie's trademark slapstick is toned down as his character maintains that incredible intensity for the most part. There are those running gags with the guy whose glasses kept getting cracked and also with Uncle Bill's toilet issues.

If you liked Police Story 1 you'll like this one, too. I think the whole Police Story series gets better with each sequel. This one is more consistent than its predecestor--the comedy and drama blend much better. I don't think it is as humorous as 1, but the stunts and fighting are just as excellent. I thought the battle in and around the children's playground was as exciting as anything Chan has ever staged--but that was child's play compared to the final fight in the explosives warehouse! Buy this if you love Jackie Chan!

Like most sequels, there is some lack of originality. Jackie is fighting mostly the same gang of criminals although they are a bit more comical than in the first movie. There are some very funny scenes with his super and his girlfriend, although if you don't appreciate bathroom humor you may not think it's all that funny. Of course, there are great fight scenes and stunts as we have come to expect from any Jackie Chan movie. As with the Dragon Dynasty release of the first movie, the second has an English sound track with generic American accents, which does seem a little weird. Fortunately, the dvd also has the original Chinese sound track with English subtitles.

This has to be one of Jackie's best movies to date. The plot is very good and the story carries on from where the first Police Story ended. Again the fight scenes are incredible, especialy the one in the play ground. The stunts are top notch. I recommend this to any one who enjoys Jackie's films.

Sequels in the 1980s and early 90s tended to be retellings of the original story. Sure, time had passed between the events of the first and second films and screenwriters would make a reasonable attempt to make obligatory mention of what happened the first time around, but largely sequels were designed to give us more of the same. The 80s/90s, if I have my chronology correct, were before the Lord of the Ringses and Pirates of the Carribeanses, movies that tried to string a single narrative through multiple films. The definition of a sequel and remake were dangerously close during this era of movie history. Ghostbusters 2 made the gang once again face an influx of supernatural activity in New York, leading to yet another climax where a giant creature walks the streets of the city; Predator 2 transplants the same plot into an urban location; Die Hard 2: Die Harder, apparently afraid the audience will not realize the similarities between the first and second movie, takes immense pleasure in having characters point out how much the movie's events have in common with the original film, as if to say, "Hey, remember that movie you really liked, Die Hard. Well, this is a lot like that."

Apparently Jackie Chan doesn't like to hit the reset button because Police Story 2 not only deals with the fallout from the first film, but makes these consequences an important, if not always central, part of the movie. In fact, the opening title is translated as Police Story, Part 2. I think the "part" subtitle tends to class up the place. It's a way for the filmmaker to tell you that he's not in it for the money. He just wants to finish the grand narrative he began with the first one.
