The story is given a new touch in `New Police Story.' This time Jackie plays a veteran Hong Kong police officer Wing, whose overconfidence leads to a botched raid. Feeling guilt deeply, Inspector Wing, now disgraced, is given to drink until a young `police detective' named Fung appears before him. With a help from Fung, Wing again begins to hunt the culprits responsible for the deaths of his men.
[NEW BREED OF VILLAINS] As in his `The Myth,' Jackie's answer to the recent boom of wuxia (Chinese period martial arts films), in `New Police Story' Jackie Chan clearly intends to do something different. The baddies of the new film are a bunch of masked young gangsters, who can rob and kill as if it is a video game. As a fan of Jackie's actions, I can swear that this is very unusual choice. For in many cases the villains of his films may have been assassins or gangsters, but they never acted like spoiled kids. It is certain that deaths are sometimes depicted, but not in this violent way. Violent, in this case I mean, for Jackie's film. The decision of director Benny Chan (`Who Am I?') would divide the viewers' opinions, but it is certain that he and Jackie are trying to seek a new direction.
[ACTIONS] But you want to know the actions. Good news is that Jackie is still alert and agile, and can move like when he was in his first `Rush Hour.Read more ›
I was trying to do some work while watching this but it was too interesting to just have on as background noise. The only thing that bothered me was the demeanor of the girlfriend. It just didn't seem to fit well with what was happening, but maybe I missed something. The stunts and action scenes were standard for a Jackie Chan movies so you won't be disappointed about that. The other thing that bother me is the voice over acting. I wish they would just film it in their native tongue or let them speak in English and use captions. Sometimes the voice over actors put too much emotions or too little emotion in their voice for certain scenes. Sometimes it throws me off because I am trying to read the actor's facial expression or body language and the voice throws me back into reality for a few seconds.

Jackie gives a good performance as a grief stricken cop. Yet, the story seems to far fetched to take completely serious and jackie hams it up too much in the tears department. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jacob s
