This exciting movie is crammed of action-packed, spectacular fights, comedy , breathtaking stunt-work and lots of violence . Jackie Chan is top notch as one army man fighting a group of heinous criminals and as always he makes his own stunts like is showed on the final fake-shots. This time Chan join forces with another agent , a beautiful communist policewoman , well performed by Michelle Yeoh, both of whom are taken to Hong Kong to work for the syndicate . Awesome,incredible stunts and brief comic touches, as usual , the picture is better constructed than its predecessor. The lighting-paced storyline slows down at times because the runtime is overlong , but frenetic action sequences make up for it. Spotlights movie include Jackie jumping over a train , furthermore dangling and downing a helicopter, among others. This is a phenomenal action movie distinguished by fine cinematography of the spectacular sequences , and contains nice sense of humor as well as the previous entries. In this outing Jackie teamed up to prestigious actresses and good action stars in their own right , such as Maggie Cheung and Michelle Yeoh or Khan . The first version titled ¨Police story(1985)¨ directed by the same Jackie Chan was a perfect action film for enthusiastic of the genre ; the following was ¨Police story 2(1988)¨also pretty violent and with abundant humor touches. It's followed by this ¨Supercop¨ or ¨Police story 3¨ and finally, ¨Police story IV : Crime story. The motion picture is professionally directed by Stanley Tong . Stanley started his career as a stunt man, but got his first crack at directing in 1983. After that , he founded his own film company, Golden Gate. He wrote, directed, produced, and stunt-directed ¨Swordsman II¨ , "Stone Age Warriors", which was so successful that Tong was given the job as director of "Supercop", starring Jackie Chan. His first American film was "Rumble in the Bronx", another Chan film. He directed yet another Chan film "First Strike" and ¨China Strike Force¨. He recently won the Golden Horse Award, a Chinese version of the Oscar , for Supercop. His most recent work is the family comedy "Mr. Magoo" , and ¨The Myth¨ , also he has realized some episodes of ¨Martial Law¨ series for Sammo Hung . Rating : Good , the picture has its sensational moments , mostly provided by its agile star, the great Jackie Chan.
