When Inspector Yang lands on the red sports car driven by Kevin she breaks the windshield removing the top part of the windshield frame and rearview mirror. In the next shots the frame and rearview mirror are back in place.
The windscreen frame that breaks is a clearly-visible dummy breakaway fitted in place of the Midget Mk II's normal frame; it is taller than the real windscreen.
Also, the Midget Mk II was fitted with triplex-type safety glass which has a middle layer of clear sealant and would break but not fly into pieces, and the early Midgets were fitted with light-alloy windscreen pillars that would most likely snap near the base under that sort of impact. See more »
This is my favorite of all Jackie Chan's "Police Story" series.
This movie has lot going for it. It's probably the only movie Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeo stars together, and two best talents in martial arts action movie teams up together to get the drug lord in mainland China. Covertly, this is the most comical of all the "Police Story" series drama, but has the most intense action as well. Interaction between Jackie, and Michelle is so funny, but when they get into the action scene, I would dare to say that this is THE best action movie Hong Kong has ever produced.
These guys were really "Super Cops", and it's one of the few movies from the early '90s that still doesn't look dated.
Simply fantastic, and highly recommended.
