Panther: [puzzled] Where you going?
Chan Ka Kui: Huh? They payed me $2,000 to get you out of there. The rest doesn't interest me.

Jackie Chan at his best!
20 January 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This is a great film! Just last night I watched one of his not-so-great films and felt I needed to watch something that fits him, so I chose Supercop. I've forgotten how great it is!

Unlike most Jackie Chan movies, this one has a nice plot that is easy to understand and characters that you can easily take a liking to. The music isn't bad in some spots and the storyline is great. Let's not forget the action scenes, which are some of Chan's best (not his VERY best, but good nonetheless)!

I really recommend this movie to all Chan fans out there.
