Trivia

The only Police Story film in the original quadrilogy that never received an American release by New Line Cinema. The first two films, as well as First Strike (the fourth film), were all released by New Line, while Supercop's initial release was by Dimension films. See more »

Goofs

When the copter carries Kevin over the locomotive's stack, soot from the black smoke smudges the back of his light-coloured trousers. In later shots, the soot is not there. Also, the stack gasses from an operating locomotive would be so hot that he would probably be badly burnt/scalded. See more »

Quotes

Insp. Y.K. Chen: Don't worry, the Chinese Public Security people will extend their full cooperation.
Uncle Bill: That makes me worry even more.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Uncle Bill, say something cheerful, will you?
[to Chan Ka Kui]
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Good luck.
Uncle Bill: In fact, the Royal Hong Kong Police are flying Ka Kui like a kite for this mission. It may break when the wind is gusty.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: Don't make such a depressing comparison.
Chan Ka Kui: It'll drift back if the string breaks.
Insp. Y.K. Chen: See? Ka Kui is up to scratch as I said.

The best Jackie Chan action film yet
28 November 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of Jackie Chan films and its rare to find gem in the many jewels in the films he's made. There are real drama films like Crime Story, or the frentic action in the original police story, there's the three-brother action in Project A, there's the frenctic kung-fu in Drunken Master 2, and then there's this gem.

This is certainly the best in the police story series, the action is fantastic, the humor brilliant, the story well put together. The duo of Michelle Kahn (Yeoh) and Chan is amazing, and Yeoh almost steals the show in her own right - her persona and her instance to do her own stunts (like Chan) makes her a marvel to watch - this is why she is so damn good in Tomorrow Never Dies, but its a shame the director of TND never captured her in the same way Stanley Tong does!

Chan maybe getting older, and its getting harder and harder for him to surpass his best. In that respect, this is possibly the last, best action film we'll get to see. I enjoyed it, and I'm sure most chan fans will enjoy it too.

My Rating: 9/10.
