Third entry with Jackie Chan as intrepid and likable cop from Hong Kong police headquarter, 7 July 2011
Author: ma-cortes

A Hong Kong detective named Inspector Chan Kui (Jackie Chan) teams up with his female Red Chinese (Michelle Yeoh) counterpart to arrest a Chinese drug czar . ¨Police Story 3¨ packs a violent confrontation between Jackie and an evil drug lord . This stirring story about the cop named Chan of the Hong Kong precinct is well played by Jackie Chan. Hong Kong police officer, Chan is sent undercover to mainland China to break up a drug smuggling ring and later in border of Thailand and Cambodia. After breaking the brother of the drug lord out of jail camp , he escapes along with the nasty smuggler . The wife of the crime boss has been detained in Malaysia for drug trafficking and is soon to be executed. However, she is the only person who knows the account number of a secret Swiss bank account hiding millions in drug money. While the two officers are in Malaysia preparing for the prison break , Chan accidentally runs into his girlfriend May, who has travelled there from Hong Kong. Soon his cover is blown, the villains abducts his sweetheart (Maggie Chung) and he is forced to help them pull off the jail break . The story follows him as he tries to stay alive and chase the villain , being pursued by the wicked criminal band . But then Chan turns into an unfortunate cop when the drug lord learns who has been double-crossed . Then Chan looks for vengeance against the ominous villains at a cat and mouse game.

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.
