Did You Know?

The first Hong Kong action film to use synchronized sound. However, on the 2009 region-1 DVD released by Dragon Dynasty/The Weinstein Company, when Jackie Chan discusses this in an interview, the subtitles transcribe the audio incorrectly.See more »
Factual errors: Even if only idling, real helicopter rotor blades would probably shatter, rather than bending if they hit a solid object.See more »
Chan Ka Kui:[after breaking Panther out of prison] Okay, now down that road is a small village that leads to a town.
Chan Ka Kui:[prepares to leave] Good luck.
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.
Panther:Listen, I like you. You're a good man, and I could use someone like you. I'll take you to Hong Kong for something big.
Chan Ka Kui:[shakes head] Hong Kong's too far, forget it. Just give me $500 more.
Panther:Here I haven't any money. But in Hong Kong, I've got millions - millions! I'll give you $100,000 when we get there. It's a deal?

Astonishing stuntwork and action set-pieces!!, 19 February 2005
Author: Libretio

POLICE STORY III - SUPER COP (Jing Cha Gu Shi III: Chao Ji Jing Cha)

(USA: Supercop)

Aspect ratio: 2.39:1 (Technovision)

Sound format: Mono

Police officer Chan Ka-kui (Jackie Chan) goes undercover within a criminal gang whose millionaire boss (Kenneth Tsang) plans to dominate the Asian heroin trade.

Though co-scripted by Chan regular Edward Tang (also responsible for the first two entries in the "Police Story" franchise), POLICE STORY III - SUPER COP is slightly darker in tone than its immediate predecessors and offers a much more streamlined combination of comedy, drama and action. This shift in focus was occasioned by the hiring of stuntman-turned-director Stanley Tong (RUMBLE IN THE BRONX, CHINA STRIKE FORCE, etc.), who keeps a tight rein on the film's narrative excesses whilst indulging some of the most spectacular action set-pieces ever filmed, *anywhere*.

Nothing in the first half of the movie - Chan's fight with gymnastic beauty Sam Wong at a mainland police training center; his initiation into Tsang's criminal gang by helping the villain's brother (Yuen Wah) escape from a prison work camp; a battle with police in a crowded marketplace, etc. - can prepare viewers for the *astonishing* climactic confrontation between Good and Evil, involving a series of hair-raising car stunts, Chan dangling (apparently unassisted) from a rope-ladder beneath a helicopter as it swings *high* above the streets of Kuala Lumpur (!), and the final hand-to-hand battle on top of a speeding train, upon which the aforementioned helicopter has become precariously entangled - and not a CGI shot in sight! Filmed with breathtaking gusto by artists working at the top of their game, this is commercial cinema at its most astounding (check the outtakes during the final credits, in which various participants come perilously close to serious injury or *death* during filming!).

Maggie Cheung makes another extended cameo appearance as Chan's beleaguered girlfriend, though the film is stolen clean away by Michelle Yeoh (billed as 'Michelle Khan' in some prints) as a mainland policewoman who assists Chan in his undercover operation, and who proves to be Chan's equal during the fast and furious combat sequences (the character proved popular enough to warrant her own spin-off feature, PROJECT S, in 1993!). Easily the best of the "Police Story" series to date, and one of the most memorable efforts to emerge from HK in the last fifty years, POLICE STORY III - SUPER COP is a winner. Followed by FIRST STRIKE (1996).

As usual, the movie was re-edited and rescored for its 1996 US debut under the title SUPERCOP. That version is missing only a few minutes of material, but should be avoided nonetheless.
