One of the best Hong Kong Martial Arts Buddy films ever - Yeoh is terrific!, 12 August 2000
Author: Sonatine97 (sonatine97@hotmail.com) from Birmingham, England

I've never really been a great fan of Jackie Chan, often feeling that he somewhat downgrades the true force & meaning of pure martial arts. Instead he turns it into a caricature mixed with lots of excessive special effects such as flying through plate glass windows or jumping over cars on a motorbike.

I prefer the more natural, aethetic Bruce Lee when it comes to studied martial arts. He took the art far more seriously and didn't take it to extremes just for the sake of another "gee whiz" effect.

HOWEVER.....

Jackie Chan DOES take his art just as seriously, (although not in a spiritual sense), this is proved by the number of near-death accidents he has received for the sake of his art over the years. He doesn't use stunt doubles very often and spends hours & hours going over potentially lethal special effects before finally performing them for us.

Police Story 3 is a superior Chan product, much better than his paper-thin stories as of late (although this could be down to the heavy Hollywood influence that perpetrates most of the latter films, and IMHO he is worse off for it).

PS3 is no different from his earlier films although on this occasion he has a more equally efficient lead in Michelle Yeoh, as his Chinese army partner.

Yeoh is a perfect foil for the extroverted yet dumb Chan. She screams screen presence, and her beautiful face belies her hidden deadly martial arts skills. And more significantly she, like Chan, very rarely uses stunt-doubles. (Best example is her jump onto a moving train while riding a motorcycle. Previously a stunt-double tried to do this but failed, ending up with a broken leg. But then Yeoh tried it and hey, perfect jump!)

Together they bring a more spirited edge to a rather humdrum story of drug traffiking. Chan isn't allowed to wallow in his ego because Yeoh is never far behind to push him out the way. The "buddy" chemistry works surprisingly well, perhaps because we have a woman who is truly independent and can definitely look after herself, thank you very much.

Chan does his usual stunts and his martial arts are good enough to get by with, although he is becoming just a tad predictable with more & more extravagant stunts for every new film. Which goes back to my earlier argument that he should really concentrate on the more natural side of his art and push all these boring pyrotechnics into the corner and let the character drive the story rather than the action sequences.
