Goofs:
Continuity: When Inspector Yang lands on the red sports car driven by Kevin she breaks the windshield removing the top part of the windshield frame and rearview mirror. In the next shots the frame and rearview mirror are back in place. The windscreen frame that breaks is a clearly-visible dummy breakaway fitted in place of the Midget Mk II's normal frame; it is taller than the real windscreen. Also, the Midget Mk II was fitted with triplex-type safety glass which has a middle layer of clear sealant and would break but not fly into pieces, and the early Midgets were fitted with light-alloy windscreen pillars that would most likely snap near the base under that sort of impact.See more »
Quotes:
Chan Ka Kui:[after breaking Panther out of prison] Okay, now down that road is a small village that leads to a town.
Panther:Okay.
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?

Mr. Chan: more like this; less like the Americans, please!, 3 January 2000
Author: saraarts from Massachusetts

This is a really fun movie. Jerry Bruckheimer could learn a thing or five from Stanley Tong. I can only give it 8 out of 10 because it's not exactly deep, y'know? It is light as a feather, but it's also fun, fun, fun -- far more interesting and surprising than any "action" film I've seen out of Hollywood in a long, long time, all of which have seemed to me to be recycling the same script, plot, characters, and score to desperation. (Beats me how people could shell out eight bucks a pop to see Enemy of the State aka Mercury Rising aka Absolute Power...when they could rent Supercop for two bucks and actually see something unexpected.)

Of course, this film stars Jackie Chan being his usual goofy self, deftly making his extraordinary skills as a martial artist, stuntman, and physical comedian look as natural as breathing, but the other amazing talent in this piece is exhibited by the fantastic stuntwoman Michelle Yeoh (aka Michelle Khan), the same woman who for the first time blew away many Western moviegoers in Tomorrow Never Dies.

I think this woman is made entirely of rubber and springs. Most of her stunts in this movie are actually scarier and more daring than most of Chan's, and some of the most brutal took more than one take. And she did a lot of them in a dress!

Fortunately, she is also in the sequel to this, Supercop II. It's seven years old, and I can hardly wait to rent it. (When was the last time you were in a hurry to see an action flick almost ten years old?) Too bad I can't say the same for Rush Hour, which I had to click off after less than 10 minutes because Chan's co-lead character was such an obnoxious idiot.

I really hope Hollywood learns from Chan and his Hong Kong associates, and not the other way around. Indicators are not positive. Keep your fingers crossed. Meanwhile, watch Supercop and enjoy something fresh.
