Trivia

Loosely based (as acknowledged in most versions) on the real story of millionaire Teddy Wang, who was kidnapped twice, first in 1983 and again in 1990. After the second kidnapping he was never found (in most versions of the film he is thrown off the kidnappers' ship, which is allegedly what really happened) and in 1999 he was officially declared dead.

I'll tell you what, I was not expecting this! I had never known about Crime Story before I came over it in my local video store. This was about 3 years ago, and I was a big Jackie fan , but I hadnt seen all his films yet. So I rented this, thinking it would be a funny slapstick action flick. Boy, was I ever wrong! This is the most serious Jackie movie ever! Even more serious than pre-Drunken Master movies! This is as dark as Jackie comes. But was it any good? Hell yeah! This movie was awesome! Jackie plays the part of a troubled cop perfectly and the film focuses more on the story than the action. Not a bad thing, and a nice change of pace for Jackie. He should take more roles like this to broaden his horizens, cause this movie ruled!
