With the success of Rumble in the Bronx (1995), Dimension wanted to release Crime Story in theaters next. Jackie Chan advised against it, so Police Story 3: Supercop (1992) was released instead. See more »

Goofs

Before the kidnapping, when we first see Wng and his wife in the car, as she reclines her seat because she is felling unwell, they are not wearing their seatbelts. In subsequent shots, they are both wearing them. See more »

Hardcore Jackie Chan!

Crime Story (1993) was a very different Jackie Chan film. He stars as a tough cop who only cares about getting the job done no matter what the cost. What was the change in Jackie's attitude? He had a different director in charge. Instead of doing the job, he hired bleak and gritty film maker Kirk Wong direct the project. Wong likes to make police procedural films based on true cases. This one was no exception. It was a strange sight to see Jackie Chan so serious throughout an entire film. He was one dude who did not want to let the bad guys get away. But expect to see a lot of crazy stunts and violent gun play.

If you don't think Jackie Chan can get down and dirty in a straight forward action film then don't pass this one up. You wont be disappointed.

Highly recommended.
