Trivia

The only Police Story film in the original quadrilogy that never received an American release by Dragon Dynasty. This is primarily due to Dragon Dynasty having the rights to the first two films via Fortune Star, and then using their previous Dimension Films cut of Supercop for the third. In fact, aside from Japan, New Line Cinema parent company Warner Brothers owns the international rights to the film. See more »

Goofs

In the snowboard scene, all the close-ups of Jackie show him snowboarding right-handed, but in all the long shots - including where he jumps onto the helicopter skid - he snowboards left-handed, with the opposite foot in front, suggesting that the long shots are of a stunt double. See more »

Quotes

Col. Gregor Yegorov: You even share the same coffin as your father.
Jackson Tsui: The coffin is for you. You killed my father!
Col. Gregor Yegorov: He had to die somehow. At least it was for a reason.

9 out of 10
31 July 2001 | by (town) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite of all the movies released theatrically in America with Jackie Chan. Police Story 4 is my favorite out of the Police Story series, and is very fun to watch. Jackie plays Jackie, and he plays this character very well. The ladder battle is one of the best fights I have seen in a long while. Obviously, you dont have to see the Police Story movies in order, because they released them all out of order, going something like 3, 4, 1, 2. I recommend seeing them 4, 1, 3, 2. This one is the best and you should check it out right away!
