Dynamite is a controlled substance. There's only two ways you can get it; legally for industrial use, or, it has to be smuggled in.

Interesting; I never thought of that.

The recent Hong Kong DVD of Police Story II released by IVL and Fortune Star (packaged with Police Story one and three as part of the "Police Story Trilogy") features the 121 minute cut of the film featured on the out-of-print Japanese Laserdisc. This is the first time this cut of the film has been given a full 2.35 widescreen release (the laserdisc was hardly 1.66) and English subtitles. Only difference between the two cuts is that the IVL/Fortune Star edition features the original Hong Kong outtakes rather than the alternate Japanese outtakes. It also plays the Police Story theme music over the credits instead of the Police Story II theme music. See more »
After reading many reviews and most of the comments on IMDb.com I must say that some people don't have a clue what they are talking about. I mean if you give a review of a Jackie Chan movie you don't have to talk about the plot (even if it is a good one). Because most of the Jackie Chan movies are not about a plot, there is no message from Jackie for you to think about. At least this concerns the films he made before he was indoctrinated by motherland China. He is about the action, martial arts and dangerous stunts. The bigger the better. In short mind blowing spectacle. He tries to show you different skills and stunts in each movie he makes and he has been managing to do this for a very long time. Naturally old age has caught up with him. Although it has to be said that old Jackie can do more than any average person on this planet. So despite what you think of his political views he does deserve some credit. It is a real joy to watch him in action and furthermore he wants you to be entertained. So if you are giving a review of a Jackie Chan movie than talk about the action. Especially since this is where Police Story really shines at. This film contains the most memorable fighting scenes made by Jackie in his entire career. And that is saying something. In my opinion it is even better than Police Story 1 since it doesn't allow itself to be distracted by infantile comedy as much as in the first. But don't worry if you love the good old slapstick comedic bits. There are still plenty around. Even after so many years the action is amazing. It holds up like it has been made yesterday. It is far superior to his work in Hollywood (Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon)! I have been a fan of Jackie Chan fan since I can say Jackie Chan and I can be very critical about his work (especially his American movies). But Police Story 2 is an action movie that deserves praise simply because it his one of his best, a real classic!
