Trivia

As shown beneath the closing credits, Maggie Cheung suffered a major head injury while trying to outrun the falling metal frames. Cheung was unable to finish the movie after this incident, so you never see her face. She is always shown from a distance. Crystal Kwok, who plays a policewoman in this movie, filled in as Cheung's double for the remainder of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Chan Ka Kui: 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.
Supt. Raymond Li: [Top of police command] Interesting; I never thought of that.

Alternate Versions

Just like the first Police Story, the American New Line Cinema cut of the film uses the international cut as a base, but is completely re-dubbed, with Ping Wu dubbing Jackie Chan and using J. Peter Robinson's music from First Strike and Rumble in the Bronx. See more »

The first half hour or so of "Police Story II" is easily it's best and it seems as if the sequel to the original action masterpiece is going to be almost as good. Unfortunately once Jackie goes undercover it starts to drag, and the film struggles to recover.

It's still enjoyable stuff though, but it's so hard to live up to the original, particularly when you're making it in such a similar way, "Supercop" made the right move by making it much different to it's predecessors. It's great to see Maggie Cheung with a larger role though. I refuse to acknowledge "First Strike" as part of the Police Story series; it doesn't even have Maggie! By the way, never ever watch dubbed/P&S Jackie movies (e.g. video store copies). God-awful!
