Did You Know?

Trivia

The "Police Story" film franchise was initially born out of spite from Jackie Chan's displeasure at how his second American movie, The Protector (1985), turned out. Ironically, it was in that movie that Jackie's character, Billy Wong, was referred to as "Supercop" by his superior. This, in turn, ended up being the subtitle (and in the case of the U.S. release, the main title) of this film. See more »

Jackie Chan at his best!
20 January 2002 | by smashattackSee all my reviews

This is a great film! Just last night I watched one of his not-so-great films and felt I needed to watch something that fits him, so I chose Supercop. I've forgotten how great it is!

Unlike most Jackie Chan movies, this one has a nice plot that is easy to understand and characters that you can easily take a liking to. The music isn't bad in some spots and the storyline is great. Let's not forget the action scenes, which are some of Chan's best (not his VERY best, but good nonetheless)!

I really recommend this movie to all Chan fans out there.
