An old face. A new story.By Adam Wing from Market Harborough, England , 25 Nov 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]After a series of mis-fires Jackie returned to The East for another outing in the Police Story saga. The first film is one of his best, often imitated but never bettered. The third film of the series must rate as one of the best sequels ever made, as Jackie teams up with Michelle Yeoh in action city central.
The years may be sneaking up on Chan but if New Police Story is a sign of things to come then the old snake is still putting up a good fight. With a little light relief thrown in for good measure.
The film certainly starts out a little darker. Jackie battles with inner demons, not to mention those of the alcoholic variety in the opening act. Soon the story kicks in though and we are back in familiar territory. Wild stunts, big explosions, a little mild comic relief. The body count is high but the stunts are just as impressive. A stand out fight scene takes place in a Lego store, vintage Jackie Chan indeed.
Nicholas Tse and Charlene Choi offer youthful spirit in the supporting roles and though the final outcome may not convert new fans to the ways of Jackie Chan, old fans will relish this return to form for one of action cinemas very best.

good boys own action...thumbs up :DBy IsshinKurosaki (50 reviews) , 19 Jun 2013this is quality Chan pollox. a good watch all the way through including the painful attempt at 'dark' well worth a watch if you want action and not too much thinking.
Action from the start to the end.By The_Mole (60 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013Jackie Chan doing his thing in Hong Kong, and doing it very well. Semi-plausible plot line, but who cares? Enough action and fight scenes to make up for the odd story-line hiccup. Unusually I didn't mind the subtitles; normally I would stay away from them, as I'm a casual viewer, but this had me from the start, and they were done well enough to not miss any of the action or subtle shots.
Great showBy Sambo83 (3 reviews) , 25 Oct 2012Contains perhaps the best fighting scenes I have ever scene, plenty of action and the plot was solid, really entertaining.
Jackie packs a punch!By EduardoSanchez (13 reviews) from London , 15 Sep 2012Another action packed entry in the Police Story series from the master of disaster. Nobody does disgraced drunk better than Jackie, the pace is frenetic and the stunts and fighting are top notch. Great entertainment.
