YesAsia Editorial Description

As if Hong Kong needed more collateral damage from Jackie Chan, along comes Police Story 2, the follow-up to the immensely successful Police Story! Jackie Chan returns as cop Chan Ka Kui, who's saddled with a trio of problematic plots that would bring even down the toughest guy. Some mad bombers are threatening Hong Kong, so Chan is put on the case to sniff out the bad guys. However, Chan simultaneously must contend with the creeps from the original Police Story, who've returned to annoy him with their smarmy attitudes. AND there's Chan's increasingly grumpy girlfriend May (Maggie Cheung, given a bigger role in this sequel), who's a little sick and tired of playing second-fiddle to drug dealers and mad bombers. Things reach a head in the explosive finale in an abandoned factory, where Chan Ka Kui must fend off three kung-fu fighting foes who are holding May hostage. More action, comedy, and heart-stopping stuntwork are handed to the audience in Police Story 2, a sequel which matches the original's award-winning action choreography with some award-winning stuff of its own! Highlights include a prop-filled fight sequence in a restaurant, and a playground tussle that's choreographed in classic Jackie Chan style. Police Story 2 may be more of the same, but with action like this, it's also more than enough!

Professional Review of "THE POLICE STORY 2 Digitally Remastered (Japan Version)"

April 7, 2011

This professional review refers to Police Story II (1988) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
A classic in waiting, Jackie Chan's sequel to the genre-generating Police Story is Jackie at his most cynical and ironic. Focused on hand-to-hand combat the way Police Story 1 was focused on mega-stunts, it's a study in frustration for Chan's supercop Ka-kui. Busted down to traffic cop after demolishing a mall at the end of Police Story 1, he starts the movie as the underdog, then digs deeper. His temper is set on "Broil" and every confrontation ends in disaster, every cathartic moment is undermined by a cataclysmic, accident. He spends the movie in a heightened state of embarrassment, nothing going as planned, conversations overheard, gestures misread, cops becoming hostages and criminals becoming innocent bystanders. Frustrated at every turn, beset by the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Ka-kui's life keeps sliding off the plate like watery Jello.

Chu, the criminal kingpin painfully sent to prison at the end of PS1, gets early release due to terminal illness and his consigliere, John, plans to teach Chan a lesson. Chan's martial skills and henchman incompetence stretch the revenge over the course of several dust-ups in parks, playgrounds and classy restaurants. Chan's girlfriend, May (Maggie Cheung), finds her patience for action setpieces stretched to the breaking point (as is her head, which required stitches after a falling metal shelf it open) and she tearfully plans to bid farewell to Chan.

Meanwhile, on the other side of town....a gang of bomb throwing blackmailers are blowing up shopping malls, police stations, secretaries, and suspects in an elaborate extortion scheme. Romance collapsing like a souffle, bombs bursting, Chu out gunning for revenge - the three plotlines run a baton relay, each one kicking in when the other two take a break. It's not the tightest script structure in the world but god bless Jackie Chan for ignoring conventional wisdom where film making is concerned and just doing what comes naturally.

We've got Jackie jumping through a glass advertising display (he missed the breakaway glass and wound up with bad head injuries), Maggie getting the most screentime in any of the Police Story movies, bombs, disguises, pathetic romance and a trio of policewomen who are "good cop/bad cop" rolled up into a ball and tucked into a cute series of overalls and summer frocks. An undiscovered delight overshadowed by its predecessor, Police Story II is to Police Story what Project A II is to Project A: an undiscovered gem.

Just as good as the original Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Although this film was made in the 80's, i must say this is one of my favorite Jackie Chan films of all time. This film is just as good as the original.
