Police Story

Part of See It Big! Action
Saturday, June 1, 2019, 1:45 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater

Dir. Jackie Chan. 1985, 101 mins. DCP. In Cantonese with English subtitles. With Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin. Bringing together the anything-goes daring of Hong Kong Golden Age moviemaking and a story heavily inspired by American cop operas, Jackie Chan produced one of his most beloved action extravaganzas, which begins with a jaw-dropping shootout and chase that levels a hillside shantytown, and only gets more unbelievable from there. Chan, his co-stars, and his stunt team risk life and limb to put together some of the fiercest fights and set pieces ever caught on film, including a mall-set grand finale that plays to the tune of roundhouse kicks and shattered glass, climaxing with a death-defying drop through an atrium that nearly broke Jackie’s back. (Stick around for the famous outtake reel!)
