POLICE STORY (Ging chaat goo si)

Part of Weekend Classics.

The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in Jackie Chan’s breathtakingly inventive martial-arts comedy, a smash hit that made him a worldwide icon of daredevil action spectacle.

The director/star/one-man stunt machine plays Ka-Kui, a Hong Kong police inspector who goes rogue to bring down a drug kingpin and protect a star witness (Chinese cinema legend Brigitte Lin) from retribution.

Packed wall-to-wall with astoundingly acrobatic fight choreography, epic explosions, charmingly goofball slapstick, and awesomely 1980s electro soundtracks, both POLICE STORY and POLICE STORY 2 set a new standard for rock-’em-sock-’em mayhem that established Chan as a performer of unparalleled grace and daring and would influence a generation of filmmakers, from Hong Kong to Hollywood.

Note: POLICE STORY 1 & 2: Double Feature on Thu, Mar 21 at 7:00pm.

“The excellence of POLICE STORY has nothing to do with what kind of movie it is, and everything to do with how it’s executed… [Jackie] Chan exists to impress us, and impress he does. He literally suffers for his art, and our amusement.” —Matt Zoller Seitz, rogerebert.com
