Critic Reviews for Police Story (Ging chaat goo si) (Police Force)
It's the joy of watching Chan, a Buster Keaton of kickboxing, hurling himself into every stunt with total commitment, astounding athleticism and oddly unflappable, shaggy-haired grace.
[Chan's] impeccable sense for how to stage a sequence extends to simple conversations, and the films are built around what's possible in terms of action rather than filling in action to support the plot.
Chan seems to do everything he can think of to ingratiate himself with viewers.
One of the great 1980s action films. It's also one of the most 1980s action films.
The likeable and graceful Chan directs, sings and performs jaw-dropping stunts. Few of his American or Austrian rivals attempt a fraction of that.
Audience Reviews for Police Story (Ging chaat goo si) (Police Force)
With enough humor and solidity in its story, Jackie Chan's Police Story is an authentic Chinese cinematic product. With its groundbreaking action and naturally-performed stunts from the superstar martial artist himself, the film was a step ahead of its time and made for an outstanding performance. 4/5
A solid 80's Chan flick that has all his trademark humor, great fight choreography, and some pretty amazing stunts. Some of it is slow-going, but the "wow" scenes (especially a near constant series of fights and stunts near the end) definitely make it worth seeing for any Jackie Chan fan.
