New Police Story movie review

Jackie Chan

Despite the participation of many famous Asian stars, Jackie Chan’s name is still brighter than others. It’s not unusual considering Jackie Chan’s extraordinary acting skills as well as his stunt work in some of the dangerous scenes. It’s all well packaged by him and director Benny Chan.

Jackie Chan has performed well as Inspector Jackie Chan, he can’t get rid of the character that has stuck with him in the previous series of Police Stories even though this movie is a reboot. Light comedy is also included between scenes to make the film more enjoyable to watch than just war.

Expensive footage

The setting is when Jackie Chan and Nicholas Tse (Chan & Frank) have to save a bus whose driver was shot by a criminal gang to distract Chan & Frank. The double-decker bus plowed into a shopping mall in an alley, destroying everything in its path; Destroy everything.
