Last year Eureka Entertainment put together one of the finest ever releases, two of action megastar Jackie Chan‘s best ever movies, “Police Story” & “Police Story 2”! They proved so popular that this excellent Blu-ray Box Set is to be re-released in a few days, on 16th September 2019. Check out our 10/10 review!
Jackie Chan’s POLICE STORY + POLICE STORY 2 (Eureka Classics) Ltd Edition Box Set Trailer
These iconic films explode onto Blu-ray from incredible new 4K restorations! Featuring some of the most dangerous stunts ever performed on camera, Police Story and Police Story 2 are a dazzling blend of gritty action cop drama and impeccably choreographed martial-arts sequences that revitalised the Hong Kong action genre and established Jackie Chan as a worldwide superstar.
Considered by Jackie Chan himself to be his best film in terms of pure action, “Police Story” stars Chan as “super cop” Chan Ka-Kui, who goes up against a notorious crime lord in a series of escalating set-pieces that resulted in many of Jackie’s stunt team being hospitalised.
Police Story 2
Demoted to traffic cop after the events of the first film, Chan Ka-Kui is reinstated to the detective unit when a deadly gang of explosive experts blow up a building and threaten to blow up more if their demands are not met. Featuring yet more bravura stunt work, and even more injuries to its cast and crew, “Police Story 2” is to this day considered one of the best action films ever made.
