Police Story - "International Version" Trailer (HD) (1985)
Police Story starts with a car chase through a shanty town built on the side of a hill. Let us be clear - three cars plow three separate paths through the town destroying all in their way. Roads? We don't need no stinking roads. It was just so over the top that I howled. I think the boys would have shushed me, but I wasn't the only one howling.
They broke a great deal of glass doing stunts in this movie. I suppose most of it must have been sugar glass, and then the sound of real glass breaking was added. Otherwise the set would have been covered in blood.
There was a plot, and a villain, and a couple of cute girls, but mostly it was frenetic Jackie Chan stunts interspersed with Jackie Clan clowning. Very entertaining.
I've seen other Jackie Chan movies and he does some spectacular stunts. I don't know if there is anything that will stick with me, besides the car chase through the shanty town. Since I don't remember seeing that before, I suspect I may not have seen this movie before. On the other hand 1985 was a long time ago, and I have seen many movies, so maybe I did see it once before.
