The third installment of the popular Hong Kong franchise pairs supercop “Kevin” Chan Ka-Kui (Jackie Chan) with Interpol inspector Jessica Yang (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON’s Michelle Yeoh) as they work to take down a ruthless drug lord, Khun Chiabat (Kenneth Tsang). Quentin Tarantino called the action set pieces here the “greatest stunts ever filmed in any movie ever,” and by the time the end credits - featuring outtakes from these sequences - roll, you’ll be amazed the performers survived them.
