Double Feature!
POLICE STORY 3: SUPERCOP / SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW
POLICE STORY 3: SUPERCOP
GING CHAAT GOO SI 3: CHIU KUP GING CHAAT
1993, Park Circus, 91 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Stanley Tong

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. English dubbed version.


SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW
SE YING DIU SAU
1978, Sony Repertory, 90 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Yuen Woo-ping

Martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-ping makes his directorial debut on this seminal Hong Kong action film, whose infusion of comedy and acrobatic stunts helped propel Jackie Chan to stardom. Chan plays a put-upon janitor at a martial arts school who befriends an old beggar (Yuen Siu-tien, the director’s father), who turns out to be a kung fu master fleeing the assassins of the Eagle Claw clan. English dubbed version.
