1985, 101 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Jackie Chan, Chi-Hwa Chen

Following the disappointing reception of THE PROTECTOR in the U.S., Jackie Chan went back to Hong Kong and began working on what would be both a watershed moment in global action cinema and the start of wildly successful franchise. Acknowledged by the star as his best action film, POLICE STORY introduced the world to Chan on a whole new level as police Inspector “Kevin” / Chan Ka-Kui, a relentless cop intent on smashing Chu Tao's (Chor Yuen) crime syndicate at any cost. With Brigitte Lin and Maggie Cheung rounding out a stellar cast, POLICE STORY instantly cemented Chan’s place as a legend.
