Product Description

Amazon.ca

High-octane gas, pumped out by the buoyant maestro of Hong Kong action, Jackie Chan. In this outing, the irrepressible Chan plays a Hong Kong cop teamed up (gloriously) with a Chinese inspector played by Michelle Yeoh (a.k.a. Michelle Khan). The plot ranges all over Southeast Asia, culminating with Jackie hanging from a helicopter ladder high over the streets of Kuala Lumpur. This one's notable for the ingenuity of the stunts, and for allowing two of Asia's top female stars to do their bad thing. The great Maggie Cheung (Chinese Box) plays Chan's girlfriend, who has a tendency to pop up at the most inopportune moments; and Yeoh executes a hair-raising motorcycle jump onto a moving train--an absolute jaw-dropper. Originally released as Police Story III, the picture was rereleased in America as Supercop in 1996, after Chan's U.S. breakthrough with Rumble in the Bronx. The new version is slightly shorter than the original, and features a new soundtrack of English-language dialogue (awkwardly dubbed, but that's par for the course) and blaring rock music. Great fun any way you slice it, and--for the uninitiated--a terrific introduction to the humorous, high-kicking world of Jackie Chan. --Robert Horton

I've always loved Jackie Chan and all his films, this one is of no exception, I doubt that he will ever disappoint me. Highly rated for all, especially any Chan fan that hasn't seen it yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, funny and creative! Feb. 23 2010
Format:DVD
In a typical Jackie Chan style, this movie has action, excitement, humour and some heart! It's a great classic movie to watch!
This movie is named "Police Story 3" in Hong Kong. The story is fun and not entirely connected to previous Police Story 2, or 1. Basically his police inspector and chief needs Jackie to go and carry out an infiltration into a large mafia and terrorist group. He is partenered up with Michelle Yeon and is shocked that he has to work with a woman, but is a fast learner.
I think Michelle Yeon steals all the show, but Jackie performs well too. Sammo Hung makes a guest appearance, but not in the way that you would think. Also, all of the original cast are back for the movie, from Police Story 1 and 2. Jackie's girlfriend is as funny and charming as she's always been!
Anyway, needless to say, this movie is far superiour to any American Chan movies in character development, plot, and just pure fun.
Also, I didn't see the original uncut version, but it doesn't seem to me like this movie has been cut. It's very complete and dubbing in English is great! Awesome quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Supercop July 12 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The movie is ok but it is a superior film in Cantonese. The dubbed English is awkward and detracts from the film. I find the "dubbing" very annoying and would prefer the vintage Hong Kong Jackie Chan films marketed in the US be provided in the original language. Argggh!

1.0 out of 5 stars stick with original Feb. 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Why American production make HK movies look so cheap? First of all, they cut off so much scene, second of all ruin it by making look act so dumb by English Dubb. ALWAYS stick with ORIGINAL LICENSED HK RELEASE. Be careful with cheap imports, boots, and bulls though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: You're Not Getting the Whole Movie March 13 2003
By ryangs
Format:DVD
When you buy this DVD, you're actually getting an "Americanized" version of Police Story III, a Jackie Chan classic. If you're really a Chan fan, you'd be better off searching for an import shop (or a certain auction site) and getting the original Hong Kong version of the film. Not only will it have the original chinese dialog (with english subtitles of course!), but it also has a few extra minutes of film that were cut from this "American" version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Supercop Jan. 2 2003
Format:DVD
Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh rock in Supercop! Jackie plays as an undercover Hong Kong cop that must infiltrate a Chinese gang and stop their corrupt drug trafficking. With the help of Michelle Yeoh, who is also undercover with him, it's up to them to stop this gang and get their dirty money back and give it to their government.
This is an awesome film! The action is really great in this movie and of the first wave of the Jackie Chan movies that hit mainstream in the U.S. in the mid to late 90/s (RUMBLE IN THE BRONX, FIRST STRIKE and SUPERCOP), this is my favorite. It's also very funny as well. There's a good set of laughs throughout the movie. And of course, Jackie's patented outtakes in this one are REALLY Good (ie: helicoptor).
Check this one out and also check out some of Jackie's other greats like RUSH HOUR and RUSH HOUR 2, RUMBLE IN THE BRONX, WHO AM I and OPERATION CONDOR. Also check out Michelle Yeoh in CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supercop (1992) Nov. 12 2002
Format:DVD
This film really should be called "POlice Story 3: Supercop" but anyway in this film Jackie's sidekick is Michelle Yoeh (James Bond's sidekick in "Tomorrow Never Dies"). Together they pose as bad guys to infiltrate the drug gang and go undercover to destroy the operation from the jungles of Thailand to the city streets of Malaysia. Jackie battles the bad guys in some of the most spectacular stunts yet! Jackie won a Best Actor Award. Highlight: when Jackie jumps from a building to a rope ladder hanging from a helicopter. Great film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film is just great, don't pay attention to the plot (with is pretty thin to begine with!)the film is just plain full of action. From kung Fu fights, to shoots-outs, to explosion, all leading up to a great (let me take a big breath for this!) "prison-van/wimpy sports car/helicopter/motorcycle/train chase" at the end is just plain amazing. It includes hallmark moments like Michelle Yeoh hanging on to the side of a prison van, she also jumps on a motor and drives it onto the top of a MOVING TRAIN! All through the film everything is beutyifully shot, with lots of style. So who cares it seems like the prison garuds about 20 minuets in don't seem to even understand what is going on (though, yes, it is pretty werid, but it gives the ecuse for a small kung fu fight.), who cares if it makes no sence that the wife of the drug lord is being exicuted in malaysa, yet the illiegal money is in a swiss bank acount. I have only one grip with the Police Story series is Kevins girlfriend May, she is so annoying, if May is always so jelious why is keving dateing her?
Parents - Supercop is rated R in America and 14A in Canada, the film contains violence, people being shot, some violence aginst wemon and action scens to intencs for little children, but my opiniun is that most of the jackie Chan films out there are proably okay for an 8 year old.
