"First Strike" follows Jackie's adventures which take him from the snow covered mountains of the Ukraine to the sunny shores of Australia as he becomes entangled in a web of deceit and danger involving a ruthless mobster smuggling nuclear arms, ruthless hitmen and a killer shark!!!

THE DVD FEATURES:
The DVD is a little sparse on special features, but it does come with a pretty detailed bio (more so than the Rumble in the Bronx DVD) and filmography of Jackie Chan, as well as the movie's director Stanley Tong. Also included is the film's theatrical trailer.
Action movie/martial arts film fans will love this movie. The action, as well as the story, are solid. New fans of Chan will also love this film as its great action sequences. The DVD features, while a bit sparse compared to more recent DVD releases, are alright. Overall, whether you rent, borrow or purchase this DVD/movie is worth a watch at least.
is one of Jacke best films to date but I do not know why film distributors have cut about 25 minutes from this film. There are a lot more scenes that were ommitted from the international release and a couple of seconds shaved from most of the other scenes, especially the under water and funeral parade. The film itself is still very good and enjoyable and if you are a big fan of Jackie or not this film is still worth buying for the fight and stunt sequences. The story is still in tact but these other scences help explain the story better and the characters are shown in more depth. The original version was in English (mostly) with Chinese and Russian as well as being Subtitled in English and Chinese. If anyone gets a chance to buy the Hong Kong version then do so as you are in for an even better treat. I have seen both these versions of this film and I recommend both. This film in both version still stands up against the test of time so I advise you go out and buy this film.
The movie itself is good, has good martial arts and spectacular stunts! The underwater scene is equally impressive and is the best underwater fight scene I witnessed in movies. That being said, I found that movie lacks a challenging villain, so Jackie Chan's martial arts go unchallenged in the end (it does have some great fights in the middle of the film).
Overall, I find that James Bond imitation is done better by Stephen Chow in From Beijing with Love. First Strike is not a bad film, but I feel Jackie has made far better ones!

I did find too big difference between old DVD and Blu-ray.
Blu-ray movie has enormous sharpness and a lot of noise.

This is an older Jackie Chan movie. I'm going to make this pretty concise. Jackie Chan does a great job in some really great and long fight sequences. Read morePublished on March 6 2004 by Richard Allman
