Product Description

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

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.

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.

Originally released in Hong Kong as Police Story III, Supercop teams up Hong Kong action god Jackie Chan along with Hong Kong action goddess Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) for a 90-minute match made in Hong Kong action heaven.
Kevin Chan (Jackie), Hong Kong's recognized Supercop, is assigned on a special mission to team-up with a Red Chinese female cop, Jessica Yang (Yeoh), to infiltrate and take down a ruthless Southeast Asian crimelord.
The story winds itself throughout all of Southeast Asia including Hong Kong, the Chinese countryside, the jungles of the Thai-Cambodian border and finally to the busy streets of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
If infiltrating the inner circle of a ruthless crimelord and not getting your cover blown is bad enough, things become just a bit more complicated for Chan and Yang when Kevin's girlfriend (Maggie Cheung), unaware that Chan is on assignment, shows up at the same location that the investigation leads them too!!!
Overall it's the usual action tour-de-force you've all come to love and expect from the typical Jackie Chan flick and this movie does not disappoint with tons of shoot outs as well as the usual hand-to-hand combat. The real keeper in this movie though are the more outrageous stunts that are done, especially the movie-ending fight scenes on the train and a flying helicopter which features Chan going for a wild ride all over Kuala Lumpur.
Well, if you're hoping for a pretty loaded DVD, you've come to the wrong place as this DVD features nothing beyond the chapter breaks and Spanish language subtitles. Easily, this is the most disappointing Chan DVD I've come across yet.

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.
