Blu-ray release: ‘Police Story’ / ‘Police Story 2’

By   |  Jun 5, 2018

Eureka Entertainment will release a box set containing Jackie Chan‘s ‘Police Story‘ and ‘Police Story 2‘ for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK on August 20, 2018.

Featuring some of the most dangerous stunts ever performed on camera, the films are a dazzling blend of gritty action cop drama and impeccably choreographed martial-arts sequences that revitalised the Hong Kong action genre and established Jackie Chan as a worldwide superstar.

Police Story
Considered by Jackie Chan himself to be his best film in terms of pure action, ‘Police Story’ stars Chan as “super cop” Chan Ka-Kui, who goes up against a notorious crime lord in a series of escalating set-pieces that resulted in many of Jackie’s stunt team being hospitalised.

Police Story 2
Demoted to traffic cop after the events of the first film, Chan Ka-Kui is reinstated to the detective unit when a deadly gang of explosive experts blow up a building and threaten to blow up more if their demands are not met. Featuring yet more bravura stunt work, and even more injuries to its cast and crew, ‘Police Story 2’ is to this day considered one of the best action films ever made.
