The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in Jackie Chan's breathtakingly inventive action comedies, two smash hits that made him a worldwide icon of daredevil spectacle.

Police Story and Police Story 2 set a new standard for rock-'em, sock-'em mayhem that established Chan as a performer of unparalleled grace and daring and would influence a generation of filmmakers, from Hong Kong to Hollywood.
