Police Story
Action, Comedy, Crime | 1985 | PG-13. 1hr 41min
CAST: Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin DIRECTOR: Jackie Chan, Chi-Hwa Chen WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

A virtuous Hong Kong Police Officer must clear his good name when the drug lords he is after frames him for the murder of a dirty cop.

This was Jackie Chan's breakthrough action film, the work that got him past the ethnic boundaries of Hong Kong and into competition at the New York Film Festival in 1986. It also got him into the hospital after performing a stunt in which he fell through a glass canopy -- and stopped breathing.

One of the great 1980s action films. It's also one of the most 1980s action films.
Matt Zoller Seitz,
Featuring cinema's best bus-related stunt sequence, a spectacular finale in a shopping mall and, um, multiple instances of its star getting hit in the face with cake.
