1988 • dir Jackie Chan w/Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Kwok-Hung Lam, Bill Tung • 122 min • DCP

Jackie Chan followed up the massive success of POLICE STORY with an even bigger box-office hit. Having been demoted to a lowly traffic cop for his, ahem, unorthodox policing methods, Chan’s go-it-alone officer Ka-Kui quits the force in protest. But it isn’t long before he’s back in action, racing the clock to stop a band of serial bombers and win back his much-put-upon girlfriend May (the phenomenal Maggie Cheung, reprising her star-making role). Boasting epic explosions, an awesomely 1980s electro soundtrack, and a showstopping finale – which turns an abandoned warehouse into a life-size pinball machine of cascading oil drums, collapsing scaffolds, and shooting fireworks – POLICE STORY 2 confirmed Chan’s status as a performer of unparalleled grace and daring.

Staff Pick: Greg, Kim, Cardinal, Erica – “They’ve got everything – wacky stunts and Jackie Chan’s butt. I won’t tell you in which movie though.”
