Jackie Chan’s ‘Police Story’ & ‘Police Story 2’ (Eureka Classics) on Blu-ray – August 20, 2018!

Two of Jackie Chan s most iconic films explode onto Blu-ray from incredible new 4K restorations! Featuring some of the most dangerous stunts ever performed on camera, Police Story and Police Story 2 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 hospitalized. 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. Presented from brand new 4K restorations and fully uncut, Eureka Classics is proud to present Jackie Chan s Police Story and Police Story 2 for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a special Limited Edition Box Set packed with extra content!

    Someone needs to release the original Japanese cuts of Police Story 3 (Supercop) and Police Story 4 (First Strike). Everyone always just puts out the international cuts. I think Supercop is actually pretty close to the original, but if I’m understanding correctly First Strike is nothing like the original cut and there’s a lot missing.

  2. Gerard Iribe

    Agreed, Brandon. I’m hoping Eureka will come through and put out parts 3 & 4 at some point. That would be amazing!
