Did You Know?
Despite having "Police Story" in the title, this film has nothing to do with Chan's other Police Story films.
When Frank is in the water surrounded by the rubber ducks you can see the green floating barrier at the top of the screen preventing the ducks from escaping.

Oh! That's my man!

The return of good Jackie Chan movies
In comparison with his American efforts, any of his Chinese based
movies easily outshines any of his newer US productions, and this
particular one is no exception. Though Jackie Chan is getting older, it
still doesn't stop him from making good (or bad) movies. It certainly
doesn't stop a lot of US actors. If I can move like Jackie Chan does when
I get to his age, i'd be glad. (Especially since I cant even do some of
those moves now) The movie moves at a steady pace, with some parts that
are a bit over-reaching and over-emotional, but has some really
spectacular stunts and action. I am posting this review primarily as a
counterpoint to the previous users comment. I don't understand why
someone who doesn't like ANY of Jackie Chan's movies would write a
(biased) review. I don't write reviews on movies I hate, and I don't go
to movies featuring an actor/acress I don't enjoy, so I have to wonder
why he did so.
