Police Story 2 – 1988 Jackie Chan
- It’s inferior to the 1985 original in almost every way but I do like that the talented up-and-comer Maggie Chueng has more to do here.
- It is a little quieter on the film style, the zooms and jump cuts.
- We start the film but basically a highlight reel of the first film and the music back getting us up to speed.
- Mall explosion
- Again- genre-blending—it is goofy, there’s flatulence in the elevator, squirt guns
- The swards in the playground is an excellent scene- a great place for Chan to show off his hand to hand athleticism and choreography
- It is clear that this film is brought to you by Mitsubishi Motors- distracting actually
- The jumping from the truck to the double-decker van set piece — wow
- The credits role and we have the stunt outtakes over the titles — showing off the sacrifice (blood galore)
- Recommend but not in the top 10 of 1988
