He’s the most versatile and exciting player in action film genre, Jackie Chan and in August Eureka Entertainment is set to release Police Story+ Police Story 2 on Blu-ray.
Two of the finest action films ever made from cinema’s reigning martial arts king, for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK on 20 August 2018, in a Limited Edition (3000 copies) Hard Cased Box Set.
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, living up to his reputation as a fearless performer. We do love Police Story and Police Story 2 for there dazzling blend of gritty action cop drama and impeccably choreographed martial-arts sequences that revitalised the Hong Kong action genre and made 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 “supercop” 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 hospitalised.
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 (3000 copies) Box Set packed with extra content.
If you’re like us seeing these films reminds us of those late nights on Channel Four, especially at Christmas. When there’s nothing on and your not tired, Jackie Chan film was always on!
