Director: Stanley Tong
Stars: Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, Yuen Wah
American audiences got their first dose of Hong Kong native Jackie Chan's lively, comedic take on martial arts in 1995, with the successful but ultimately uneven Rumble In The Bronx. But it wasn't until Supercophits U.S. theaters in 1996 (four years after its initial Japanese release) that stateside action fans were blessed with the man's true genius.
For purists, Supercop remains Chan's all-around best movie, and it's easy to see why: With high-flying, hilariously timed stunts (all performed by the man himself) and impeccable chemistry with fellow kick-and-punch champ Michelle Yeoh, director Stanley Tong's balls-out romp never gets old.
