Considered a Hong Kong classic, Police Story marks Jackie Chan’s initial foray into the big-time, stunt-filled action movies that are now his trademark.
Chan plays honest, self-effacing cop Chan Ka-Kui, assigned to protect Selina (Brigitte Lin), whose key testimony could bring down drug baron Chu (Chor Yuen). However, refusing to cooperate with Ka-Kui, the witness evades his protection, leaving Chu with no evidence against him, and is set free. Intent on revenge, Chu wages a vendetta, and frames Ka-Kui for murder. On the run and with time running out, Ka-Kui must quickly find and save Selina from being killed, as well as prove his own innocence.
