Film: Jackie Chan’s POLICE STORY 1 & 2

Saturday, March 16, 2019

 

ICFS presents this newly-restored DOUBLE-FEATURE classic!
POLICE STORY (1985) and POLICE STORY 2 (1988)

The jaw-dropping set pieces fly fast and furious in these breathtakingly inventive action comedies, two smash hits that made Jackie Chan a worldwide icon of daredevil spectacle. The director/star/one-man stunt machine plays a Hong Kong police inspector whose methods are, ahem, unorthodox, while the phenomenal Maggie Cheung – in a star-making role – plays his much-put-upon girlfriend. Packed wall-to-wall with astoundingly acrobatic fight choreography, epic explosions, and inspired Buster Keaton-esque slapstick, Police Story and Police Story 2 set a new standard for rock-’em-sock-’em mayhem that established Chan as a performer of unparalleled grace and daring and would influence a generation of filmmakers, from Hong Kong to Hollywood.  The first of the two films also stars cinema legend, Brigitte Lin!   As with other ICFS events, expect prizes, surprises, comfy couches and absolutely kickass drink specials! Rated PG-13 for violence, brief sexual humor, drug content, “pervasive martial arts action” and some nudity.  Both movies run 101 minutes each.
