Summary: Wow! A movie JC fans can NOT miss!!
Comment: This is quite possibly one of Jackie's best films. It lacks the slapstick humor so many American audiences are accustomed to, but you actually get to see Jackie ACT! This is the way he should have been been introduced to America. A great film to see and share.

Summary: A very serious movie
Comment: It's Jackie's most rare movie, it is very graphic, realistic feel to it about a hard life of honest cops. This is not a martial arts flick, although it has that, it is much more, a real detraction from Jacky Chan's usual funny style. It's not a comedy. It is a suspense detective. Enjoy one of Jacky's rarest, but wonderfully made movies.

Summary: very nicely done
Comment: An excellent well put together package. The special collector's edition of Jackie Chan's classic 1993 Crime Story. With added special features including Deleted Scenes (3), Feature Commentary with Director Kirk Wong and Hong Kong Cinema Expert Bey Logan, A Journey to the Underworld: An Exclusive Interview with Director Kirk Wong, From The Page to the Silver Screen: An Interview with Writer Teddy Chen and Trailer Gallery.

If you already have the first edition of this great movie. I would still invest the collectors edition as it brings more action, suspense and intrigue. Jackie Chan plays a cop that is witness to a kidnapping of a prominient businessman and his wife. The wife is forced into giving the kidnappers almost 60 million dollars. As the movie progresses Jackie runs into all kinds of people out to kill him for what he knows and a secret or two buried right in his own office. The movie is fast paced and full of classic Jackie battles. Crime Story won't be one of those movies that disappoint either as it still holds up despite all the time that has passed.

Summary: Straightforward crime thriller wastes Jackies abilites
Comment: Supposedly based on true events, Crime Story puts Jackie Chan in his usual hero cop role against a group of criminals and their kidnapping scheme. Unlike his Police Story movies, this film plays it straight with an emphasis on realism and drama over martial arts and stunts. Missing here are any of Jackies usual over the top antics and absolutely none of his humor or charm. It's interesting to see Jackie play this stiff of a role and he does a fine job but I'm not sure why you would ever cast him to be this bland. I guess they wanted to differentiate this from the Police Story films (he goes by Eddie Chan here rather than his real name like in Police Story 1 & 2)but I for one yearned for those pictures while watching this (in fact it forced me to rethink my original rating on Police Story 2 to 4 stars instead of 3). This is still worth catching once at least... and who knows, maybe I'm missing something that the other reviewers are seeing? If you always wanted to see what Chan's career would have been like if he wasn't one of the greatest martial artists ever this is for you... for those who watch Chan movies for unique fights and exhilerating stunts you'll have to go elsewhere. No matter your feelings on the film Dragon Dynasty has released it in usual top notch form here.
