Review:

Starring Jackie Chan, SUPERCOP tells the story of Kevin Chan, an exceptional young Hong Kong police officer who agrees to go undercover in mainland China to catch the leader of a drug syndicate. In order to succeed in this highly dangerous mission, Kevin is matched up in mainland China with the beautiful female Chief of Security Yang . With the assistance of the authorities, Kevin Chan helps in the escape of a notorious drug dealer. Eventually, Chan and Yang meet the infamous drug lord Chaibat and earn his respect during a gun battle. Regrettably, Chan's cover is blown by his unknowing girlfriend. She is captured by Chaibat, and Chan must go to extraordinary lengths to get her back.

Jackie Chan is known for doing all of his incredible stunts without the aid of a stuntman, and he insists the same of his co-stars. The director has emphasized this fact by using camera angles and wide shots to emphasize the perilous nature of Jackie Chan's stunt work. Unlike Seagal's martial arts which result in broken bones, or Van Damme's gory scenes, Jackie Chan's are often an extended fight of wills, with exhaustion and frustration the deciding factor, not death. Without any martial arts meditation or mysticism, no sex, no nudity and next to no foul language, it is an action import.
