POLICE STORY
Winner 'Best Picture' & 'Best Action Choreography'

Regarded by fans and critics alike as the apex of Jackie Chan's celebrated career, Police Story breaks new ground with its breathtaking fights and incredible stunt sequences. Featuring a top-notch cast, which includes multi-award-winning actresses Brigitte Lin & Maggie Cheung, director Chan combines a compelling storyline of an honest cop on the run from a false murder charge with dynamic visuals and full-blooded fight action which is electrified with emotional underscoring.

In the case of this particular project the price of excellence was high, with many of Jackie's elite stunt team being seriously injured during the course of principal photography. The opening bus sequence alone sent 4 stunt players to hospital for a long term vacation, and Jackie has been unable to get insurance coverage for any of his Hong Kong projects ever since.

One of the most influential films ever to come out of Hong Kong, Police Story is now fully restored and digitally re-mastered for its premiere UK DVD release. A fitting tribute to one of the best loved action-adventure stars of all time!

NEW POLICE STORY
Unshackled by the safety monitors of Hollywood Jackie Chan returns to old school hard action! (Daily Star)

New Police Story shows fans both new and old that Jackie Chan is still the man for eye-popping action. The Police Story movies are regarded by fans and critics alike as the apex of Jackie Chan's celebrated career so it's no wonder that he's back as Detective Chan. This time the challenges for Chan are bigger than ever as he battles personal demons and goes head to head with a gang of vicious cop killers in a frenzy of "stylish, take-no-prisoners kung fu carnage". (Nuts)

As the leader and sole survivor of a disastrous mission, where his entire team is killed by a bank-robbing gang of fashion-trash punks, Inspector Wing (Jackie Chan) is racked with guilt and falls into a drunken stupor. With a young supporting cast of HK idols (Charlie Yeung and Charlene), Jackie Chan gets to flex his acting muscles asmuch as his high-kicks in a darker and broodier thriller which boasts plenty of ridiculously entertaining (and dangerous) physical and motor stunts!

Released August 22nd 
DRAGON LORD
International box-office champion Jackie Chan cranks up the adrenaline for the no-holds-barred stunt-fest 'Dragon Lord', by combining dynamic sports action and bone-crunching martial arts, a formula later championed in the Stephen Chow smash-hit 'Shaolin Soccer'.

Jackie plays 'Dragon', a talented young martial arts student and sports champion who falls in love with a beautiful young village girl, and, in his humorous struggle to win her over, gets caught up in a dangerous plot to smuggle precious artefacts out of China.

Featuring an explosive, jaw-dropping 20-minute fight finale with Hapkido Grandmaster Wong In-sik, 'Dragon Lord' showcases some of the best stunt-action of Jackie's celebrated career, and set a new 'Guinness World Record' for the highest number of 'takes' (2900) required for a single sequence in a movie.

Dragon (Chan) and his buddy Cowboy get mixed up in a plot to swipe some valuable Chinese antiques and are forced to kick butt. However, the real attraction here is a number of show-stopping set pieces that involve Jackie and Cowboy playing some pretty demented versions of Badminton and Football, all while trying to win the heart of a local beauty.
