About the Film:
Directed by Jackie Chan. 1988. 122 min. Cantonese with English subtitles.
Jackie Chan followed up the massive success of Police Story with an even bigger box-office hit. Having been demoted to a lowly traffic cop for his, ahem, unorthodox policing methods, Chan’s go-it-alone officer Ka-Kui quits the force in protest. But it isn’t long before he’s back in action, racing the clock to stop a band of serial bombers and win back his much-put-upon girlfriend May (the phenomenal Maggie Cheung, reprising her star-making role). Boasting epic explosions, an awesomely 1980s electro soundtrack, and a show stopping finale—which turns an abandoned warehouse into a life-sized pinball machine of cascading oil drums, collapsing scaffolds, and shooting fireworks—Police Story 2 confirmed Chan’s status as a performer of unparalleled grace and daring. Join us to experience the new 4K restoration of this action classic.
On Saturday, April 20 at 7:30pm, join us for a film introduction by Crystal Kwok, Hong Kong filmmaker and actress who starred in Police Story 2.
