Critic Reviews for Police Story 2 (Ging chaat goo si juk jaap) (Police Force II)
Evidently, the extreme focus on action takes a toll to the narrative, although I found this aspect beneficial to a point, since this tactic does not allow much space for the illogicalities that formed a large part of the first's story.
The film's paralytic self-seriousness fails to mesh with its outlandish characters and scenarios.
Police Story 2 saves a lot of the action for the third act, and that third act is a doozy
the dexterity of not just Chan's physicality, but his balancing of comedy and suspense and violence and intrigue is what makes his films so consistently enjoyable
If the comedy routines occasionally fall flat, there's nothing second-rate about the fights, falls and other stunt-dependent routines that are the bread and butter of this series.
Arresting fight scenes well orchestrated. Whatever area the fights take place in, everything in the vicinity will be used to fight with; whether it's a shoe, two small steps, or a sock - Chan will find a way to use them creatively during the fight.
Audience Reviews for Police Story 2 (Ging chaat goo si juk jaap) (Police Force II)
Basically the same as the first movie, but with less comedy.
A sequel that delivers more of the same that made the first movie so entertaining. Great fight sequences, painful stunts and some funny moments as well. Much of the same cast return too along with Jackie Chan's crew of fearless stuntmen. The excitement level just drops off a bit during the second half of the film, it could have done with being a bit shorter. A very worthy sequel overall.
A much slower paced film than the original, however it doesn't really disappoint. I really wanted to fall in love with Police Story 2, and call it better than the original, but it's just not possible, when it seems much slower and less action packed. Police Story 2 is a great movie, but it's no Police Story.
