User Reviews: The first half hour or so of "Police Story II" is easily it’s best and it seems as if the sequel to the original action masterpiece is going to be almost as good. Unfortunately once Jackie goes undercover it starts to drag, and the film struggles to recover.

It’s still enjoyable stuff though, but it’s so hard to live up to the original, particularly when you’re making it in such a similar way, "Supercop" made the right move by making it much different to it’s predecessors. It’s great to see Maggie Cheung with a larger role though. I refuse to acknowledge "First Strike" as part of the Police Story series; it doesn’t even have Maggie! By the way, never ever watch dubbed/P&S Jackie movies (e.g. video store copies). God-awful!
