Details Release Date: Dec 19, 2006; DVD Release Date: Dec 19, 2006; Movie Rated: PG-13; Genres: Action/Adventure, Mystery and Thriller; With: Jackie Chan and Brigitte Lin

It would be a mistake to describe Police Story, Jackie Chan's 1985 kung-fu cop film, as timeless. After all, one scene does have the Hong Kong action star moon-walking. But Chan's non-pop-rocking stunts still sizzle, including one seriously high-impact encounter with a bus. Nobody combines kicks and comedy like Chan...except perhaps Jean-Claude Van Damme, but that's unintentional.

EXTRAS
Rush Hour director/Chan fan Brett Ratner fawns during a featurette and a commentary; an alternate opening includes — among other things — more pies in faces.
