New Police Story | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Robert Hanks Independent (UK) Rated: 2/5 Oct 14, 2006 Full Review New Police Story | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Movie Pulse The script is bad, particularly during the melodramatic finale, but the brutal action definitely compensates. Plus it is good watching someone else being the clown in the stead of Jackie Chan and Nicholas Tse is pretty good in the role Rated: 6 Jun 4, 2023 Full Review New Police Story | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Kaleem Aftab The List When the stunts struggle to hold interest in a Jackie Chan vehicle you know you're in for a tough time. Rated: 2/5 Nov 3, 2018 Full Review New Police Story | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Anton Bitel Eye for Film Pretty much everything in New Police Story seems so contrived that Alan Yuen's screenplay may as well have been written with a crowbar.

4oixz why they switch it up bruh and some kids be the villain now Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Liam D It's more of a Crime Thriller and A much more darker movie in the franchise but it still has great action sequences and Jackie Chan (Mr. Nice Guy, Who Am I?) still kicking butt Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/29/22 Full Review carlos t Minha opinião: Desde do ínicio do ano 2000 Jackie Chan se concentrou em filmes mais ao estilo drama, saindo de estilo que o colocou no estrelato que foi #humor com #ação e #lutas Ele partiu mais para o estilo de pessoa depressiva, suicida. O Estrangeiro, Karate Kid, O Mito, Em Nome da Lei,.... Neste filme Jackie é um líder do esquadrão de policias, porem em uma ação contra um grupo de assaltantes armam uma emboscada onde todo seu esquadrão é morto e somente Jackie sobrevive. Apartir daí ele vive uma vida totalmente entregue ao álcool, pois sente toda a responsabilidade para si. Sem conseguir sair desta vida, vive sempre bêbado, até que novamente o grupo começa e um jovem aparece na sua vida. Dizendo que era o seu novo parceiro. Ele tenta encorajar novamente Jackie. Até que aos poucos ele desperta novamente seu lado policial. Até que descobrem que os assaltantes podem ser filhinhos de papai, que fazem aquilo como diversão. Até que a policia fecha o cerco e para salvar o bando chama Jackie. Será que ele conseguirá superar todos os traumas e vencer os bandidos. Um filme que traumático e de superação. Como sempre boas filmagens e cheio de acrobacias além de cenas no alto de uma estrutura, que sempre Jackie desce ao seu estilo. Eu sinceramente não gosto deste estilo do Jackie, acho que sempre acostumei com seu estilo cômico. Não deixa de ser bom.Roteiro: Cheio de drama e ação.Vale apena assistir? SimNota: 7 Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member New Police Story has the dubious honor of being the fifth entry in the legendary Hong Kong action comedy series. What begins as Darker and Edgier reboot of the Police Story series (which had taken a campy, spy flick turn in its third and fourth outings), ends up being hammier and sappier in the final acts. While the action is great, New Police Story misses the mark and loses the charm of its predecessors. While it's gritty story is more inline with the first two films, its setting and cinematography feels more akin to First Strike. The video game obsessed, extreme sports enthusiast bank robbers also date the film. It feel very 2003. Its almost like Jackie Chan set out to adapt an episode of Nash Bridges, and it just did not age well. While New Police Story will certainly entertain, and is largely up to snuff in the action department, it is notably lacking in laughs. While that would be ok on its own, the actors do not have the requisite gravitas to carry the film's dramatic moments. Perhaps this is a failing in the English dubbing. Nevertheless, where as weak voice acting may be passible in comedy, it doesn't hold up here.That said, New Police Story is lightyears better than Chan's American films of the same era. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Sameir A New Police Story seems not so very impressive. Jackie Chan tries drama here rather than his usual funny martial arts style. Somewhat good, but, as a total it lacks substance. There are actions and adventures, but, not really thrilling as the other films. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/17/21 Full Review Audience Member Nice fight scenes,and good script. But the non standard direction and editing makes the film weak! Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
