Supercop ★★½ Police Story 3: Supercop 1992 (R)

Super Hong Kong cop Kevin Chan (Chan) heads to China to assist the authorities in cracking an international drug ring. He's partnered with disciplined-but-beautiful Director Yang (Yeoh), who's also a terrific fighter, and the duo go undercover (as a married couple) to infilitrate the operation, which takes them to a Malaysian resort. Then Chan's girlfriend shows up, blowing their cover. Lots of action-packed fighting and wild chases. The 1996 American release loses about a half-hour of run time from the original. Dubbed from Cantonese. 93m/C VHS, DVD . HK Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, Kenneth Tsang, Yuen Wah; D: Stanley Tong; W: Edward Tang, Fibe Ma, Lee Wai Yee; C: Ardy Lam; M: Joel McNeely.
