Consensus: Blending hand-to-hand combat with breathtaking stunts and slapstick comedy, Supercop reminds us why Jackie Chan is one of the world's great entertainers.

If you're tired of burned-out coppers in Hollywood's blockbusters, try this offbeat hero from Hong Kong.

The most powerful starring role for a woman this summer? My vote goes to Michelle Khan in this garish, frenetic, and funny chopper from Rumble in the Bronx director Stanley Tong.

Supercop is filled with wide shots and long takes making it clear that Chan and Khan really are out there on the edge performing those bone- crunching stunts.

To watch Jackie Chan, Hong Kong's king of kung fu comedy, in the fresh and exhilarating Super Cop is like watching Douglas Fairbanks Sr. or one of the silent era clowns in one of their biggest hits.

All this is executed with a good deal of panache, if not originality, by stunt coordinator Stanley Tong.

Great action, amazing stunt work. With a cast of Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Chung and Jackie Chan, it's hard not to enjoy.

Tsubaki Sanjuro
Some of the best action sequences you will find in any movie. One of the high marks in both Jackie and Michelle's career.
Tim Salmons
A fun action movie with Jackie Chan's usual bumbling character manner. Had a lot of fun watching this one.
