Director Stanley Tong's wildly successful collaboration with international action hero Jackie Chan gets off to a flying start in SUPERCOP, the story of an affable, tenacious, and unstoppable Hong Kong cop's quest to bring down the biggest drug syndicate in the Pacific Rim. Kevin Chan (Chan) and a stunningly beautiful female police officer from mainland China, Hanna Yang (Michelle Khan), pose as brother and sister to infiltrate the crooked operation and once there unleash their spectacular arsenal of high-kicking, bone-rattling kung fu.
Chan, whose irresistible onscreen persona suggests a hybrid cinematic reincarnation of Buster Keaton and Bruce Lee, was already the biggest box-office draw in the world when SUPERCOP (originally produced in 1992) gained a U.S. theatrical release in 1996. The film displays Chan's dual mastery of physical comedy and martial arts while also (in outtakes shown behind the closing credits) showcasing his notorious predilection for handling his own stunts. Chan's daredevil approach was shared in the film by his breathtaking costar, Khan, also known as Michelle Yeoh, a former Miss Malaysia who would go on to solidify her reputation as a peerless action star in her own right with the stupendous critical and popular success of the 1999 film CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.
