    Great news. Hoping this release has reversible art. Was pumped for the Police Story UHD box, but that art killed it for me. I want to say it's just about the discs, but when you have a budget & limited shelf space, there's no room for ugly. Dragons Forever it is!

    As with their recent release of Hero, though not as bad as that disc, Half a Loaf of Kung Fu runs 58 seconds short due to frame cuts.

    The most action-packed trilogy of all time comes to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for the first time ever!

    [For immediate release] Eureka Entertainment to release THE POLICE STORY TRILOGY, the exhilarating martial arts comedies that established Jackie Chan as a worldwide superstar. Presented as part of the Eureka Classics range in their worldwide Ultra HD Blu-ray debuts from stunning 4K restorations. Available from 26 September 2022, the Limited-Edition set (4000 copies only) will feature a Hardbound Slipcase & 100-page Collector’s Booklet.

    The most action-packed trilogy of all time comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray for the first time ever! Featuring some of the most dangerous stunts ever performed on camera, these three films represent the pinnacle of Jackie Chan’s unique style of Hong Kong action filmmaking. A dazzling blend of gritty action cop drama, impeccably choreographed martial-arts sequences, and bone-crunching stunt work – this series of films revitalised the Hong Kong action genre and established Jackie Chan as a worldwide superstar.

    Police Story (dir. Jackie Chan, 1985) – considered by Jackie Chan himself to be his best film in terms of pure action, Police Story stars Chan as “super cop” Chan Ka-Kui, who goes up against a notorious crime lord in a series of escalating set-pieces that resulted in many of Jackie’s stunt team being hospitalised.

    Police Story 2 (dir. Jackie Chan, 1988) – Demoted to traffic cop after the events of the first film, Chan Ka-Kui is reinstated to the detective unit when a deadly gang of explosive experts blow up a building and threaten to blow up more if their demands are not met. Featuring yet more bravura stunt work, and even more injuries to its cast and crew, Police Story 2 is to this day considered one of the best action films ever made.

    Police Story 3: Supercop (dir. Stanley Tong, 1992) – Action superstar Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once) joins the series as Inspector Yang Chien-Hua, who teams up with Chan Ka-Kui to take down an international drug ring. With some of the most outrageous stunt sequences ever committed to film, Police Story 3: Supercop is an action masterpiece that must truly be seen to be believed.

    All three films consistently appear on lists of the best action films ever made, and Eureka Classics is proud to present them all in their worldwide Ultra HD Blu-ray debuts from stunning 4K restorations!
