Far superior -- in terms of plot and action -- to Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop can be considered Jackie Chan's breakout film in the United States -- even though it didn't really make it to western shores until three years after its release. The dubbing on this version is hilarious, but, as is usual for Chan films, the dialogue isn't really the point. The semi-serious plot, which involves Chan as the titular Supercop going undercover to infiltrate a major southeast Asian ****** operation. He's joined by Michelle Yeoh (billed as Khan in what turned out to be her major breakout role), and as the two of them embark on a kung-fu-and-explosions-laden odyssey that takes them, eventually, to Malaysia, the chemistry between the pair makes the film. A half hour in, Yeoh, who until this point is a buttoned-down Chinese security chief, leaps into the action, and from this point on the film doesn't really let up. There are occasional forays into comedy, as when the two of them run into Chan's girlfriend (played by Maggie Cheung) in Kuala Lampur, where she manages to blow their cover, but the final half-hour of Supercop is essentially one long chase scene, involving helicopters, motorcycles, and the obligatory fight atop a moving train. Supercop may be a Chan vehicle, but Yeoh steals the show, so effectively that she got her own installment in the Police Story series, Supercop 2. Genevieve Williams, All Movie Guide
