    Synopsis


    First Strike
    Ever wondered what a James Bond movie might be like if (a) Bond was from Hong Kong, (b) he was too busy to chase women or drink martinis, and (c) he spent a lot more time kicking people? Well, Jackie Chan gives us an idea of what the results might be as he plays a superspy in this funny and fast-moving action saga. Jackie (Jackie Chan) is a top cop from Hong Kong whose services are enlisted by the American CIA to follow a woman named Natasha (Grishajeva Nonna) who is travelling to the Ukraine. Natasha is smuggling U.S. currency into the former Soviet Union -- enough of it that a terrorist named Tsui (Jackson Lou) has been able to purchase a nuclear warhead from the Russian Mafia on the black market. Joining forces with Russian intelligence, Jackie and Ukrainian agent Gregor (Yuri Petrov) follow Tsui's trail to Australia, where Annie (Chen Chun Wu), the terrorist's sister, works at an oceanic theme park and uses deadly sea creatures to protect the illegally-obtained warhead. As usual, narrative takes a back seat to Chan's peerless action sequences and stunt work, including a chase of snowboards, a battle with sharks, and a memorable fight in which Chan proves that a ladder can be a splendid strategic weapon. As with many of Chan's films, Police Story 4: First Strike has been released under a multitude of titles in different territories, including Jackie Chan's First Strike, Police Story 4: Piece of Cake, and Police Story 4: Story of the CIA. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Not quite the classic I remember from my first viewing in the 90's, First Strike is still an incredibly fun film. The action set pieces are top notch and the acting, well, they tried. The film that introduced a lot of people to Jackie Chan will always remain a favorite of mine no matter how goofy it can be.

      First Strike is in line with Jackie's other mid-late 90's films. The original HK version is better(really wish it was included) but it's still a super fun flick. Great fights, spot on humor and a real crowd pleaser.

      Classic Chan action comedy, all the right stuff, all well done. His newer things as of late are generally weak, this is a fun watch. Not perfect, but a fun watch.

      Only the Ladder Fighting Scene Was Good

      The only saving grace this film posesses is a really cool fight scene in which Jackie Chan fends off several attackers with a step ladder. Other than that, the film is awful.

      Always loved his older movies full of character, action, intense fight scenes and of course no stunt double
