We have some great news for Hong Kong film fans! Shout! Factory have announced that they are bringing two classic Jackie Chan titles to the home video market on January 15th, and they are doing it with style. Well known for their fantastic releases, any time Shout nabs the rights to a movie that I like, I do a happy dance. I am actually a big fan of Crime Story, so I am amped to see Shout Factory giving it the Bluray treatment. So, without further delay, here is the technical info:
Jackie Chan stars in one of his grittiest roles ever as a police detective on the edge, who must race against time to solve a deadly kidnapping case. Based on the shocking true story of a billionaire abducted in a bold ambush, and filled with explosive martial-arts battles, Crime Story pulses with tension and excitement. Director Kirk Wong (The Big Hit) deftly combines acrobatic fight choreography with edge-of-your-seat action for this thrilling and dramatic tour-de-force for Jackie Chan.
Written and directed by James Glickenhaus (The Exterminator), The Protector stars Jackie Chan and Danny Aiello (Do the Right Thing) as a pair of NYPD cops sent to Hong Kong to catch a drug lord who has kidnapped the daughter of his former associate. Also starring martial-arts star Moon Lee (Angel Force) and Roy Chiao (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), this thriller features Hollywood-styled action sprinkled with Chan’s death-defying stunts.
