Police Story (1985)
Languages: Mandarin, Cantonese
7–9 p.m., Hodges Library auditorium
Considered -- and rightly so -- a Hong Kong action cinema classic, Police Story marks Jackie Chan’s initial foray into the stunt-filled action movie genre that became his trademark.
Jackie Chan plays an honest cop, Chan Ka-Kui, assigned to protect a witness whose key testimony could bring down the drug baron, Chu. However, when the witness gets away from Chan, there’s no evidence to put Chu away, and he is set free. Chu goes on a vendetta to frame Chan for a murder. He goes on the run and must quickly find the witness to protect her and prove his own innocence.
Thursday, February 7 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm
