Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985) is heralded by many as the dawn of a new era in Hong Kong action movie fight scenes. The emphasis on shapes were not evident in this movie and the fighting style was more a kickboxing type style with incredible stunts and more realistic type reactions. As a co-action director on this film Fung Hak On needs to be mentioned (alongside Jackie and Sammo Hung,among others) as a person that helped shaped what was a new beginning for Hong Kong action cinema. Check out this great clip from Police Storyand it is, in my opinion, one of the top 5 fight scenes from any era in any movie industry location (Hollywood, HK, Indonesia, etc).
