Even in his 60s, Jackie Chan is still kicking all sorts of ass. The legendary action star has shied away from the Hollywood action scene, mostly making movies in his native Hong Kong these days. Today we bring you the trailer for Police Story: Lockdown, the latest installment in the venerable action series. I doubt, however, that Lockdown will match the dizzying highs of Police Story 3: Supercop, which remains one of the finest action movies ever made. Even though he’s still viewed as a martial arts legend, I feel that Jackie Chan never gets the proper amount of acclaim for his brillance in crafting thrilling action sequences that maintain a certain comedic balance — he’s a modern day version of Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, and Charlie Chaplin, but with more ass-kicking.
Police Story: Lockdown will be available on VOD starting June 5th, 2015. The film will also play theatrically in Los Angeles, San Fransisco, and Hawaii starting also on June 5th.
The official synopsis for Police Story: Lockdown:
Police Captain Zhong Wen (Jackie Chan) knows all about sacrifice. He’s always been too busy chasing bad guys to be a father to his daughter Miao (Jing Tian). Tonight, he’s seeing her for the first time in years – and meeting her fiance, club owner Wu Jiang (Liu Ye). But Wu knows Zhong. And his plans for the evening include taking Miao, Zhong, and the entire club hostage. Zhong knows about sacrifice. What will he give up to save his daughter?
