"There's many things wrong with this film, as people have said above, but in particular the DVD should be criticised for presenting the film in a terrible dubbed version only. Especially when the women in the film apart from Yeoh sound like California Barbies, and the men speak in this stereotyped Chinese accent. Gag!Plus, a striking lack of features, although I'd be hard pressed to think of what I'd like to have. I haven't seen the original, but with most of Dimension's American releases, they've probably jettisoned the original soundtrack for some USANetwork Action Film schlock.However, that said, there *is* a story here, which they should have focused on more, being the conflict between Yeoh's character and her lover-gone-bad. It would have made the ending tragic, instead of just a relief. Too much time is wasted on puerile "You're a woman, it's too dangerous for you" conversations between the rookie cops and Yeoh. Please.Anyway, bottom line, disappointing and Dimension Films should keep its hands off the original films, or at least allow us the alternative version on the DVD."
Low-kicking non sequel, at least it doesn't continue anythin

"Well I guess michelle is still a cop like she was in the last one, she just isn't funny or good whatsoever in this.
So I read a review that said that this is a michelle film and they are right. What they didn't say is that this is the most boring hong kong flick ever. Not one of them but the most boring and one of the stupidest.
The movie actually starts out really good but when Rongguang Yu leaves michelle to herself, there is a ton of standing around.
Oh yeah the iron monkey is in this, and not even he can save it. i actually think that he could have saved it, but whoever directed this was obviously trying to get into michelle's pants. So obviosly he didn't and he was maybe trying to ruin her career.
I love michelle and could make it through this, but if you liked supercop 1 and are expecting to see something similiar, DO NOT WATCH THIS.
Also jackie is in drag in this movie, his scene last for 2-3 minutes and it is one of the 3-4 bright spots in the movie. JACKIE YOU RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Good movie done poorly

"Don't let the reviews misguide you, on either account, this was a potentially good movie done horribly wrong. Yeoh is a great figher, and she's just as quick and nimble as Chan, but we are only treated to one real right scene by her? Not only that, but that fight scene is interrupted by her Co-stars less than stellar fight scenes? Is it because she's female? Heck, it got so bad at one point, that it looked like Yeoh was going to be beaten do death (literally) by a hired goon. Why 3 stars? Cause she beats the crap outta the goon in a spectacular manner and does some of her trademark poses afterwards."
Good Hong Kong Action.

"Now I said good--not great! This is a Michelle yeoh film, as the box states, not a Jackie Chan film, JC is in it for a strange 5 minutes. Yeoh is good--some excellent fight scenes, but the dubbing is horrible and the DVD has no option to leave it with subtitles- a big no-no. It's your basic HK action film with a little bit of story that may have worked, but the dubbing & delivery get in the way. I recommend Yeoh in "Wing Chun" for a fun traditional martial arts film."
Forget it, unless willing to see Michelle Yeoh in anything.

"Pretty bad. Apparently the makers of Supercop 2 (actually Police Story 3) failed to remember the formula to a good action flick. The action is far too brief and sporadic, at best, and there are a minimum of hair raising stunts. Instead, the movie gets mired down into too much plot and the stunts become negligible next to the boredom the film induces. One does not watch a Hong Kong action flick for the dramatic acting (witch, by the way, Yeoh is remarkably stiff and in need of a cattle prod to wake her up). Its not a great story, anyway.A far better Michelle Yeoh cop/gunplay and kung fu film is Royal Warriors, or just stick with Supercop (in HK- Police Story 2).The dubbing is pretty awful. Yeoh dubs herself, and while her English is great (after all, she was educated in Britain), her natural voice is so deliberate, slow, and seemingly self conscious, that it is flat and annoying. The dubbing company should be strung up for the way they dub some of the characters, particularly Jackie Chan in his brief, weird cameo. They use downright stereotypical Asian accents. The Jackie dubber has him saying, "Freeze Po-Reez!"(Freeze, Police)and "I so myself bored enough, that I began noticing little details to entertain myself. One of witch was the fact that Michelle shows her European education by turning the pages of a Chinese magazine the wrong way (in China one reads right to left, but she flips the pages the English way, left to right)."
