An absurd comedy about a Parking Enforcement Officer, who - despite constant abuse from the public - finds truth, honour and serenity in the act of ticketing. His religious devotion to the work is challenged however, when his best friend and personal mentor is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma. With the help of an angry young filmmaker, a Russian sound recordist hoping to break into the local film industry, and a seven-foot tall tow truck driver from Quebec, he embarks on a comical investigation into... the delicate art of parking.

The detective is worried this mission may be more than he can handle and isn't sure his female comrade will alleviate his concerns. He will need to bring down the drug lord in an elusive but effective way. Can he work with his Chinese counterpart?"She gave me her female back talk so I thought I'd teach her a lesson."Stanley Tong, director of Rumble in the Bronx, Jackie Chan's First Strike, Supercop 2, The Legend of the Swordsman, and China Strike Force, delivers Supercop. The storyline for this picture is just okay and could have been better. The action scenes were pretty good and well choreographed and the comedic contest was entertaining. The acting is as you'd expect for the genre and the cast includes Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, Wah Yuen, Kenneth Tsang, and Kim Penn."You and your sister are so affectionate."Supercop is a movie I procrastinated on seeing again because I remember this being just another Chan picture. Watching it again it is a nice addition to the genre and entertaining. I wouldn't call this anything special or a must have for your martial arts DVD collection, but it is a must see for fans of the genre."You think I'm going to work with you again?"Grade: C+/B (6.5)

Anne Bancroft as the spunky, spirited, and book-loving Helene Hanff and Anthony Hopkins plays the kindly English bookseller, Frank Doel. Their correspondence and long-distance acquaintance spans years, book titles, and daily life anecdotes that endear us to the whole cast.

Ben G (gb) wrote: It could have been worse... but it would have been difficult. Actors and shooting are bordering very decent but the script has to be one of the least inspired and consequential one ever produced by the MGM. The worse is certainly that it bears no relationship with the original, just for that they should all be thrown to the Tchekniks!
