As shown beneath the closing credits, Maggie Cheung suffered a major head injury while trying to outrun the falling metal frames. Cheung was unable to finish the movie after this incident, so you never see her face. She is always shown from a distance. Crystal Kwok, who plays a policewoman in this movie, filled in as Cheung's double for the remainder of the movie. See more »

Chan Ka Kui:
Dynamite is a controlled substance. There's only two ways you can get it; legally for industrial use, or, it has to be smuggled in.

Interesting; I never thought of that.

The original Hong Kong version has a different opening than the English. The trucks on the road interchange with Raymond and Uncle Bill in the office with Ka Kui disciplining about his actions in the first movie. There is a scene in the Original Version totally cut from the English version. When Ka Kui and Bill head to meet Fung's secretary, Bill passes gas in the elevator and to make sure he can plant the bug, Ka Kui hides under a table during an important staff meeting. See more »
"Police Story 2" is a movie that mostly shows Jackie Chan's serious side. His performance is relatively mature and restrained, and he allows his character to be portrayed as not only brave, smart and determined, but flawed and selfish as well (his scene with Maggie Cheung after the fight in the playground is a key point). There is less slapstick and more plot than usual for a Chan movie; less emphasis on comedy and more on action. The action sequences are superb, and that deaf-mute guy with the incredible martial-arts skills is one of the most memorable villains Jackie ever had to face (literally: I had seen the film only once before in 1997 and I still remembered him clearly). (**1/2)
