JACKIE CHAN’S CRIME STORY & THE PROTECTOR COMING TO BLU-RAY FROM SHOUT FACTORY

 

HEY BASTARDS.

 

A double dose of Jackie Chan is coming to Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory. While none of the films represent the best in his catalog, CRIME STORY is a pretty dope film. Hopefully we will get the full cut of the film that Dragon Dynasty released (which featured the pre-credits sequence with the kidnappers). THE PROTECTOR has its moments, but overall it’s pretty run of the mill stuff. Here’s the skinny from the press release:

CRIME STORY
Jackie Chan stars in one of his grittiest roles ever as a police detective on the edge, who must race against time to solve a deadly kidnapping case. Based on the shocking true story of a billionaire abducted in a bold ambush, and filled with explosive martial-arts battles, Crime Story pulses with tension and excitement. Director Kirk Wong (The Big Hit) deftly combines acrobatic fight choreography with edge-of-your-seat action for this thrilling and dramatic tour-de-force for Jackie Chan.
