Jackie Chan's First Strike
New Line

First Strike, the fourth installment in Chan's Police Story series, may be thin in plot (nothing new), but it globetrots at a dizzying pace with good, clean daredevilry at every turn. Hong Kong cop Jackie (Chan) works with the CIA and a Russian intelligence organization to retrieve a stolen nuclear warhead and quickly sniffs out a rogue CIA agent. Jackie chases the bad guys from the Ukraine to Australia, innovatively using chairs, tables and sharks as weapons. As everyone should know by now, Chan performs all of the stunts himself.
