Ok, seriously. The first Police Story movie has the best stuntwork I've ever seen in a movie ever. This is a must buy.Shout factory has officially announced and detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of Jackie Chan's Police Story (1985) and Police Story II (1988).

Bellflower was an interesting mess...still, this could be fun.

I don’t even know if I need to say anything more. If you’ve seen Bellflower and you love it (some of you don’t, which is unfortunate), you’ll want to see what other insanity comes out of the minds of its makers. Once again there will be awesome cars, flamethrowers, but there will also be a lot of fights, a speed boat sequence and other great action sequences — if they can afford it all. Basically they’re doing this all DIY and can almost do it on their own, except the stunts are pretty costly.
Chuck Hank will be directed by producer/editor/composer Jonathan Keevil rather than Bellflower helmer Evan Glodell, though he and the rest of the Coatwolf collective are on board again. And it seems to have a really simple plot involving a turf war. The film is said to be an ’80s throwback influenced by (and not at all parodying) the action movies and video games (namely Double Dragon and Streets of Fire) from that era. “We want to create a visually rich world that honors a time when a street fight necessitated brass knuckles, chains, cut-off jean jackets, and HUGE Mohawks,”

Cool beans. I still wish it was R.I was really rather surprised by how solid SNITCH turned out. This is a simple movie that really delivers on the journey even as you get a feel for where you'll end up at the destination. It's a bit of a slow burn at times, but that's because Waugh has his eye on the prize knowing that it's more important to get you invested in what's going to happen before he takes it up a notch, as opposed to just giving you explosions and meaningless spectacle that would serve to undercut the emotion of the film. Waugh understands that you need to care about the story first, and, with the help of a game Johnson and Bernthal, is able to drive that home. I have no problem ratting out to you that SNITCH is definitely a worthwhile trip to the movies.
SNITCH Review | Collider
At the end of the day, the star is Johnson. I’ll admit, I was even more convinced that Snitch would be a straight up actioner when I saw Johnson cast in the role, but I was pleasantly surprised to find him playing a toned-down family man pushed to the limit…most of the time. There’s no hiding his imposing physique, but his charisma made the character likable, believable, and most importantly, vulnerable. This is no superhero, even though Johnson is as close to one as you can get. He’s just a father out to do whatever he has to in order to save his son.
Snitch is definitely more in the vein of The Next Three Days than A Good Day to Die Hard and I’d say that it’s all the better for it. Except for a few stumbles in the dialogue department, Snitch packs a lot of action into a script full of heart, hardship and those impossible decisions made within life’s gray areas.
