Jackie Chan is on the trail of terrorists in possession of a nuclear device. His main lead is Tsui and Jackie is hard on his trail. This leads Chan to Australia and Tsui’s marine biologist sister.

First Strike originally is part of the Police Story line in Hong Kong. But when released in America, that part was omitted. Also the movie had 20 minutes edited out. Still First Strike is packed with plenty of action.

Chan really put his body on the line in this one and suffered an injury that prevented a final fight scene; same thing happened in Rumble in The Bronx. Some of the more notable moments involved Jackie actually jumping into an extremely cold lake. And a wonderfully executed fight in a warehouse involving a ladder; in the outtakes you can see Chan hurting himself with the ladder.

First Strike was Chan’s take on the James Bond films. Some think that it did not have enough kung fu action. Although the acting and plot were very strong; most would agree Chan’s films tend to lack in both departments.

First Strike was widely released in movie theaters in America and helped to increase Jackie Chan’s popularity here. This was an excellent choice of films to bolster his career.
